Am I a Good Candidate for Dentures?
If you are missing individual teeth or two to three consecutive teeth, a bridge or dental implant might be the best options for you to consider. However, if you are missing several teeth across multiple areas of the mouth in a single arch, a partial denture could be more ideal. Alternatively, if you have zero or very few teeth in a given arch, a full denture can make it easy for you to smile again and expand your diet. Regardless of the option you choose, you can expect your tooth replacement to be fully customized to fit your mouth exactly for a comfortable and lasting fit.
A partial denture is designed to fit inside of the mouth similar to how a puzzle piece fits into a puzzle. Personalized with tooth-colored restorations and a gum-colored base, partial dentures can be placed in either the top or bottom arch. Using metal hooks, they wrap around existing teeth in order to remain stable.
Whether you have few remaining teeth that are in need of extraction anyway or you’ve been missing all your teeth in your upper and lower arches for quite some time, a full denture is probably the best tooth replacement option for you. This restoration is made from a gum-colored base that’s equipped with ceramic teeth. For even better stability, you can pair the denture with a set of dental implants!
How Does the Process Work?
If we need to remove any existing teeth or complete gum disease therapy, we’ll do this before planning the creation of your denture. We’ll also need to capture a highly detailed digital impression of your mouth using technology available in-house. This 3D image is then used as the blueprint for your future prosthesis. From there, a dental lab offsite will begin fabricating your denture and send it to our office for fitting. After confirming how it feels, we’ll make any necessary adjustments before you leave.
