don’t want to replace the great teeth that god gave you with plastic ones.

Partial dentures are used when you have some natural teeth remaining. Partial dentures can be fixed or removable. Removable partial dentures consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and resin artificial teeth. Dr. Locker offers Valplast partial dentures that are made of flexible nylon material that is metal-free and translucent (you can see the natural gums through the material).

Removable partial dentures for the upper teeth are usually stable and do not require adhesive. Unlike traditional removable partial dentures, our partial dentures are natural-looking, comfortable, and secure.

Fixed partial dentures are anchored to your natural teeth by crowns, implants, or precision attachments. The dental crowns can be attached to natural teeth through a key and keyhole mechanism or other methods.


Complete dentures are used when all of your teeth are failing or missing. Complete dentures can be fixed or removable. Fixed dentures are anchored by dental implants, while removable partial dentures are secured by attachments. Complete dentures can be conventional (made in the dental lab and placed later) or immediate (placed immediately right after remaining teeth are extracted). Be sure to ask Dr. Locker why Immediate Dentures are not a good permanent solution.

At Gentle Family Dentistry, dentures and partials are made over multiple appointments to ensure perfect fit and a natural, healthy look. See your dentist in Duncansville to learn more about dentures and partials. Call 814-693-6777 now or click here to request an appointment.
