Dentures

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. Two types of dentures available are complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Complete/Full dentures:

With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the roof of your mouth (palate), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. They are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate."

Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. A conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, it should be noted that bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal, which is a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with a conventional one. Immediate dentures require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Partial Dentures:

A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, but it also prevents other teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns. This is a more natural-looking appliance.

Are There Alternatives to Dentures?

Yes, dental implants can be used to support cemented bridges, eliminating the need for a denture. The cost is usually greater, but the implants and bridges more closely resemble the feel of real teeth. Dental implants are becoming the alternative to dentures but not everyone is a candidate.

Our Happy Patients

"Staff are friendly and non-judgmental. I came in after not having gone to the dentist in about 2 years. Rather than lecturing me about the importance of dental hygiene, they worked with me to set up a plan to get back on track. The exam with the dr was thorough and he was very knowledgeable. Overall a great experience. Thank you Dr!! "

"Recently, my wife and I had to change dentists bc of insurance reasons. Kaizen Family Dental seems to do everything to make the experience as convenient as possible. Once I arrived for my appointment, there was no waiting in the lobby. The staff introduced themselves. The dentist reviewed the xrays and explained everything. Overall, a very pleasant experience, glad found this dentist."
