FULL DENTURES, PARTIAL DENTURE & OVER DENTURES
When many of your teeth are loose or painful, they may be beyond saving. This condition is usually caused by an advanced periodontal disease. If you are not a good candidate for implants, then removing your teeth and replacing them with a denture may be the best way to eliminate the infection and restore the health of your mouth
1. Full or Complete Denture: Full or complete dentures replaces all the missing teeth in the upper and lower jaw. A "Conventional" Full Denture is made a minimum of two- three weeks after any extracted teeth have been removed, to allow for complete healing of the extracted teeth. This ensures all bone "resorption" or bone changes have occurred, and the impressions we take to represent your bone, are accurate and will not change.
2. Immediate Denture :Immediate Denture is a denture that is placed “immediately” after extractions, and is performed the same day. Often, this type of denture needs an additional "filling" to account for the continual bone loss that normally occurs after the extractions of teeth for several weeks. In some cases, when an excessive bone loss occurs, as the extractions heal, the second set of dentures is made for an "ideal" treatment plan.
3. Partial Denture: Partial Denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth. . It can be attached to the teeth with clasps and made to look very similar to natural teeth. As with the Full Denture, this is a removable appliance that is taken out daily.
An Implant Overdenture is a denture that has some sort of direct connection to dental implants. The connection helps secure the Full Denture into place while overcoming the instability and lack of retention of a common complete denture. Many times either "gaskets" or "bars" are used to attach the denture to the implants, and thus creates a superior fitting appliance. This is a good treatment option for an individual who requires a full denture but wants to achieve a more stable and less bulky type of restoration.
