Full, Partial & Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures are removable (or fixed) prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. They are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Full / Complete Dentures
A full denture, also called a complete denture, replaces all of the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. By replacing missing teeth, dentures not only support sagging facial muscles, but also improve a person’s ability to speak and eat. Full dentures are divided into two categories – conventional and immediate – depending on when they are made and inserted into the mouth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are attached securely to dental implants for added comfort and stability. We offer both removable implant-supported dentures that you can easily take out for cleaning, and fixed implant-supported dentures that are even more stable.
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile. It usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by a metal framework, and attaches to your natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments. Precision attachments are nearly invisible, but often require crowns on your natural teeth for a precise fit and generally cost more than those with metal clasps.
Relines and Repairs
We do relines and most repairs right in our office. For more complicated repairs we may send out to a local dental lab to get the quickest and most efficient service.
We recommend using dental implants to stabilize your dentures. The more implants used, the greater the stability. With several implants per arch we can even do away with the upper palate material that covers the roof of the mouth improving the ability to taste food, reduce gag reflex and, for some, improves the ability to speak or sing.
