Types of Dentures
We’re happy to provide many different types of dentures to fit all kinds of people and situations. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Raisch today to learn more about the different styles and which one would work best for you.
Complete Dentures | You will need a set of complete dentures if all your teeth are missing. Full dentures are a complete set of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base that is placed right on top of your own gums.
Partial Dentures | When only a few teeth are missing, a partial denture is used. By filling in the space left by your missing teeth, partial dentures prevent your remaining teeth from shifting in your mouth, in addition to healing your bite.
Temporary Dentures | To help the healing process for extracted teeth, we may also place immediate dentures in your mouth right after your teeth come out. The immediate dentures fill in the space left by extraction, promote healing and prevent your teeth from shifting.
When your mouth has completely healed, we then fit the permanent dentures in your mouth, making final adjustments to ensure a snug and comfortable fit.
Adhesive Options | Many people use fixatives on the underside of complete dentures to help hold them in place more securely. On the other hand, partial dentures attach to existing teeth on either side of the partial to secure them in place. Implant dentures stay attached via the implanted post.
Types of Dentures
Where appropriate and needed we may suggest dental implants or mini-implants to stabilize your dentures. Not only does this make your dentures stronger, but it has the added benefit of deterring bone loss.
Loss of bone in your mouth can cause jaw problems, eventual difficulties with wearing dentures, and even changes in the appearance of your face, giving it a sunken look.
Mini-Implants | Mini-implants consist of a titanium screw inserted into the bone below your missing tooth. Unlike traditional implants, mini-implants don’t require months of healing and they work even when there is insufficient bone quality in your jaw for full-sized implants.
Grafting Options | If there is too much bone loss to use even mini-implants, bone grafting may be necessary. For most people, bone grafting is a fairly simple procedure. In cases where there is insufficient bone to graft, we will assist in planning the most appropriate course of treatment for you.
