Full and Partial Dentures

Modern dentures offer outstanding aesthetics and function, and they aren't the same as the dentures of decades past. If you are missing teeth, it's never too late to restore a full smile.

Dentures that replace all the teeth are known as complete dentures They rest right on your gums over the bones of your mouth. The stability and retention of these dentures can be improved by attaching them to dental implants. Dentures that replace some but not all of the teeth are called partial dentures. They attach to the teeth that are still present and also cover and rest on the gums and bone where the teeth are missing.

Are you a good candidate for Dentures?

If you wish to replace several or all of your teeth, you might be a good candidate for dentures. In addition, you should:

  • Not smoke or use other tobacco products
  • Not suffer from dry mouth, as dentures can make this worse
  • Have a healthy jawbone
  • Be prepared to take good care of your dentures at home and have routine exams just like natural teeth

Dentures Supported by Dental Implants

By incorporating implant dentistry into your denture restoration, our dentists can provide you with a denture that performs optimally and looks great as well.

Although the advantages vary by patient, generally some of the benefits of implant-supported dentures are:

  • Denture stays in place
  • Denture does not slip when you eat, speak or laugh
  • You can still remove the denture even though it is implant-supported
  • Discomfort of dentures sliding on your gums is eliminated
  • Dental implants promote the strength of the bone beneath your teeth
