Our Methods for Quality
At NuLife Dental we fabricate our dentures two ways, to ensure quality while maintaining affordability.
Cold Pour Process - The industry standard for making quality dentures. We use a pourable acrylic which provides reliability and durability. Our cast partials, Classic Denture, and Choice Dentures are made this way.
Heat Injected Process - State of the Art, advanced method for crafting Dentures. We inject acrylic into a custom-made mold under high pressure and heat. This makes the denture, stronger, denser, and a more accurate fit.
All our dentures are made in office. Our Doctor and Lab technician work hand in hand on each denture to make sure we can bring your ideal smile to reality. Because we make our dentures in office, you will be able to participate in each step of the process giving us your thoughts and choosing what is best for you!
We offer several different options for full dentures and partial dentures. This allows you to choose a smile that fits your personal budget.
If you’re considering removable dentures, you will love the great care you receive with us for your dental needs. The process calls for us to take a mold or impression of your mouth whether you need a complete denture or removable partial denture. This helps us make the perfect denture just for you.
When extractions are needed, you will be fitted for a temporary/healing denture after Dr. Hoover performs the necessary extractions. Once all healing is completed, we will begin the we begin the process again for your permanent dentures.
At NuLife Dental, we offer three different styles of complete dentures with varying price points.

Do I still need to go to the dentist if I have dentures?
Yes, your mouth is always changing, and it is often necessary to have adjustments made to the dentures to maintain the best fit possible. It is important to see your dentist at least once a year to make sure that the gums remain healthy and that any issues are caught early.
How should I care for my dentures?
It is very important to make sure that your dentures are cleaned by brushing with a soft bristle tooth brush and soaking each day. This helps to remove any bacteria that might accumulate through eating and use.
It is also important to allow your mouth and gums to breathe, rest, and relax each day. These steps will make sure that the fit of your dentures remain as comfortable as possible and provide your best dental health.
What’s the difference between dentures and partials?
Dentures or Full dentures replace a complete arch of the mouth (Top or Bottom), it replaces all teeth that are necessary to have a healthy, natural, functioning smile and bite.
A Partial Denture replaces one or more teeth but not all in one arch of the mouth (Top or Bottom). Partials usually use remaining natural teeth to provide a secure fit. Partial dentures replace all teeth that are necessary to have a healthy, natural, functioning smile and bite.
Will my dentures look real and fit correctly?
Modern dentures and partial dentures are designed to look natural and fit your mouth comfortably, and it is our goal to exceed this design promise for each and every patient.
At NuLife Dental, the denture process always begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and aesthetic needs.
Following this, our dentist prepares your gums for removable dentures or implant denture placement. We also take a custom mold of your mouth and rely on the latest technologies to ensure that this mold is accurate before your custom denture is created.
On-Site Denture Lab
At NuLife Dental, we have a denture laboratory inside our Orlando, FL dental practice. This means our dentist is able to supervise the denture or partial denture creation process, and she always keeps close tabs throughout the custom creation, asking for or making adjustments as needed.
Additionally, we offer three different types of full dentures to fit every budget, dentures that may provide unique benefits that are important to you.
Apart from removable dentures, we also offer implant dentures, which are dentures affixed to your jaw with implants for support.

Will people be able to tell that I have dentures or partials?
At NuLife Dental and Med Center our goal is to make a denture to that as natural as possible for each patient. Since we make all our dentures in office, we partner with each patient to customize their denture at our “Try in Step”. At this step the denture teeth are set in wax so that each patient and doctor can work together to get the best look possible.
Why should I get dentures or partial dentures?
When answering a question like this the first thing you should consider is your quality of life. A new denture can help give you a smile that looks good and improve the ability to eat foods you may have had trouble with previously. Sometimes they even help to eliminate the need for things like a root canal or a crown.
When extractions are needed your dentist may recommend replacing these necessary teeth in the form of a removal partial denture. From your very first visit and exam Dr. Hoover will explain all the steps, giving you confidence that you have chosen the right dentist. From our professional office staff to each hygienist and from our dental assistants to our dentist we are staffed by an incredible team with great experience. Whether you need a conventional denture or a complete set of dental implants, our team of dental professionals will give you a beautiful smile.
What if I still have my wisdom teeth?
Many times, your wisdom teeth simply act as "extra teeth". They get used in the same way your other teeth do, but as you know, they can also cause issues in your smile, driving the need for extractions.
In fact, because they come in last and they come in whatever space they have available they don't always come in straight. This can cause shifting of your teeth, problems with or pain in your jawbone, and growth in odd directions can even cause sore spots on your cheeks as you constantly bite them.
Having wisdom teeth doesn't affect whether or not you are a candidate for affordable dentures. The great news is decisions about your wisdom teeth, happen on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes they just give your removable partial denture something to hang on to.
To get the most affordable dentures, it’s always best to make sure you hire the best dentist. Dr. Hoover, uses her education, experience, and expertise to provide a great experience for every dental procedure. Her experience allows her to provide you the best solution while still making them affordable dentures.
No matter what, we work to ensure your smile stays both happy and healthy.

