Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. There are different types of dentures available, with different materials, styles, and functions. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to an acrylic base. Over time, dentures can become loose and get worn out due to regular usage. When this happens, a dentist may recommend relining or rebasing the denture.
Traditional dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth. They are held in place by suction and dental adhesive. This type of denture is made for patients who are missing all teeth in one or both jaws. We use dental-grade ceramic and gum-colored acrylic to make conventional dentures, which perfectly mimic the oral setup. They also restore oral functionality as they allow the patient to bite and chew food.
Immediate dentures are temporary dentures that you can use immediately after your teeth are removed. These dentures are placeholders until your permanent dentures are ready. They can be in the form of complete or partial dentures, depending on the requirement. Immediate dentures, like regular dentures, may not feel like your natural teeth. They may take some time for you to wear comfortably.
Partial dentures, also known as partials, are tooth replacement prosthetics that can replace one or multiple missing teeth. A partial denture consists of a gum-colored base that holds prosthetic teeth. The base is connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place. Partial dentures are removable and can be taken out and cleaned.
All-on-4® dentures are a type of implant-supported denture that uses four dental implants to support a full arch of prosthetic teeth. These dentures are sometimes referred to as the “Teeth-in-a-Day” procedure, and they allow patients to receive implants and new teeth in just one day. They are well-suited for patients who do not have healthy teeth remaining in their jaw. By anchoring a full arch of prosthetic teeth, these dentures will look and feel natural and allow you to eat and speak normally.
