TCS Removable Dentures may be an ideal choice for you.

Ask Your Dentist For TCS by Name

Partial dentures fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and help prevent your natural teeth from shifting. You will be happy to hear that a well-fitted partial denture can provide wonderful aesthetic and functionality. TCS flexible partials are usually fabricated without unsightly metal clasps that will compromise your smile. 

  • TCS flexible partials offer an ideal degree of flexibility which allows the partial(s) to flex with the natural contours of the mouth for maximum comfort.
  • TCS offers two base materials for flexible partial dentures: iFlex™ and Unbreakable™. 

Full dentures replace all missing teeth of either the upper arch, lower arch, or both. Full dentures function between the muscle forces of the lips, cheeks and tongue. Wearing a well-fitted denture is not only essential to your health, it will also rejuvenate your appearance.

  • Karadent™ is a technologically advanced resin used for the fabrication of full dentures. 

Important Facts

  • TCS is for Everyone

    Contrary to popular belief, dentures are not merely for elderly patients. Patients of any age may lose some or all of their teeth and need an affordable, aesthetic solution. You may be surprised at the number of people under the age of 35 that wear dentures as a permanent solution.
  • Emotional Impact

    Tooth loss can have an emotional impact on patients. Patients may feel negatively towards their mouth's functional ability and appearance. If you are experiencing physical or psychological emotions surrounding tooth loss, please consult your dentist and see if TCS is the solution for you.
  • Oral Hygiene

    Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is vital to caring for your appliance and oral health. Aside from regular dental checkups and brushing, daily appliance cleaning is necessary. Soaking and brushing your dentures with an effective, non-abrasive denture cleanser reduces levels or biofilm and potentially harmful bacteria and fungi.
  • TCS Resins

    Ill fitting dentures can slip and move around causing discomfort and embarrassment. TCS resins are processed using high pressure injection for a precise fit. TCS resins are monomer-free, making them an ideal choice for patients with sensitivity to traditional acrylic dentures.

Benefits of TCS Appliances

Lightweight and Comfortable.

TCS resins have properties that allow partials to be fabricated very thin without compromising durability, making them very flexible and comfortable for every day use. 

Aesthetic. Undetectable in the mouth.

TCS restorations are manufactured to blend naturally with a patients surrounding tissue and gums. A well designed and fabricated TCS appliance is unnoticeable in a patient's mouth.

BPA & Monomer Free.

TCS restorations are biocompatible and ideal for patients that are allergic to monomer found in acrylic dentures.

Non-invasive.

Unlike permanent tooth replacement options such as, crown/bridge and implants, TCS partials are non-invasive, making them ideal for patients with a low threshold for pain and/or for the elderly. The unique characteristics of TCS partials utilize the tissue undercuts and portions of abutment teeth for retention. 

Durable.

TCS restorations can last a lifetime. Their unique characteristics allow for a break resistant and highly durable restoration. Natural changes in the mouth may require changes to the restoration. Eg. tooth addition.

"Because of gum disease I lost a few key teeth. Looked at implants but cost for just 3 would have been about $15,000 with crowns. My dentist introduced me to the TCS flexible partial at less than 20% cost of the implant. Had a few issues with the fit but now we've got it to where I hardly know it's there. It sits well in my mouth; stays in place when I eat and has made my life more normal again".
