Restore your smile and improve your life!
Missing teeth are common. More people than you might think are missing some or even all of the teeth in their mouth. In fact, a recent study estimated that over 40 million people in the US wear dentures. You are not alone.
Whether the result of tooth decay, genetics, or the natural aging process, tooth loss can affect your life. You may find it hard to eat, speak, or smile with confidence. At Chugach Dental in Anchorage, we’re known for providing high-quality, durable, and natural false teeth to our patients.

Chugach Dental is staying on top of modern dental technology to bring you the best care possible.
We invested in a new digital intraoral scanner displays a 3-D rendering of a patient's teeth on a screen immediately after the scan is complete, providing a more impactful dental experience and a better understanding of the condition of their teeth and the recommended treatment plan.
The scanner is more comfortable than traditional approaches. It's quicker, convenient, and creates more accurate scans to get more precise impressions.

How do dentures work?
The biggest difference between dentures and other tooth replacement options is that they are removable. They aren’t permanently fixed in place like a dental implant would be. Because of this, they present a tradeoff:
- Easier to place without long healing times
- May require more frequent adjustments to ensure a proper fit
- Generally a less-expensive option than implant restorations
For many of our patients, full or partial dentures are a great choice. Dr. Adam Jensen can explain your options and help you make the best selection for your health.
Full vs. Partial Dentures
- Full Restorations – Used when all teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing. In some cases, we may recommend extracting teeth to make room for a full denture.
- Partial Restorations – Used when there are still healthy teeth in the jaw. Partial dentures may be recommended to allow you to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible — as long as they’re healthy.
In addition to full and partial dentures, we offer other tooth replacement options like implants and bridges.
Are dentures better than implants or bridges?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Dr. Jensen will examine your teeth and gums, and explain your options. Together you’ll create the best treatment plan for you.
How much do dentures cost?
It depends on what type of restoration we are making. There are a variety of options, depending on how many teeth we are replacing. As a rough estimate, dentures cost between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars.
Can I get my teeth pulled and get dentures the same day?
Yes. In most cases, you can walk out with your finished restorations the day you get your teeth removed.
How long will it take to get used to my new false teeth?
Everyone is different and they do take some getting used to. We’ll work with you to explain what to expect and how to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Chugach Dental has taken my anxiety out of that dreaded dental visit. Finally! I went in as a new patient for a cleaning and my hygienist was both enjoyable and thorough. Dr.Jensen took his time after my cleaning to discuss the health of my teeth and gums, changes I should make to my routine and future dental work that was only deemed necessary. I appreciate a conservative dentist because my dental insurance only covers my cleanings. Dr. Jensen is young and healthy as a health care provider should be. The office is also really clean and modern, no tacky music or outdated artwork. My appointment was easy to book and I even look forward to going back and having him fix a badly chipped tooth. 5 stars for services and the staff I interacted with. Highly recommended!

Dr. Jensen is great. I was nervous to get an issue addressed. He took care of it quickly and the procedure was surprisingly pain free. I continue to see Dr. Jensen for his professionalism and his approach to dentistry that provides what is essential to his patients at a great price.

Dr. Jensen is such a kind dentist, he’s warm and welcoming and he truly cares about his patients. His staff goes above and beyond to make my family feel comfortable. He has also been really good with my 2 year old son, making him feel comfortable and getting him used to the dentist chair since he was 1. He loves going to see Dr. Jensen! The office is modern and you even have a nice view of the mountains while you’re getting your teeth cleaned! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!!
