If you have lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older.
There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed for a period of several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. Our dentists make measurements and models of the patient’s jaws during preliminary visits. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. Additionally, many of our denture patients have discovered the benefits of a dental implant-retained complete denture for optimal comfort & confidence with their denture.
Partial Dentures (or “Partials”)
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected to a metal framework. Removable partial dentures most often attach to your natural teeth or dental implants for support. Additionally, crowns or “caps” on some of your natural teeth may be necessary to ensure a comfortable and stable long-term fit in your mouth. Many of our partial denture patients have utilized dental implants to provide added support, comfort and confidence with their prosthesis.
