Dentures are a convenient and affordable option for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they benefit your appearance, but they also make it easier to eat and speak. They also support the facial muscles and prevent sagging. They are fitted into a plastic base, which is made to closely match the color of your gums. If you still have some natural teeth, they will be removed before your dentures are placed.
Types of Dentures
Depending on your unique needs, our dentists will recommend one of the following denture types:
Conventional Complete Dentures
A conventional complete denture is placed in your mouth after the teeth are taken out and the gums have completely healed.
Implant-Supported Complete Dentures
A complete denture provides a more secure fit by being anchored to the dental implants. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Properly placed implants make the denture secure and can help reduce bone loss.
Some patients may have the option to get an immediate denture. They are made before the remaining teeth are removed. With this type of denture, the patient does not have to go without teeth during the healing time. Once healing is complete, the dentures may need to be adjusted.
A partial denture is a great solution for missing teeth. A partial denture rests on a metal structure that is attached to your natural teeth. We offer fixed or removable partial dentures.
