A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Two types of dentures are available:
- complete dentures
- partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-coloured 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, it prevents other teeth from changing position.
Many people think that dentures have been left behind in the cosmetic dental revolution, it’s not so! In fact, using the latest technology and techniques, cosmetic dentures can create the ultimate smile makeover. Forget 10 years younger, the latest in cosmetic dentures can not only restore your smile but take 20 years off your whole face!
Implant Supported Dentures
Many clients with no remaining teeth or teeth that need removal do not want to wear a removable denture.
Implants are a totally secure, very long-lasting option.
The titanium implant is placed in the jawbone by a minor surgical procedure and actually becomes part of your natural bone. Dentures secured via implants are the ultimate solution, giving you the confidence to eat, smile and laugh.New techniques mean that, in many cases, we can place the implants and secure the denture on the same day – “teeth-in-a-day.”
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.
