For patients who have lost some or all their teeth, dentures may be a recommended option to help them maintain their oral health. These custom-designed and gum-colored prosthetic appliances rest securely on your top or bottom dental ridges. We offer three types of denture treatments: full, partial, and implant-supported.
Full and Partial Dentures
Full dentures are exactly what they sound like. They are a complete set of teeth that span your top or bottom (or both) dental ridges. On the other hand, partial dentures are designed to accommodate the teeth that remain. Both types are durable and constructed from dental porcelain, making them appear as natural teeth. We may also suggest supporting dentures on a series of dental implants, which serve as replacements for roots when a tooth is lost.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
While full and partial dentures may restore your ability to bite and chew, speak clearly, and smile with confidence, their abilities are limited. They can only replace the dental crowns (the top parts) of your lost teeth. Securing dentures on dental implants offers several benefits, such as
- Easier maintenance
- Improved long-term oral health
- Improved stability
- Reduced risk of denture movement on the dental ridge
