What are Dentures?
A denture is a dental prosthetic designed to replace teeth. It’s made up of an acrylic, gum-colored base and porcelain teeth, which are fabricated in a dental lab. We only use the highest quality materials possible when creating your denture, ensuring that the most lifelike and comfortable restoration is made. Upon creation of your denture, you’ll get a chance to have it fitted by one of our dentists. If it doesn’t feel right, we’ll make adjustments and do everything possible to make sure your happy with your restoration.
Full vs. Partial Dentures
A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch at a time and uses the natural suction of the gums to stay in place. Keep in mind that the full denture is fully customized to fit your mouth exactly. It’s considered to be a quick and affordable way to replace many teeth at a time while still ensuring optimal function and comfort.
Partial dentures are designed to replace a handful of missing consecutive teeth. While they look similar to a full denture, partials use a metal-support structure that’s covered by the gum-colored acrylic. They are also held in place with small metal clasps that loop around teeth nearby.
If your traditional denture doesn’t fit your needs and you’re looking for something more stable, an implant-retained denture just might be up your alley. Instead of relying on natural suction or metal clasps, your denture snaps onto several dental implants strategically placed throughout your mouth. The good news is you only need anywhere from four to six implants to replace an entire arch. Overall, implant-retained dentures offer a more stable fit, a stronger biting force and greater improvements in speaking and chewing.
