Full Dentures in Hiawassee, Georgia


Full dentures are a comprehensive tooth replacement solution for individuals who have lost all or most of their natural teeth. Unlike partial dentures or dental bridges, which replace a few missing teeth, full dentures offer a complete restoration of your smile and bite function.


The process of getting full dentures involves removing any remaining natural teeth, allowing the gums to heal, and then fitting custom-made dentures that replace the entire upper and/or lower dental arches. This sets full dentures apart from other tooth replacement options, which are designed to work around existing natural teeth.


Types of Full Dentures: Choosing the Right Option


At Hiawassee Family Dental, we offer two main types of full dentures:



    • Traditional Full Dentures
      These removable dentures are made from high-quality acrylic and rest on the gums, held in place by suction and adhesives. They are a more affordable option and can be adjusted or replaced as your mouth changes over time.

    • Full Denture Implants
      For a more secure and permanent solution, we recommend full set denture implants or full mouth implant dentures. This advanced option involves surgically placing dental implants into the jawbone, which then serve as anchors for the dentures. Implant-supported full dentures offer superior stability, comfort, and a more natural feel.


While the full denture implants cost is typically higher than traditional dentures, many patients find the investment worthwhile for the improved stability, comfort, and long-term benefits.

Cost of Full Dentures and the Fabrication Process


The cost of full dentures with extractions can vary depending on the type of dentures you choose and any additional procedures required.
