A full denture can completely replace all of the teeth in your lower and upper jaws. And you can select from a fixed full denture that relies on a set of dental implants for stability in your mouth, or a removable full denture which is simply worn on top of your gums. Regardless of your choice, you will first need to have any of your remaining teeth taken out and then wear a temporary denture to give your mouth a chance to heal. When you have healed, you will return to our dentist for a fitting of your permanent denture.
Partial dentures make it possible to replace only the few teeth you are missing while keeping all of your remaining natural healthy teeth. This denture features a removable bridge-like structure with tiny clasps that attach to the teeth on both sides to hold in your mouth. Every night, you have to take it out for cleaning to make it last.
These dentures are more comfortable and discreet than a traditional denture with its noticeable meal clasps and very firm foundation. Instead, a flexible denture has light, limber clasps and a soft, supple foundation made out of a flesh-colored substance. As a result, it will be impossible to tell that you’re wearing a denture at all.
Just as their name suggests, these dentures are securely supported in your mouth by a set of two or four dental implants. This makes them different than a traditional denture that loosely lays on your gums and is prone to embarrassing slips. An implant-supported denture is typically on used in your bottom jaw since its enhanced security isn’t needed by your upper jaw. Their only similarity to a traditional denture is that nightly removal and cleaning is essential.
The denture creation and placement process is surprisingly rapid and simple. Of course, the precise procedure will vary by whether you need any prior preparation and the type of denture you want. Most of the time, the procedure begins with our taking a set of dental impressions and measurements to create an appliance that perfectly fits your mouth. Afterward, any unhealthy teeth get removed and a temporary denture is provided for you to wear while your permanent dentures are custom-made. The process differs slightly if you have chosen an implant-supported denture because you will get your implants embedded by our dentist at this point. As soon as your permanent denture has been completed, our dentist will place and adjust it for maximum comfort and dental function.
