What Are Dentures? All You Need to Know

Dentures, sometimes referred to as false teeth, are customized to fit the patient's individual needs. Traditional dentures are a type of prosthetic that are made to be removed, which is mostly for sleeping and for cleaning. The upper dentures are referred to as maxillary, while the lower teeth are mandibular. Dentures help the patient chew and speak normally, just as their natural teeth were intended to do. They are made to be aesthetically attractive as well, offering the appearance of natural teeth.

Types of Dentures We Offer

Whether one, several or all of your teeth need to be replaced, we create the dentures that will work for you. Standard and complete dentures feature the full, removable set. These are created after the patient's full set of teeth have been removed and the gums and surrounding tissues are healed. This is typically in about 2-3 months of teeth removal and gum healing. Partial dentures can replace a tooth or teeth alongside other natural teeth that remain. Immediate dentures are often created ahead of time, for placement immediately after the patient's natural teeth are removed. Partial dentures are connected to a plastic base with metal framework, placed adjacent to a patient's existing teeth.
