In our standard day-to-day practice, our goal is to preserve oral health and natural tooth structure. We accomplish this by first looking to the most conservative restorative methods available in each unique situation. In some cases, the most suitable treatment for the restoration of function and aesthetics is to create a custom denture device fitted to the patient's jawbone structure.
Dentures have long been used when one has lost or had all teeth removed. A very common treatment, the denture appliance comes in two types - partial and complete. There are three types of complete dentures. The economy denture, cheap, the traditional denture, the one taught in dental school, and now the Strickland Facelift Dentures™
. Using the Strickland Facelift Dentures™
technique the dentures we are able to create are far more natural in appearance than dentures of the past. Thanks to our understanding of the advances in technology, esthetics, and bite the Strickland Facelift Dentures™
is the most natural and functional denture being created today.

The Strickland Facelift Dentures™
technique creates dentures that are comfortable to wear, to chew with, and we place a high priority on the aesthetics that best serve the patient. Consequently, the patient is included in the design process to help Dr. Hellickson determine his or her desired shades for artificial teeth and gums.
We begin the process with a comprehensive consultation to determine what is most suitable. If teeth are present and cannot be saved, then extractions are scheduled. An impression is taken to begin the construction of a temporary denture to be worn while the gums heal from the extraction procedure. Once the gums have healed, the Strickland Facelift Dentures™
processes begins. If no teeth are present, and the patient has dentures that are not acceptable, then the Strickland Facelift Dentures™
process can begin and will be finished in about three to four weeks.
It is important to maintain optimal oral hygiene through daily brushing of dentures and gums. Regular visits should occur as the structure of the jawbone may change over time, and this may lead to the realignment of the appliance to facilitate sustained function and comfort.
Although dental implants are now available for the permanent replacement of missing teeth, the denture appliance is suitable for a great many patients, and provides an excellent restoration. Through the thoughtful design and construction processes, Strickland Facelift Dentures™
can restore function and positively affect the contours of the face, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
