Dentures & PartialsAn Overview
Dentures have long been the standard treatment option when replacing a full arch of teeth, or a full set of teeth. Dentures are traditionally removable, however, with advancements in dental technology dentures can now be secured using dental implants.
Dentures are made from a high-quality material and look and feel like natural teeth. Dentures can help patients enjoy a more varied diet and regain confidence in their smile. There are two types of dentures and both can be secured with dental implants.
- Full dentures: used to replace a full top or bottom arch of teeth
- Partial dentures: similar to a dental bridge, used to replace several consecutive missing teeth
Dental implant secured dentures provide added oral health benefits. Dental implant secured dentures function and look like natural teeth. Implants help to maintain the structure of the jaw bone for a more stable oral foundation. Implant secured dentures also eliminate the need for daily adhesives and slippage.
