Dentures are a great choice if you need a replacement for missing teeth. Dentures can restore the appearance of your smile and make it easier to eat and speak with full confidence. General dentist Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Gainesville, GA. Full dentures replace all the teeth in your lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that leave some of your natural teeth to act as support. At Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D., we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures are best for your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look natural. Make an appointment with Dr. Toms to get more information about dentures.
"Big Baby here! Moved from NV and went in to see Dr Toms based on his excellent reviews. He not only was able to do what I wanted..(previous dentist said it couldnt be done) which was a huge self esteem boost, but also caters to extreme anxiety/pain babies like me. Now, I actually get excited to go to the dentist!!! His staff is so sweet and accomodating! Dr Toms, you are my new hero!!!"- T.C. / Google / Nov 10, 2022

"Dr. Toms must have been at the top of his class b/c not only is his work perfect (and as painless as one can expect dentistry to be), but he works fast! In my early 20s I did not take care of my teeth as I should've and ended up needing several root canals (hard lesson learned!). I went to several other dentist before finding Dr. Toms and what took other dentists 3-4 HOURS to perform, he manages to finish within 45 min. Even when he was out of network for me, I always went to Dr. Toms. The only reason I don't still, is that I left Georgia. It should also be mentioned that his staff is top notch. Always friendly and helpful. They have always exceeded my customer service expectations. Someone else mentioned they've been seeing Dr. Toms for 20 years, and I was like, he can't possibly have been in business that long, he's not that old! And then I realized my 18 year old son has never seen another dentist, so.... yeah."- T.V. / Google / Aug 02, 2022
You could be an ideal candidate for dentures if you have suffered the loss of many teeth, but still have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. During your consultation with Dr. Toms, he will assess your mouth and discuss your choices to fit your needs and budget.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Toms will perform an extraction on any teeth before impressions are taken, which will help make your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be shaded to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive appearance. As soon as your dentures are crafted, Dr. Toms will adjust the fit so they are comfortable and secure. He will also go over the best way to clean and care for your new dentures.
