What Are Dentures?
Detachable or fixed dentures are a tried-and-true option for men and women who need to replace lost teeth. These prosthetic appliances make talking and eating easier and can even renew the appeal of your mouth after tooth loss. Dentist Dr. Asher Henegar is experienced with full and partial removable and implant-supported dentures for individuals in Colorado Springs, CO. Single-arch dentures replace each of the teeth in the upper arch, bottom arch, or both; however, partial dentures are offered when a number of real teeth are still in the jaw. At R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A., our staff can help you decide whether removable or implant-held dentures are right for your needs and have them made custom to provide a pleasant appearance and comfortable fit. Set up your restoration assessment with Dr. Henegar to get started on renewing your beautiful smile.

"I haven't been to the dentist in over five years. It's a lot easier said then done but when you don't have insurance or have the finances it gets pushed back over the years. I would highly recommend Dr. Henegar. The office was clean and modern. The staff all had smiles and were very friendly upon entering the office. I was greeted with a hand shake by the doctor himself. We took x-rays of my teeth and came up with a plan. Dr. Henegar was very friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. It felt good to go to the dentist and not be questioned as to why I haven't been to a dentist in so long.We came up with a step by step plan for future visits and he even recommended ortho to help straightrn my bottom teeth in the future. I couldn't be happier with the affordablility but also with the friendly staff. It is nice to be known and addressed by your name rather then a patient room number. No judgments here."- E.M. / Google / Sep 15, 2021
"Cannot recommend Dr. Henegar enough! I just recently started coming here, and the environment is so relaxing. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. I had to have several fillings done and Dr. Henegar even touched up an old filling that I had as a courtesy. He and his staff are so friendly and caring and make you feel like more than just a dollar walking in the door. As long as I live in the Springs, I’ll be coming back to him!"- M.W. / Google / Sep 15, 2021

What Is the Denture Process?
Ideal candidates for dentures can be any adult who is missing many teeth or needs to have teeth removed. We will begin the restoration process by taking digital impressions of your top and lower arches. These impressions will then be used to craft your customized dentures. Full and bridge dentures utilize lightweight resin, which may be supported by a titanium inner structure. Crafted with high-quality, biocompatible substances, dentures are intended to copy the look of native teeth and gums. Once your dentures are created, Dr. Henegar will alter your restorations so they fit snugly or connect them to the titanium implants. Chewing and speaking may require some getting used to for a little bit, but it will become easier over time. If your dentures seem to be slipping, please reach out to R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A. so our staff can arrange a modification appointment. You should take care of your dentures by cleaning them with a soft brush following every meal and placing them in water nightly to stop them from drying out. Routine exams and cleanings are important so Dr. Henegar can keep track of the condition of your dentures and your general oral wellness.
