Restore Your Smile
with Versatile Dentures!
Start Your Journey The Same Day As Extraction
If you’re struggling with many missing or failing teeth or are already completely edentulous (toothless), you’ve come to the right practice. Dentures, like many other restorative treatments, have benefited from advances in dental technology and we’ve incorporated them into our practice.
We fabricate all types of dentures at our in-house denture lab, including complete and partial dentures, Snap-On dentures, implant-supported dentures, and even immediate dentures, also known as same-day dentures. Like other patients, you may decide you prefer same-day dentures because this protocol eliminates waiting several weeks for your mouth to heal and feeling self-conscious prior to getting your new dentures.
If you’re looking for traditional dentures, same-day dentures, or implant-supported dentures near you in Mesa, AZ, we can help. We also offer full arch dental implants if you decide you want the best permanent tooth replacement solution.
Our skilled and caring denture and implant expert Dr. Alyssa Mencini will discuss the pros and cons of each option to help you make an informed decision.
A Short Guide To Different Types Of Dentures
Full or Complete Dentures
Traditional or conventional dentures consist of both upper and lower sets of removable teeth crafted from acrylic resin or porcelain held together by a gum-colored acrylic or metal base. They require dental adhesive and removal at night for cleaning.
Upper and/or lower partial dentures are an alternative to bridges. They’re designed to fill in gaps created by missing teeth. Removable partial dentures have clasps built-in that clip onto adjacent teeth, while a fixed bridge partial denture is connected more permanently to teeth on either side of the dentures and only Dr. Mencini can unclip and remove it when needed.
Snap-on dentures use bar- or ball-retained attachments connected to surgically inserted implants in your jawbone. They fasten securely so you can chew the foods you love without worrying about your dentures coming loose, and also snap off with relative ease for cleaning.
Implant Supported Dentures
Although they may look similar to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are far more secure because the prosthesis is permanently attached to dental implants placed in your jawbone, rather than sitting on top of your gums. This protocol provides far greater support, comfort, and functionality while eliminating problems associated with traditional removable dentures.
What differentiates same-day dentures from traditional dentures is that you receive the prosthesis the same day your remaining teeth are extracted. Same-day dentures in Mesa, AZ can be complete or partial. This protocol allows your mouth to heal without the need to make major changes to your lifestyle.

The Process For Getting Immediate Dentures
After Dr. Mencini extracts your teeth, the denture is inserted in your mouth with a special material inside the denture base. During the first six months, she recommends being fitted with a soft liner, which cushions the denture while your gums heal. After healing is complete, a final fitting or reline of your same-day denture is performed to ensure a secure fit.
The Pros And Cons Of Same-Day Dentures
The biggest advantage of immediate dentures in Mesa, AZ is that you won’t have to cope another day with the downsides of tooth loss. It’s also easier to replicate natural teeth’ shape, color, and alignment prior to extraction.
Research shows that an immediate denture preserves facial appearance, height, muscular tone, and speech while reducing post-extraction pain.
Placement of a same-day denture also provides immediate improvement in your ability to eat and minimizes facial distortion that can occur after teeth are extracted. If you choose immediate dentures as a temporary solution, there is the added cost of paying for two sets of dentures and undergoing frequent adjustments while your gums heal.
