Denture options explained
Advances in dental techniques and materials have truly transformed how we can restore our patients’ smiles with dentures. Gone are the days of ill-fitting, fake-looking dentures! We work with you to craft a natural-looking smile that feels and functions as great as it looks, with several different options that are tailored to your specific needs:
- Partial dentures are used to replace one or multiple teeth in a dental arch and are typically held in place with metal clips that attach the denture to your existing teeth.
- Complete dentures replace all teeth in a dental arch and are held in place with natural suction; denture adhesives can be used to improve stability.
- Immediate dentures (either partial or complete) are convenient for patients who do not want to go any length of time without teeth. They are created in advance of dental extractions based on impressions of your mouth and then placed on the day your dental extractions occur. Because the mouth undergoes physical changes as it heals from the extractions, relining or replacing the denture is necessary after the recovery process is complete.
- Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients interested in enhancing the stability and comfort of their dentures. Four to eight implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, after which they fuse with the bone through a process known as osseointegration to provide a robust and supportive foundation for the denture. Dental implants also have the added benefit of preserving your jawbone, which in turn supports your facial structure and prevents a “hollowed out” appearance in your cheeks.
