Our dentures are capable of being fabricated in a few different ways:
Complete dentures replace the entire row of teeth on the top and bottom. If there are a few remaining teeth, they will be pulled to accommodate the new detailed and highly realistic appliance. The lower denture fits snugly over the gum line, leaving room for the tongue, while the upper denture covers the upper gum line and hard palate for a secure fit.
When the gums and remaining teeth are in good condition, and the patient would prefer a less-invasive option than dental implants, a partial denture can be used. They typically consist of an acrylic bridge designed to mimic natural teeth, supported by a removable metal framework that fits around the patient’s remaining teeth.
Immediate dentures often referred to as temporary dentures, are provided to the patient on the same day that their teeth are removed. This way the smile is preserved throughout the healing process and the patient can immediately begin to adjust to wearing and eating with dentures.
