A full denture replaces all the natural teeth. These dentures rest on the gums of either your upper or lower jaws, or both. A full set of dentures helps provide support to your facial structure allowing your lips and cheeks to look fuller, resulting in a younger, healthier appearance.
A partial denture replaces lost or missing teeth and are usually retained by clasps around your existing teeth. Replacing missing teeth will make eating easier and provide you with a more confident smile. These dentures can have a plastic or chrome base for added strength.
Implant retained dentures are a popular alternative to conventional dentures. An implant retained denture replaces one or more single teeth and is held in place by dental implants secured within the jaw. Implant retained dentures provide better ability to eat and enjoy foods like steak, raw fruits and vegetables. They also give you increased confidence as the dentures are stable and secure
Once we have identified a treatment plan, having an implant retained denture is actually very simple.
First we start with an examination and x-ray to determine suitability and the best implant system for use in your individual situation, then we begin the placement of dental implants. Once the implant has integrated into your jawbone, attachments are screwed onto the implant head and also into a new denture.
