WHAT IS A DENTURE OR PARTIAL?

Both a denture and partial will help to transform your entire smile. If you’re missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed. Instead, we can make a personalized and customized denture to fit your needs. The denture is meant to last for many years and provide you with a natural-looking, durable smile.

WHY WOULD SOMEONE NEED A DENTURE OR PARTIAL?

The reason someone would need a denture is because they’re missing either all or most of their own teeth. You might have issues chewing, eating or talking because of the teeth you’re missing. In order to improve your smile and how it functions, we’ll recommend having a denture made. The denture is removable and should be cleaned nightly before replacing it in the morning.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR EITHER A DENTURE OR PARTIAL?

Both a denture and partial are ideal for individuals who are missing teeth. They are beneficial for those who cannot have implants placed or who do not want to have a bridge made. We will examine your teeth to determine if and when a denture may be needed. We will recommend the appliance based on our own findings and the health of your current teeth.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE DENTURE OR PARTIAL PROCEDURE?

We start the denture process by taking impressions of both your gums and teeth. We then send these impressions to a local lab where your new appliance is created for you. You will come back in after roughly two weeks so that the denture can be placed. You will need to remove the denture nightly to keep it looking its best and to clean it properly. Most dentures are able to last for about seven years or longer depending on how well they are cared for during that time and how rough you are when wearing the prosthetic.

IMPLANT-SUPPORTED DENTURES

WHAT ARE IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES?

Implant-supported dentures involve a series of implants that are placed to hold the denture securely in your mouth. Many denture wearers complain that their appliances slip and fall out throughout the day, or the fit of the denture looks unnatural and is uncomfortable for them. In order to eliminate these problems, we can place several implants and make an overdenture that snaps into place over them. Your overdenture is a great way to restore your smile and get away from the creams, gels and adhesive strips that you’ve been using for years.

WHY WOULD IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES BE NEEDED?

It’s not uncommon to have an ill-fitting denture. Weight gain, weight loss and simply getting older can all have an impact on the way that your denture fits. If you’re finding that you’re constantly using strips and adhesive gels to keep your denture in place, it’s time to look for a better alternative. Implant-supported dentures are ideal because the implants themselves are permanent, so you won’t need to worry about replacing them over time.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES?

To determine if you’re a candidate for implant-supported dentures, we’ll examine your mouth and take a look at your existing dentures. This will give us an idea of whether or not you’d benefit from implants. If you have bone loss, this could have an impact on how well the implants heal. For this, we recommend bone grafting prior to any implants being placed.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE TO PLACE IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES?

The first step is to provide you with sedation or anesthetic of your choosing. We will discuss these options during your consultation appointment. We then carefully make incisions through the gums and place the long, thin implant deep into the jawbone. The implants are then given time to heal. For most patients, this can take anywhere from three to six months depending on your own unique ability to heal. The next step is to make an overdenture for you using impressions. This denture is removable, but it will snap securely in place over the new implants.

It was great. The staff was polite and very helpful and the dentist explained what she had to do and she was gentle doing her work with no pain. I called them and explained my problem of an old filling falling out and they fit me into their schedule the same day.
