Implant-supported dentures are anchored onto several implants. They can be removable or even fixed. Unlike traditional dentures, implant dentures are more secure, stable, thinner and free up space in the mouth, making it easier to enjoy meals and more closely resemble the feel of real teeth. Implants also prevent the bone loss that follows missing teeth from happening.

Removable partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The framework/base can be made of a metal alloy and/or pink acrylic with teeth made of tooth colored acrylic or porcelain which attach to the base.

Complete dentures replace all teeth in one jaw. The base of a complete denture is made of pink acrylic with teeth made of tooth-colored acrylic which attach to the base. These dentures are held in place using suction against your normal tissues and are removable.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What are the benefits of a denture? A denture can restore function and smile appearance when teeth are missing. It will also restore facial esthetics because of the soft tissue support it provides. A conventional removable denture is generally the least costly way to replace missing teeth.
  • What are the disadvantages of a denture? Even under the best of circumstances, dentures do not have the same chewing efficiency of natural teeth. Stability and retention are affected by many factors.
  • Are there alternatives to traditional dentures? Yes, dental implants can be used to support fixed bridges bridges or to support and stabilize a removable denture. This allows for much closer functional range to natural dentition, and implants also help preserve jaw bone rather than allow the ongoing bone resorption/loss that comes with missing teeth.
