Before After

Dentures are beneficial for those clients who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. Dentures may restore your confidence and allow you to smile freely.

“My goal is to create a beautiful set of teeth which feels great,” says Dr. Rutledge. “All too frequently, artistic technique and attention to detail are overlooked.  Custom Branching Technique Dentures are crafted with meticulous attention to aesthetics and comfort.”

What makes our dentures and partial dentures unique:

Dr. Rutledge allows ample time for planning with his patients.  Many factors are taken into consideration. Facial features, skin tones and eye color, age, and patient preferences are all important influences on the final product.  Dr. Rutledge insists upon making dentures that look natural, as well as function correctly.

“I use a branching technique,” says Dr. Rutledge.  “It provides a patient with a diagnostic, ‘trial’ denture.   We work with the ‘trial’ denture until it feels comfortable, looks right, and until the patient is chewing comfortably.  It serves as a blueprint for the final denture, so that it is exactly the way the patient wants it. This technique gives the patient a lot of control in terms of comfort and looks before going to the final denture.”

Dr. Rutledge’s desire is to help people look better, feel better, and achieve a healthy lifestyle.  He has a thorough understanding of all aspects of crafting a denture, and matches his expertise with the hopes and desires of his patients.  He intends for his Custom Branching Technique Dentures to completely satisfy each and every patient. “I find that my highest reward in dentistry is patient satisfaction,” says Dr. Rutledge.  “The result of good dentures is a confident smile!”
