Dentures can be made out of several materials, like porcelain, ceramic, metal, and plastic, or some combination of those. We can make either partial or complete dentures for you. Partial dentures work best when you are missing a few teeth in a row. Like a bridge, partial dentures help fill the space left by missing teeth and keeps your other teeth from moving or shifting to new positions. Complete dentures are needed when all your natural teeth -- on the top, bottom, or both -- have been lost.
Well-made dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth and can improve your smile by filling out your facial appearance, which makes you look like your younger self.
For comfort and jaw health, dentures sometimes called "false teeth" must be designed to spread biting and chewing stresses evenly over each jaw. The way the teeth meet during biting need to be precisely calculated for each person. Tooth contact must allow smooth sliding of the lower teeth against the upper teeth during jaw movements without the dentures becoming dislodged.
Custom-fitted dentures will support facial muscles and tissue, giving you a more youthful appearance. Dentures will also support the jaw joints and properly stimulate the oral tissues and underlying bone. This minimizes bone loss, which is common following the loss of natural teeth. Our office also can create dental implants for a stable underpinning to your dentures. The implant is placed in your jawbone and serves as a rock solid platform for a partial or full denture. Stabilizing dentures with dental implants is an effective way to preserve jawbone and create very secure dentures. Removable dentures are also an option, depending on your preference. We will always work with you to get the best possible fit for your dentures.
