Dentures are mounted or removable, partial or full, and implant supported!
Denture appliance replaces multiple missing teeth. Mounted dentures need implants, whereas removable dentures usually have no need for implants, but could be used for attachment.
Full Dentures for the toothless Patient
(Missing All Teeth in Either the higher or Lower Arch)
Traditional dentures are a full length denture that are removable, and don’t use implants. These dentures use an acrylic base that’s custom-built within our office labs to mimic looks of natural gums. The base sits over the gums, holding the dentures in place.
Full dentures give you back the entire row of teeth you are missing. We can use a paste or adhesive to assist in holding the dental appliance in place. We recommend that while the dentures are removed they are washed and kept clean for longevity.
Partial Dentures for Missing Multiple Teeth in One Arch
A partial denture plate is a great removeable answer for partial teeth loss. An acrylic base will contain some metal attachments that wrap around the existing teeth for accessorial support. These appliances may also be hooked up to crowns on either side of the denture. As well we recommend that the removable partial dentures be washed and kept clean.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implants are anchored to the dentures to keep them in place. This allows for a smaller base and less shifting of the dentures while in use. Implants can support both full and partial dentures, as well as mounted and removable dentures.