How do I care for my dentures or partial dentures?
- You should remove and rinse your dentures after eating. To remove bits of food and other loose particles, clean your dentures under running water. Pro-tip: You don't want your dentures to break so you might want to place a towel on the counter or fill the sink with some water to prevent damage from dropping.
- Treat your dentures with great care. Be sure not to bend or damage any of the plastic or the metal clasps while cleaning.
- After removing your dentures, you should clean your mouth. A soft-bristled toothbrush should be used on natural teeth and either gauze or a soft toothbrush to clean your tongue, cheeks and roof of your mouth (palate). IF denture adhesive is part of your normal denture use, remove any remaining from your gums.
- No excuses, brush your dentures daily. Your dentures need to be removed and gently cleaned every day. They should be soaked and brushed using a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive denture cleaner to remove plaque, food and other deposits. Again, if denture adhesive is part of your routine, clean the grooves that fit against your gums. You need to remove any remaining adhesive. Pro-tip: Never use denture cleansers inside your mouth.
- Soak dentures overnight. It is important to keep most types of dentures moist so they keep their shape. Make sure to place the dentures in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight. Check with your dentist about properly storing your dentures overnight. Just be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions on cleaning and soaking solutions.
- Dentures need to be rinsed thoroughly prior to being put back in your mouth. This cannot be stressed enough if you are using a storing solution. Pro-tip: These solutions can contain harmful chemicals that cause vomiting, pain or burns if swallowed.
- Make sure you schedule dental checkups, regularly. Regular visits ensure that your dentures have the best fit possible to prevent discomfort, slippage, and make sure you oral health is receiving excellent care. Dr. Hoover will recommend how often to visit to have your dentures examined and professionally cleaned.
- A loose fit is never good, visit us quickly. A prompt visit to us is the quickest way to your best experience. When your dentures become loose they can cause irritation, sores and infection.
You typically should avoid:
- Hot water. Believe it or not hot or boiling water can warp your dentures.
- Whitening toothpastes. Typically, toothpastes that are advertised as a "whitening paste" often contains peroxide. Unfortunately those don't do very much to change the color of "denture teeth".
- Abrasive cleaning materials. Brushes with stiff bristles, cleansers that are too strong and harsh toothpaste can damage your dentures. This allows for increased opportunity for stains in the future.
- Products with bleach. If you use products with bleach it can damage the structural integrity of the dentures, not to mention that they will change the color of the dentures. If you soak dentures with metal attachments or clasp in any kind of a solution that contain chlorine, it can tarnish the metal framework or lead to corrosion.
When should I replace my dentures?
A set of quality dentures can last up to 10 years, if they are very well maintained and you practice good oral hygiene. However, 10 years is a long time and let's face it, life happens to everyone.
Normal wear and tear, accidents, like your dental appliance getting dropped, and sometimes dental injuries can happen causing issues with your dentures. There's simply a lot that can happen in 10 years. All of these can lead to numerous issues for denture wearers.
The point is eventually, you will need to visit the dentist office to have it replaced. Below are a few telltale signs that you need may need to get new dentures.
1. Fit of the denture is wrong.
When a denture doesn't fit right it comes lose more often, even while properly using dental adhesives or creams.
While normal wear and tear on your denture can lead to a change in fit, other things may be the cause as well. For instance, elements of the patient's mouth itself can cause a wrong fit.
Over time you may experience a loss of density in the soft tissues like your gum tissue or even in the jawbone itself. Bone loss in the jaw is possible both as we age (typically the lower jaw) and as a result of gum disease from poor oral hygiene. In the case of the latter, bone loss can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene.
Regardless of the circumstances, adjustments and replacement can provide a better fit.
2. Biting and chewing causes pain.
Pain while biting or chewing is a problem. When you experience this issue, it's time for a dental visit. This pain can cause or be caused by sores on the gums, gum ridges, or cheeks. Any type of swelling or discomfort during normal use, is a sign you may need a dentist.
3. Sores have formed on your gums.
Sores or your gums or on the oral tissues on the sides of your mouth, may be a response to changes in the way your denture fits. If you have a partial denture it may even cause issues with nearby teeth. If any irritation develops, visit the dental professionals at NuLife Dental and we will provide you the best experience and affordable care.
4. Dentures have become damaged.
Repair is needed if the denture has been damaged in any way. Any form of chip or crack is never good news. A denture that has been severely fractured will typically require a new denture replacement.
5. You have issues with speech.
Dentures that are loose or simply don't fit well, can slip out of their proper place, causing a less than pleasant experience. They can also cause speech impediments. Common impediments like slurred speech or a lisp are a typica
