“I can't say enough good things about my experience at Tomalty Dental. It is obvious that they truly care about their patient experience.
I had my first cleaning and, unfortunately, filling this week. It was so easy to book an appointment. They work late and even on Saturdays which is HUGE for professionals who can't take off work during business hours.
The office is brand new with state of the art equipment and facilities and the staff is super friendly. My cleaning with Andrea was great- quick and very thorough. Dr. Sean Tomalty was fantastic-- very nice and professional. He explained everything he was doing and took time to review all of my x-rays with me. I always like to know what's going on, so that was a big plus in my book.
My tolerance for pain is pretty low, but I had absolutely no discomfort whatsoever during my filling. Dr. Sean used a different numbing method that doesn't involve any painful needle pricks. The numbness wore off in less than an hour, so I was able to go right back to work.
Overall, a 5 star experience in every way. I will definitely recommend Tomalty Dental to anyone and everyone!“

Partial Dentures and Complete Dentures
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, including partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile!
This restoration method is used to restore your smile and mouth function if all your teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth and are positioned to take the place of natural teeth. Complete dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
A removable partial denture is a prosthesis that is used when one or more natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. They usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base which is held in place in the mouth by the remaining teeth. A fixed partial denture acts the same as a removable denture, but it is cemented into place using adjacent teeth for support. A fixed partial denture is permanent while a removable partial denture must be removed at nighttime.
New dentures may feel awkward or loose for the first few weeks until the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place and you are comfortable eating and speaking. Although this may require some practice, you will adjust and enjoy the benefits a full mouth of teeth can provide.
