A denture ,also knows as a partial denture is a removable oral appliance for replacement for one or more missing teeth. Dentures are usually fabricated from acrylic materials but may occasionally incorporate the use of other materials and metals . Dentures are designed to be tooth supported, tooth and tissue supported or implant supported. A custom-made, properly fit denture or partial denture made by a dentist at our office can be completely aesthetic, natural-looking and light weight and comfortable for chewing, and restores normal speech, function and appearance of the patient. Our custom-crafted dentures look natural and let you live life to the fullest.
If a person has lost too much of their jawbone over the years, to stabilize their dentures implants or mini implants can be placed. The dentures are attached to the implants to hold them firmly in place. If you have this problem with loss of jawbone resulting in ill-fitting dentures, call us for a consultation appointment for an evaluation.
