Dentures are dental appliances specifically designed to fill in gaps or to replace entire rows of teeth to create a beautiful smile and provide an improved bite. If you or your family member needs a partial, upper or lower denture, our dental office, Stonegate Family Dentistry, can provide you with reliable, economical solutions for your requirements. Our team is committed to providing you with superior-quality dental services and professional care.
What Are Dentures?
A denture comprises prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored plate. These appliances may replace one or several missing teeth and can even be used to replace all teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. An appropriate denture solution can provide added help in chewing, biting, and speaking clearly.
What Are the Types of Dentures Available?
- Full or Complete Dentures
Complete dental appliances are used to replace an entire arch of natural teeth in the upper and lower jaw. Decayed, broken, or damaged teeth may require extraction before our dentists can capture an impression of your gums to fabricate the denture as per your needs. These dentures will help restore your bite and chewing functions while ensuring that you feel more confident and self-assured in your appearance.
A partial denture is modeled to replace one or several teeth and help you enjoy a gap-free smile. These dentures differ from a complete denture in the number of teeth it is designed to replace. In these appliances, the false teeth are attached to a framework with clasps or wires that hold this denture firmly in place.
- Flexible Partial Dentures
These partial dentures are constructed of a flexible material that moves with your mouth and allows your teeth to stay in place. They are designed to give you greater comfort. These dentures are attached with clasps that match the color of your gums, making them much less apparent and much more convenient to wear for longer durations.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
Dental implants can provide a solid anchor point for your upper or lower denture. These advanced dental devices can ensure that your denture stays in place and feels as natural as possible because the posts are surgically inserted into your jawbone.
What Is the Process for Getting Dentures?
The denture process usually involves several appointments. During your first interaction with our dental team, we will examine your teeth systematically to decide on the right approach to replace the missing teeth and enhance your smile.
Suppose some of your teeth are damaged or require extraction. In that case, our dentists will discuss various options with you to determine the most practical way to treat your dental conditions and restore your bite to full functionality.
