Dentures can be fixed or removable, partial or full, and implant supported or not.
Even if you have not lost all the teeth within an arch, you can still enjoy the benefits of dentures while filling in spaces from missing teeth in your mouth. Partial dentures are a great option for patients who have suffered from significant tooth loss.
Full dentures are crafted to help patients enjoy day to day activities, even if they’ve lost all of their natural teeth from either decay or accident. Traditional full dentures are easy to wear and have beautiful, individually crafted, natural looking teeth. We make sure our dentures provide our patients with perfect occlusion and a reason to smile again.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures offer a unique implant solution for patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth by placing 4 to 6 implants as “anchors” to provide a sturdier fit and minimal mobility for your denture. No adhesives and pastes are needed to secure your new denture, so you can remain confident while eating food and functioning normally.
Available as either fixed or removable, overdentures offer an effective solution for people who are missing many teeth and also have sufficient bone to support dental implants. Overdentures require the placement of two or more dental implants to secure the dentures in the mouth.With implant supported dentures, there is no plate covering the roof of the mouth, so speaking and eating are more natural and comfortable than with traditional dentures.
Removable dentures will “snap” on to the implant rather than requiring the use of denture paste or adhesives and can be taken out for cleaning at night.
Fixed implant supported dentures are not removed at night and are cared for like natural teeth. A fixed overdenture is only removed during your dental visits to be inspected and cleaned.
