A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Made of resin, complete dentures are used to replace all the teeth. When some healthy teeth remain, a partial denture can be used. A partial denture also keeps the remaining healthy teeth from shifting positions in the mouth.

Full and partial dentures improve chewing ability and speech, and support facial muscles. Dentures also enhance appearance.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Avery since 1981. Dr. Avery and I have known each other a long time: we were high school associates in the same organization at our respective high schools. However, we chose Dr. Avery when I returned from active duty in the Army and Sue and Jim Baker – my in-laws and patients of Dr. Avery – recommended him. I needed several crowns because my fillings were deteriorating and I was experiencing some pain. In addition, my broken front two teeth had always been a cosmetic problem until Dr. Avery repaired them. I had great confidence in the outcome since I knew that Dr. Avery had instructed on crowns in medical school. Fixing those teeth was like getting a new lease on life!

Everyone in this office is caring and friendly and they always treat us like their own family. They have always gone out of their way to help us when we had special, unscheduled needs. Lisa is an exceptional hygienist as well. Our experience with Dr. Avery and Meadows’ office has always been first class – including the professionalism of their schedulers, receptionists, and bookkeepers. I would recommend his office to everyone! Just last week, I recommended that my boss go straight to Dr. Avery’s office and get his crown difficulties resolved.
