Some patients may have unusual conditions in their mouth or jaw joint (also known as Temporal Mandibular Joint or TMJ) which may require additional extensive measurements to properly fit a set of dentures. In these cases, a precision premium denture would provide the best fit and function in order to enjoy daily life activities like eating, speaking or laughing with confidence.
Precision premium dentures incorporate extensive measurements in your TMJ in order for the denturist to closely duplicate the natural movements of your jaw. Measurements are also used to guide the denturist in placing teeth for the best look and feel of your new dentures.
With proper fitting complete dentures from Westwood Denture Clinic, you can continue to enjoy all of the activities you love without worrying.
Your lifestyle as well as your appearance, comfort, and eating habits are all considerations that will be discussed with you as we explain the denture options available.
Complete dentures (or full dentures) are a matched set that includes upper dentures and lower dentures. Conventional complete dentures are initially put in between three and six weeks after natural teeth have been removed.
(Also see Immediate Dentures.)
Complete Dentures are a matching set of Full Upper and Full Lower dentures that replace all your teeth. There are two types of complete dentures: conventional complete dentures and immediate complete dentures. Conventional Dentures can be fabricated between 3 to 4 appointments.
We offer both standard and precision premium dentures. Premium complete dentures, such as BPS® or Geneva 2000™, may be recommended for patients who have unusual mouth or jaw joint conditions to ensure the best fit and function for daily life activities like eating, speaking and laughing with confidence.

Don't Miss a Day Without Teeth
Conventional dentures can’t be applied to your gums until they’ve healed completely from extractions, which can take 6 to 8 months, depending how you heal. However, with immediate dentures, you can have a upper, lower or complete set of dentures inserted immediately following extractions. To make sure you don’t miss a day without a full smile, we take impressions for your dentures weeks before extractions. By doing this, we can have a beautiful set of immediate dentures ready for you as soon as your extraction is done. After your extractions and the Dentist has inserted your Immediate Dentures, we will provide you with a temporary lining, which will help your gums during the healing period.
At our clinic, our licensed denturist, will make your dentures in-house, meaning she will work with you from initial consultation to fitting and follow up.
