Missing most or all of your teeth suggests that you need dentures. Today technology produces prosthetics that function better than ever before and look more natural. If you feel that you could benefit from dentures, contact our office for a consultation.
What Are My Options?
Each client is unique. In fact, dentures come in differing kinds to determine the best options for you in your situation. We will conduct an in depth consultation and examination to determine your needs and solutions.
Full dentures are used to treat patients that are missing all of their teeth. These dentures can be easily removed for sleeping and cleaning. If extractions are necessary, full dentures can be placed immediately afterward, or fitted shortly after healing is complete.
Partial dentures, also known as bridges, are used when a patient has several healthy teeth remaining.
Implant-supported dentures attach to dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically implanted into the jaw bone. This type of denture offers the best stability, allowing you to bite into foods like apples and steaks with no risk of dentures slipping out of place.
After the decision has been made, we will use 3-D imaging and take impressions of your bite. Then we can create your custom dentures. Over time adjustments may be necessary to ensure continued fit and comfort and we are happy to help with that ongoing process.
