Denture Exams & Maintenance

Your dentures are an investment in your oral health and require regular attention in order to produce the best results. We recommend that you schedule an appointment for denture maintenance annually, as this will help ensure that your appliance fits and functions correctly.
There are several components to denture exams and maintenance, and your appointment will include care for both your mouth and your denture. These components include:
Medical and Dental History Update
Make our dentist aware of any changes in your medical or dental history, including medications you are taking or any medical or dental conditions that you have developed.
Visiting the dentist regularly is key to maintaining good oral health. Even if you are wearing dentures, you still need to meet with our team for routine examinations. These exams help us detect developing problems and other abnormalities in your mouth and allow us to assess if your dentures are meeting your needs. We will also clean and polish your denture and review your oral hygiene with you during the exam.
Tissue and Bone Assessment
Poorly fitted dentures cause changes to your bone and gum tissues. Our dentist will check the fit of your dentures and the overall condition of your mouth and, if needed, will make recommendations to correct any problems as quickly as possible.
Comfort, Fit and Integrity of Your Dentures
Many of the problems caused by ill-fitting dentures can be corrected quickly, including problems with your bite, speech impediments and tissue irritations. Treating these conditions promptly helps you avoid more extensive problems in the future and ensures that your appliance functions correctly and looks natural.

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are scary and inconvenient. Dr. Rice is trained in extractions, root canal treatments, and other emergency dental techniques.
Super staff and Dr. Rice did an amazing job! I've been slowly losing teeth for years now and feel like a new person with my new partials. Thank you so much!

I highly recommend Joshua Rice. I had a dental emergency. I cracked a molar while eating dinner. The next morning I looked for a dentist. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours. Everyone in the office is really nice. Dr Joshua Rice was great. He took care of my emergency, quickly and he was gentle.

I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous to go. Dr. Rice and his staff was calming, kind and attentive. They didn't gouge me for a dental plan, and I was very happy with the service I received. They gave me a dental plan I understood, were informative, and I'm happy I found my dentist! Very satisfied!

Best Dental office ever. The people are so nice. I actually look forward to my routine cleanings just to see the staff. I have been a client for several years and have never been treated bad.

Friendly, quick, and (never thought I would say this about going to the dentist), but very enjoyable! It was a pleasant surprise watching the NFL network while getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Rice has a great bedside manner.
