Losing your teeth can lead to a lot of frustrations in a variety of aspects of your life beyond just your physical appearance, but a lot of people don’t realize that it can actually lead to a decrease in overall health because you won’t be able to eat difficult-to-chew but healthy foods. If you’d like to get a set of dentures that will improve your oral function dramatically, call Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD at 256-274-8680 to be fitted for quality dentures!
At our Decatur, AL dentist office, we know and appreciate that every patient has unique needs and goals when it comes to replacing their teeth. To accommodate your specific case, we offer a variety of denture options, including fulls and partials. We can also attach them to dental implants for a very strong hold if you’d like.
Whether you need to replace a handful of adjacent teeth or you want to get upper and lower full-arch replacements for a full-mouth reconstruction, we can help you!
Don’t put off getting the restorative services you need. We accept many forms of payment so you can cover the cost of your care in the way that makes the most financial sense for you. We even accept third-party financing from CareCredit and Lending Club.
We also don’t want your busy schedule to stand between you and the tooth replacements you need. To make booking a little easier for you, our office is open:

- Extra early at 7:00 a.m. on Thursdays

Get Dentures That Work Great So You Can Eat Healthier
Sometimes, when someone has replacement teeth, they don’t even realize how much their diet has changed. Frequently people with traditional dentures that use suction and a special adhesive to stay in place have a bad experience with their teeth feeling loose or even coming loose with a particular food and then, consciously or not, just try to avoid that food and many like it.
But if your replacement teeth are precisely designed and made and you follow the proper guidelines for cleaning and wearing them, you shouldn’t have any problems with them slipping or coming loose. We’ll discuss how to care for your replacement teeth with you when you get them from us.
While some people feel the most disappointed about not being able to eat a juicy steak or some other food because they’re worried about their false teeth coming loose, there are other concerns beyond the pleasure of a tasty dish.
Because raw vegetables and fruits and other highly nutritious foods can be difficult to chew, many people eat even less of them once they lose their teeth. But eating a balanced diet is just as important when you’ve lost your teeth as it is at any other stage in life as you’d likely assume.
Even if you do eat these vitamin-rich foods, if you have a good deal of difficulty chewing them, you may not chew them up as much as you should. This may not sound like that big of a deal, but if your foods aren’t digested properly, you could be missing out on some of the health benefits or even cause some problems.
To ensure that you’ll be able to regain the majority of your chewing power and get the closest thing as possible to the oral function you once had, we will make your tooth replacements to exacting specifications and verify that the fit is as ideal as possible. We won’t just give you a restorative treatment and send you on your way without speaking with you about it and checking to make sure you’re satisfied.
We’d also be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about your new teeth so please don’t hesitate to ask. We can even discuss some dietary recommendations that we may have for you after speaking with you some. We’ll do our best to provide the most pleasant experience as possible.
Just because you’ve lost many or even all of your teeth doesn’t mean you’ve lost all your dietary freedom – call Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD at 256-274-8680 to book an appointment to get dentures today! You can also swing by our easy-to-find Decatur, AL dentist office in person when we’re open for business or fill out our convenient online form if you want to book or ask questions.
