Dentures are a traditional option to replace a set of missing teeth. Dentures come in many options including: full, partial or implant dentures

Full dentures
When you are entirely edentulous, meaning you have no natural teeth, a complete denture substitutes your teeth in the upper and/or lower arch.

Conventional Full Dentures:
Traditionally, a dentist will not construct and place dentures in a patient’s mouth immediately after the remaining teeth have been removed. The dentist will take measurements of the mouth first and then wait a few weeks or months for the oral tissue to heal. The dentist will only place the traditional full dentures after the gums have recovered completely.

Immediate Full Dentures:
In some circumstances, the dentist will immediately place the dentures after the teeth have been removed. Even though the patient will not be without teeth for long, the immediate full dentures will need to be realigned after a few months. The dentures will loosen as your oral tissue repairs. The dentist will simply reposition the dentures to prevent them from causing difficulties.

Partial Dentures
As the name implies, a partial denture is used to replace lost teeth in either the upper or lower arch. Occasionally, a partial denture is required solely for cosmetic reasons. More frequently than not, it is necessary to increase mastication capacity; nevertheless, if remaining teeth are left unsupported, they may slip sideways or over erupt, making future replacement much more difficult.

Standard acrylic partial dentures are typically bulkier/thicker, with visible wire clasps. This style of partial denture is the most affordable.

Chrome Cobalt Metal Partial Dentures are thinner and smaller in the mouth than most other choices, and they provide more strength, stability, and support for remaining teeth.

Implant retained dentures:

Loose dentures? Say no more!

Implant retained dentures are dentures that clip onto to dental implants in the jaw to provide greater stability and comfort. Traditionally a denture gains stability from the soft tissue in the mouth, however with the additional of dental implants, the retention and stability of the denture is increased.

The ultimate outcome is obtained by inserting titanium implants into the lower jaw in a quick and painless process that allows the denture/s to fit comfortably and firmly.

Implant-Retained Dentures are the most effective solution to regain your ability to consume most meals and to enjoy eating and living with a denture that stays in place while you eat and speak. You can smile freely while wearing the denture, which can also be removed for cleaning. Normal dentures rely exclusively on suction or the movement of your lips, cheeks, and tongue to keep them in place when eating, but implant-retained dentures can restore your chewing capacity up to a specific proportion of that of natural teeth.
