Complete Removable Dentures
Complete dentures are used for patients with no teeth. Complete dentures can replace a full set of teeth on the upper or lower arch. Nowadays, there are a variety of natural-looking dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth.These appliances use suction to stay in place. They are made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth. If you are missing all teeth, dentures may be an option.
Implant- Retained Dentures
You may also choose to have implants placed in both the top and bottom jaw to help hold your dentures in place. After 4-6 months of healing, snaps are placed into the implants and your denture. This allows the implants to help hold your denture in place and also preserves your natural bone better than a regular complete denture. You can still remove your denture to clean it.
Implant- Supported Dentures
Also known as “all-on-four”, patients who qualify for this treatment can often have their teeth extracted, implants placed, and a temporary fixed denture placed. After healing, a final fixed denture is made. These fixed dentures do not need to cover the entire roof of your mouth. The denture is screwed into your implants, you cannot remove it yourself. Your dentist is able to remove the denture for cleaning or repairs. You will need to brush your fixed implant denture two to three times daily to maintain implant and tissue health.
