Types of Dentures
For patients who have experienced significant tooth loss, everyday tasks like eating, speaking and laughing can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Restoring missing teeth is not the only key to improving the aesthetics of your smile but the function as well. Traditional dentures designed by our team can be a cost-effective and comfortable solution for tooth loss. We take high-quality impressions in the comfort of our office and use them as a basis to create your custom restoration. Depending on the location and number of missing teeth, we may recommend a denture or a partial denture to restore your smile.
Partial Denture: This restoration is used to replace missing teeth on either the top or bottom jaw. Partials are considered a unique type of dental bridge that is supported by a metal frame which is then attached to the existing tooth. In many cases, a custom dental crown is placed on the existing tooth for added strength and durability.
Full Denture: For patients who are missing all of their teeth or have had all their teeth extracted, a custom denture can be a viable option for your smile. A traditional denture is made of a gum-colored plastic base that fits comfortably over the gums. Artificial teeth are attached to each base to replicate a natural-looking smile. A traditional denture can restore beauty and balance to your smile, as well as restore chewing function.
While traditional dentures and partials offer commendable results, some patients seek a more durable solution. For patients who qualify, our team may recommend an implant-supported restoration. Rather than relying on the gums for support, an implant-supported restoration relies on strategically placed dental implants for support. Not only does this address issues such as bone loss and difficulties chewing, but it also provides added comfort and stability for patients with missing teeth.
