Types of Dentures
Temporaries ensure that patients have a natural-looking smile while waiting for dental implants or a dental bridge to be completed. This is an excellent solution if a tooth is knocked out during a sports game or accident.
These dentures are secured with a metal wire that works like a retainer and can be taken out whenever you like. Keep in mind that a temporary denture is only meant to be worn for a few months and will need to be replaced.
If only a few of your teeth are missing, partial dentures are your ideal solution. Unlike a full set of dentures, partials are held in place by a plastic base the same color as your gums. We create a metal framework to secure the base and prevent it from falling out.
As long as you have natural teeth in place, you cannot wear a full set, so a partial denture set is necessary. Patients often wonder if partial dentures are better than a cosmetic procedure. The main difference is that while dentures are removable, cosmetic solutions are usually permanent.
When all of your teeth are missing, complete dentures can replace them. These are the type of dentures that you typically see in cartoons and movies. Technology has improved in recent years, making them more comfortable and natural-looking than ever.
If we determine this is the best solution for you, we will first need to extract all your teeth. Following teeth removal, the bones and gums will start to shrink. By waiting for up to 12 weeks, we can be sure your gums have healed and your bone has begun to shrink. Then, we can place your complete set of dentures and make sure they fit safely and comfortably.
This procedure combines the best of implant dentistry with dentures. Those that need complete dentures can benefit by having a secure way to hold their dentures in place. We can begin by examining your gums and letting you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
In this scenario, an impression is taken of your mouth to create a denture that will be secured in place using implants. Once created, metal posts will be implanted under your gums and the dentures attached to them. This way, patients get the benefits of how quickly dentures can be created and the convenience of the stability that can only come from using implant technology.

Using impressions, we can manufacture a set of dentures that looks natural and fits perfectly and comfortably in your mouth. There is no surgical element to worry about, and temporary dentures can be fitted immediately, providing a quick and easy solution.
