Dentistry with heart


Conventionally, dentures are used to replace teeth lost or extracted due to disease or age. They most often consist of plastic resin or porcelain teeth embedded in a plastic resin base designed to look like gums and oral tissues. They are specially constructed to fit over the patient’s existing jawbones. Dentures can be partial or full, removable or permanent.

Eltek Dental has an in-house denturist who specializes in the creation and fitting of removable dentures. We can see you through the process from start to finish and provide you with all the information you need to properly maintain your dentures and oral health.

Patient Education:


An RPD or removable partial denture, is partial because the patient retains a certain number of functional teeth around which the denture fits. It is removable because it can be taken out and put back in without professional help.

Removable partial dentures

Removable partial dentures are used where there are a number of teeth missing from the dental arch.

“I was so afraid of needing dentures, but Dr. Aptekar and Dr. Istzer made it easy and painless. My new teeth fit great, look great, and nobody even knows they are dentures. I feel like a new woman!”
