Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue; they can also dramatically improve facial features and fill-out a face that has a "sunken" look.  There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth - either on the upper arch or lower arch - are missing.  The replacement teeth are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and are placed in an acrylic base which is a custom fit to your own arch.

Partial dentures are used when there are some stable teeth remaining for support.  The replacement teeth are set into a metal framework or acrylic base which rests on the gums with clasps that attach to remaining teeth.  A partial denture is almost always more stable than a full denture because the clasps provide anchorage for the partial denture.

A recent development in dentures is the implant-supported overdenture.  In this scenario, two or more implants are placed into the supporting bone.  The denture then snaps onto the implants.  This treatment is particularly helpful for difficult lower denture cases.

The process of getting dentures requires a series of "try-in" appointments to ensure proper shape, color, and fit.  The completed denture may also have to be adjusted a number of times to ensure a natural and confortable fit.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years with proper care.
