DENTURES (WITH AND WITHOUT IMPLANTS)services-dentures1

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, 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 will even improve your smile!

Complete Dentures – This method is used to restore your smile and function if all your teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth and are positioned into a patients mouth to take the place of where the natural teeth used to be. Complete dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.

Partial Dentures – A removable partial denture is a device 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.

Denture Implants – Implants are frequently used in conjunction with complete and partial dentures. Supporting dentures with implants greatly increases stability and retention. This is a very popular option because it eliminates those potentially embarrassing or uncomfortable situations where a denture may dislodge when eating or speaking.

Mini Dental Implants are a more economical option if implants are desired. They are placed in our office and the denture can usually be fitted that day for immediate stability.

If you or a loved one is having problems with dentures fitting properly, please ask us for more information about implant options.
