Temporary Teeth for a Lifetime of Smiles
Dentures are removable dental appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all or most of your natural teeth, whether, from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, complete dentures can help you smile, speak, and eat again with confidence. Additionally, dentures can help you support your cheeks and lips to ensure the structurality of your face.
Replacement teeth are made from impressions taken of the mouth to ensure that it is the perfect fit for YOU. The set is then fabricated from either plastic, porcelain, or a combination of both.
Types of Dentures
There are many types of denture options, including immediate dentures, implant-retained dentures, ball attachment dentures, bar attachment dentures, and more! Each of these dentures has a specific purpose and we are going to go over what each denture is needed for.
If you want to avoid the embarrassment of missing teeth, immediate dentures may be just what you are looking for. With immediate dentures, you can begin the denture process before your teeth are extracted. Give us a call today if you are considering immediate dentures!
Implant-retained dentures are a good option if you are missing just your bottom teeth. This type of denture allows enough room for your tongue so you can continue speaking and eating properly. (It’s so realistic you may even forget that you have a denture in!)
Ball Attachment Denture
This type of denture requires two implants in the lower jaw, and it is used when all of your teeth are missing or extracted from the bottom jaw. This denture is set to help you eat comfortably again and give your face structure.
Bar Attachment Denture
This type of denture requires 4-6 implants and uses a dental bridge to give the same functionality and usability as normal teeth would. This type of treatment has one of the fastest healing times and is a cost-effective solution to missing teeth.
The screw-retained denture requires 5+ implants in the jaw bone to create this permanent denture. Our doctor will then create an exact denture fit for your gums to enable you to gain full functionality of your “new teeth”.
