Dentures allow you to replace your missing teeth and regain your dental function, beauty, and confidence. These specially-made dental appliances consist of artificial teeth secured to a removable frame or a permanent dental implant. They can last for over a decade with proper care, so you should consider them if you’re looking for a better smile that lasts for years.
Dentures are no longer one type for all and there are now several varieties based on your personal preferences and dental needs. Our dentist will perform a complete evaluation to determine your denture options and will help you select the best variety for your smile.
Full dentures are sometimes called complete dentures for the way they replace a complete set of teeth in your bottom or upper jaw. With a full denture, your remaining teeth will be extracted and a temporary denture will be immediately supplied. After a few months of healing, you will be fit with your permanent denture which can be either a removable one that rests on your gums, or a fixed full denture that relies on dental implants as anchors.
Partial dentures get their name because they let you preserve your healthy teeth, yet still replace any teeth you’ve lost with a bridge-like framework. These are permanently secured to surrounding teeth like bridges, but only connect to the adjacent teeth with clasps. Their removable nature allows you to take them out and clean them every night.
If you don’t want the bright metal clasps and very rigid base of a traditional partial denture, then you should consider this version. This denture is formed out of a very light, bendable substance for maximum dental comfort. And, its softer clasps and base match the color of your gums, so the fact that you’re wearing dentures will remain your little secret.
If you prefer the greater ease of fixed dentures with more chewing power, then this type of denture may be the right choice for you. It involves an advanced implant technique that provides a full set of replacement teeth with only four dental implants in the bottom jaw.
Your personal denture procedure will be determined by your overall dental health and the denture you choose to get. The usual process begins with your dentist measuring your mouth and making a dental impression to make sure the denture fits well. Afterward, any unhealthy teeth get removed and you are given a temporary denture to wear until the final denture is made. Yet if you get implant-supported denture, your dental implants will be embedded at this time instead.
As soon as your full or partial denture is produced, our dentist will place the denture and adjust it for your comfort.
