The most affordable means of replacing multiple teeth and restoring that winning smile is dentures. Dentures are a restorative dentistry treatment and are available in many styles and materials to provide a wide range of shapes, shades and contours that will fit your mouth and your budget.
Dentures will replace missing teeth as well as your gum line in a natural looking way, and are removable for easy cleaning and maintenance. You can be fitted for full dentures to replace all teeth, or partial dentures that will replace some teeth while anchoring to existing teeth. Dentures require minimal surgery prior to fitting and can be adapted to conform to your mouth as the jawbone and gum line change.
Full and Complete Dentures
When all of the teeth are missing on either the upper or lower jaw, full dentures are used to replace them. Full dentures are mounted onto an acrylic base that's designed to match your gums. A full upper denture will include a roof, or palate, shaped to the roof of your mouth to help ensure a snug, secure fit.
Full lower dentures are u-shaped to fit your lower jawbone and match the surrounding tissue while giving you a natural looking smile and bite. Complete dentures are a set of full upper and lower dentures to replace a complete set of missing teeth.
Partial dentures are designed to replace missing teeth where some natural teeth remain. A partial denture will also "fill out" the natural shape of your face and mouth where missing teeth may have caused sagging or indentations. You'll look and speak more naturally, and will be able to eat many of the foods you once had to avoid. Partial dentures may be held in place with metal or acrylic frames or clasps.
