The most common question asked by someone calling about dentures is, how much do they cost? It always surprises me that this is all they want to know. You can find denture clinics that offer cheap dentures; some even boast same day service. However, how good can they be?
Dr. Holsen believes dentures are an important part of your oral health and contribute greatly to your overall well-being. Our dentures, whether they are conventional dentures, immediate dentures, implant dentures, or partial dentures are made to serve each individual patient for years to come.
Dr. Holsen has an on-site lab staffed by experienced lab technicians. The lab techs work side by side with Dr. Holsen and the patient during the process. Dr. Holsen is involved in your case from start to follow-up. All of our dentures/implants/partials are personalized by our patients and customized by our lab techs.

Ball Attachment Dentures
Your oral health is dependent on the health and status of your teeth. Missing teeth create a domino effect of shifting your jaw alignment, creating problems with your speech, atrophy occurring with your bone, and gum tissue and the inability to eat foods that you once enjoyed. Dental Care on East Main can replace your teeth using implant retained dentures.
There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base.
The simplest option for implant retained dentures when all of the lower teeth are missing is the ball attachment denture. This system is the placement of two dental implants in your lower jaw that allows you to snap the denture into place. This option is considerably more comfortable than loose dentures and provides a lot of stability. The stability and functionality of the ball attachment denture give patients approximately 60% of what they had with their natural teeth, opposed to 10% of the functionality of loose dentures.
Benefits of Ball Attachment Dentures
- Higher initial retention compared to other systems
- Easy to clean
- Replacement components identical so easy to replace in case of failure

Implant Retained Dentures
When you have lost your natural teeth, a variety of complications can arise that impact your physical and emotional health. You may find it difficult to speak clearly or chew your favorite foods. You may be embarrassed and try to hide your smile from others. You may also experience shifting among your remaining teeth, causing additional discomfort in your mouth and jaw. Implant retained dentures offer a solution that provides comfort and relief. They can replace both upper and lower teeth, giving you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable but also more convenient than traditional dentures.Read more about Implant Retained Dentures

When you have lost your natural teeth, a variety of complications can arise that impact your physical and emotional health – beyond just your smile. Dentures are an important part of restoring your smile’s appearance, but they can pose challenges for some. Implant retained dentures offer you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable but also more convenient than traditional dentures.
Screw-retained dentures are among the most permanent teeth-replacement options for those needing a full set of lower dentures. Screw-retained dentures are also called fixed dentures, permanent dentures or All-on-4. This type of implant-supported denture uses four or more implants in your lower jaw. The complete set of dentures is affixed to these anchors with screws, meaning they are exceptionally secure – they also do not need to be removed for daily cleaning. Instead, you will be able to clean around and under the teeth and along your gums. This cleaning is more challenging for some, but this option provides a more permanent solution for patients with extensive tooth loss.
At Dental Care on East Main, we have many options to replace missing teeth. Call us at 864-859-4111 to schedule a consultation.

Many people have questions regarding which treatment is best for them—implants, traditional dentures, partials, or immediate dentures. For these people we recommend a consult appointment. The nominal fee is waived if impressions are started the same day, but if you aren't sure and continue to have questions there is never a charge for a follow-up consult. We want to make sure you understand your treatment.
Dr. Holsen has given up asking his patients, "How do people like your dentures?" because the answer is always the same: "No one knows I have them."
Since 1991 we have strived to serve our patients. We have offered quality and affordable dentures, implants and partials. Dr. Holsen keeps current on the latest techniques but continues to maintain what has worked the best for his patients; individualized care.
