Custom dentures can be a good option if you want to replace several missing teeth. Removable dentures can renew your smile and help you speak and eat with more confidence. Dr. Kenneth Ingber and his experienced dental team can provide either full or partial removable dentures for patients in Washington, D.C. Full dentures can replace your entire upper arch, lower arch, or both while partial dentures use your remaining teeth as support. At Ingber Dental, we will help you decide whether full or partial dentures fit your needs, and then have them custom made to look beautiful. Schedule a consultation to learn more about removable dentures.
Partial or complete removable dentures need pastes and adhesives to stay put in place, but implanted dentures are anchored with titanium posts in your jaw in order to fit securely and keep stable. This ensures that the implant dentures will not slip out of place even when you are eating or speaking. With more security and support, patients with implanted dentures can feel confident that their dentures will remain in their mouth. Implant dentures look beautiful and can be cleaned just like natural teeth. At Ingber Dental, Washington, D.C. patients can get implant-supported dentures that feel comfortable and look natural. Get more information on implant dentures and decide if they are the right choice for you through a consultation at our facility.
"Dr. Ingber and his staff went out of their way to fit me in as a new patient on a Friday afternoon with extremely short notice. Dr. Ingber was knowledgable and kind, and the staff were very helpful. He explained things clearly too. I would recommend to friends."- J.C. / Google / Sep 06, 2019
"Appointment started on time, more or less. I felt safe removing my mask for the cleaning/X-Rays, etc."- G.K. / Google / May 28, 2021
"Like many people, I dread going to the dentist because of some horrible experiences I’ve had. But I have to say that my recent visit to Ingber Dental for my cleaning was one of the best experiences that I have had. My hygienist, Chanel was very thorough and very gentle. I actually felt myself relaxing. If I could have her as my dental hygienist for the rest of my life I will never miss another cleaning. Fantastic experience! I also had my exam done for the first time by Dr. Kaitlin Delaney. I appreciated her warm professionalism, the thoroughness of her exam and the fact that I didn’t feel like she was rushing between patients. Overall, a fantastic team and fantastic experience!"- M.F. / Google / May 19, 2021

Best Candidates for Dentures
You may be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, these may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. At your initial consultation, we will examine your oral health and explain your options based on your budget and needs.
What To Expect
If needed, any remaining teeth will be extracted before taking oral impressions, which will be used to customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless finish. Once your custom dentures are made, they will be fitted so they are secure and comfortable. A member of our team will talk with you about how to care for your dentures.
It may require some time before your new dentures feel natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your dentures feel loose, return to Ingber Dental to have your dentures refitted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice daily. At night or whenever you remove your dentures, they should be soaked to prevent them from drying out. Continue to schedule cleanings and exams at Ingber Dental so we can examine the wear and fit of your restoration and the health of your jaw and gums. We will let you know if your dentures need to be repaired or replaced, but with ideal care, your dentures should last for several years.
If you have dental insurance, part of the cost of your dentures will usually be covered. We will contact your dental insurance to understand your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. At your initial consultation, your treatment plan will be developed so your dentures fit both your needs and budget. For help making your dentures affordable, whether you have dental insurance or not, Ingber Dental accepts many forms of payment, including medical financing.
Get back your confidence to eat and speak when your mouth is restored with custom dentures. Our team at Ingber Dental is happy to be able to offer custom-made removable full and partial dentures for our patients in Washington, D.C.
