What are Dentures?
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth that are meticulously crafted to match your natural teeth and installed onto an acrylic, gum-like base. The base will rest comfortably on your gums and be held in place by a secure dental adhesive. There are two kinds of dentures:
Full dentures are installed when you need to have your entire row of top or bottom teeth replaced. The base of your dentures will be measured to precisely fit onto your gums without being intrusive or uncomfortable. The result will be a fully functional smile you can be proud of.
If you still have some teeth remaining in your gumline, you can get partial dentures instead of a full arch. These will be made to replace the teeth that are missing and fit comfortably around your existing teeth to fill in the gap. Just like full dentures, partial dentures can improve the functionality and appearance of your smile.
Implant-supported dentures are a method of tooth replacement that will permanently install the dentures into your jawbone. We can strategically place as little as 4 dental implants into your jaw and install the dentures onto the implants. This helps eliminate unwanted movement, slipping, and clicking.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures provide many benefits for your oral health. Without teeth, our facial features start to sag and sink inward, negatively impacting your appearance. The full set of teeth that dentures provide will keep your facial esthetic looking full and youthful. Dentures also help maintain a healthy jawbone and prevent the decay of your gums that sometimes occurs with missing teeth.
