Dentures

Dentures have long been among the most common methods of replacing missing teeth. Although that has not changed, there is significantly less emphasis on the art of denture making. Dr. Thomas Fankhauser has been creating beautiful smiles with dentures for 37 years. At the time he attended dental school, dentures were a heavy part of the curriculum. Today, there isn’t a lot of focus on dentures, so new dentists don't come out of dental school with the same level of knowledge.

Creating dentures that fit well can be tricky. Depending on the situation, they can go good or bad. We do a lot of dentures here, and the uppers work great most of the time. Lower dentures are more problematic. In the past, we only charged for the upper denture, because there was no way of providing the patient with a lower denture that stayed in place well. With the advent of dental implants, we now have a way of keeping lower dentures in place, making them comfortable and functional.

Of course, our number one goal is helping our patients keep their natural teeth. This eliminates the need for dentures. However, if your teeth are already gone, you need some way of replacing them. Dentures are the answer. We are proud of the quality of our dentures, which have been called "drop dead gorgeous." We use one of the best labs in the country to ensure this superior quality.

As you and your gums adjust to the new appliances, there may be a few minor things to work out. Unlike some offices, we won’t nickel and dime you for adjustments. Our dentures include six months of free follow-up care.

We strongly recommend getting at least a couple of implants to stabilize lower dentures. If they are loose and sliding around when you are trying to talk or eat, they aren't very functional. Some people have experienced the embarrassment of having dentures fly out of their mouths while speaking or laughing. Thankfully, we can now avoid that situation with implants.

You don't have to spend another toothless day. Help is as close as our office – call 316-215-6018, or use the form located on this page to schedule your appointment.
As a rep I see hundreds of dental offices and the qualities I see in this office that are way above par are the systems, technology, and patient accommodations. By this I mean the staff is well voiced and educated and i think the Pre-treatment and post-treatment are well discussed and understood because nobody likes surprises and they do a great job at that. Also, they are flexible as far as you the patient. If you need to get in of course they are booked out but will give you the option of a Short list and they will do everything in their power to get you in and taken care of it. I see these qualities to be of great value as well as East Wichita dentist's state of the art dental technology when choosing who your family is counting on for their oral health wellness.
