Dentures are a common option used to replace a single or multiple teeth. Along with other benefits, many find their cost much more affordable than dental implants, for instance. They also don’t require surgery or an invasive procedure. A removable set can provide you with a functional, great fitting and natural looking dental replacement. You may have lots of questions or concerns about getting a partial or full set of prosthetics, and we are glad to address those here and in the office.
A full denture is a removable prosthesis that is used to replace a full set on your upper or lower jaw. Our dentist will remove any remaining ones, if any, and will fit the patient for the fixture. Our full, or complete, sets are designed to feel natural and comfortable, require less dietary restrictions as possible, decrease the chance of bone loss in your jaw and mouth, and look great.

Complete dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate”. These are made after the teeth have been removed, and the tissue has started to heal. Conventional types are ready in about eight to twelve weeks after the teeth are removed. The immediate type are made in advance and are positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. The wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
A partial is made from a gum-colored base that matches your own gums, and artificial replacements which, depending on where it will be placed, may be connected by a metal frame. It is designed to replace one or more missing ones, keeping the existing ones from moving into the gaps.

This type are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. They are beneficial because not only that it fills the space created by the missing teeth, but also prevents neighboring teeth to shift into position.
