Dentures in Sterling Heights, MI
Living with gaps in your smile can be inconvenient and frustrating. Not to mention the detrimental effects it can have on your confidence and self-image. If you’re looking for an affordable solution to replace missing teeth, dentures might be right for you.
Dentures are a removable appliance that rests along the gumline making them appear as natural as possible. You’ll be able to eat and speak with ease. Best of all, you won’t need surgery or an invasive procedure to complete your smile with dentures. They’ll also improve your appearance by supporting your facial structure.
The process is pain-free and within a few weeks, you’ll have your new smile.
The road to dentures is simple and relatively fast. Unlike other restorative procedures that can take months, you’ll have your dentures in a matter of weeks.
The process is simple and can be completed in a few steps:
During your consultation, Dr. Johnson will examine your oral health to ensure you’re a good candidate for dentures
You’ll pick the shade of your dentures, measurements will be taken, and a mold will be made and sent to the lab. Your dentures will be crafted to the exact specifications
Once your dentures arrive, you’ll come in for a fitting and we’ll make any last adjustments
You’ll leave our office with your new smile
Caring for your dentures is simple and can easily be incorporated into your routine. To get the most out of your dentures, you’ll want to follow a few steps:
Handle your dentures with care because porcelain tends to be fragile
Remove and rinse dentures after eating
Brush your dentures daily
Avoid hot liquids that can warp your dentures
Soak dentures overnight
Store dentures in a protective container away from children and pets
Schedule biannual appointments
Contact our office If you have a loose fit or develop a sore
In addition to these tips, you’ll want to continue a healthy oral hygiene routine by brushing your gums, tongue, and roof of your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush every morning. When you first get your dentures, it may take some time to adapt to the new appliance, but the more you practice, the easier it will be to adjust.
The cost of dentures varies depending on your specific needs and the type of dentures you receive. Some patients require supplemental treatments that can affect the overall price. Insurance typically covers a portion of the cost of dentures
We suggest contacting your provider for details on your specific coverage.

During the consultation, she’ll examine your oral health and create a customized treatment plan that will include a detailed list of pricing.
You’ll want to wait six to eight weeks after a tooth extraction to get dentures. This will allow time for the swelling to diminish and your gums to fully heal. After the healing period, Dr. Johnson will re-examine your mouth and determine if the timing is appropriate. This will ensure you get a proper fit on your new dentures.
No, you’ll want to remove your dentures and soak them overnight. One study suggests that sleeping with dentures increases your risk of developing pneumonia by 40%. This can lead to premature death, which is why it’s best practice to sleep without them. This time will also give your gums and jawbone a break from the pressure.
While most patients qualify for dentures, the best candidates are free of gum disease and tooth decay. To see if you qualify, we recommend contacting our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Johnson by calling (586) 939-5151.
During the consultation, she’ll examine your teeth and gums and may recommend a supplemental procedure to restore your oral health so you’ll be eligible for dentures.
