Missing teeth can make everyday tasks more difficult, but you don't have to live with reduced function.
Dentures are a customizable solution that can fill the gaps in your smile or complete an entire dental arch.
Nordhus Dentistry in Wichita, KS, provides durable and lifelike solutions.
Afraid of Dental Work? We'll Keep You Comfortable
We understand that dentures and other dental procedures can cause patients anxiety, so we go above and beyond to ensure patient comfort. In addition to offering blankets, pillows, and noise-canceling headphones during treatment, we can provide sedation options to help you relax.
Explore Dentures With Dr. Nordhus
A Versatile Solution That Can Fit Your Needs and Lifestyle
A partial denture can restore several teeth in a row or areas of tooth loss in multiple areas of your mouth. Partial dentures are recommended for patients who still have remaining healthy teeth.
A full denture can restore an entire arch of missing teeth on the top or bottom arch. These dentures are molded to fit the gum and bone ridges in the mouth.
Traditional dentures are prosthetic teeth supported on an acrylic base. They are removable and must be taken out every night to be soaked in a denture solution. Though they are less expensive than alternative options, many patients don't like them because they tend to move around in the mouth.
Dr. Nordhus can place 6-8 dental implants to support a denture and hold it firmly in place. Many people prefer this method because the denture won't slip out of place when eating, speaking, or laughing. Dr. Nordhus can surgically place implants at his Wichita, KS, office.
All-on-4® dental implants can support an entire full-arch restoration on just four strategically placed implants. This option can allow patients with low bone density to receive dentures without first undergoing a bone grafting procedure. We can bring in a specialist for advanced cases.

Caring for Your Denture and Making It Last
Cleaning Your Traditional Denture
If your denture is removable, take it out every night to brush it with a soft-bristle toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Be sure to brush your tongue, gums, and remaining teeth, as well. Soak your denture in a cleansing solution overnight to remove bacteria and let your gums rest.
Storing Your Denture in a Safe Place
When you're not wearing your denture, store it in a safe place so it can't get damaged. We recommend placing it in a glass of water or denture solution to maintain its shape.
Brushing Your Implant-Supported Denture
If you have an implant-supported denture, treat it like you would natural teeth: brush, floss, and use mouthwash regularly.
Attending Checkups With Your Dentist
Visit your dentist every six months for a routine checkup. This will allow your dentist to address any concerns before they become serious problems and let you know when it's time to replace your denture.
