Dentures & Partials: An Overview
Aside from the physical difficulties of missing teeth, losing your teeth can cause significant emotional difficulty. We offer natural-looking, life-like restoration of missing teeth using high-quality dentures and partial dentures. We carefully design dentures that fit comfortably and securely in your mouth. In addition, we offer implant supported dentures for a non-removable option.
Visit our Severan Park dentist office to explore your tooth replacement options. Our team of dentist will work with you to determine if dentures are right for you.
About Implant-Secured Dentures
If you are a candidate, our dentists may recommend implant secured dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. Implant dentures are a significant investment; however, they offer long-lasting benefits compared to other options.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Implant dentures offer a number of benefits compared to removable dentures including:
- Better retention, especially for lower restorations
- No worry of dentures “slipping” or “falling out”
- More comfortable – do not cover the palette
- Improved health of bone and gums
- Ability to eat without restrictions
- No adhesives needed
- More natural look and feel
Dentures & Partials: What to Expect
For patients missing a full arch of teeth, dentures can be a great option to restore function and beauty to their natural smile. In order to find the most suitable tooth replacement for your smile, it is important to undergo a consultation with our team of dentists. After a detailed consultation, we can recommend the most appropriate solution for your smile.
If implant secured dentures are right for you, we will coordinate this phase of your care with a highly trained oral surgeon or periodontist. We can perform the restoration portion of your treatment in our comfortable Severna Park dentist office. After a specialist places the dental implants, it will take 3-6 months to heal. We may place a temporary denture to protect the gums while they heal. Once the implants have fused with the jawbone, we will take impressions of your teeth and utilize digital imaging to build custom dentures.
Our goal is to build dentures that support your natural aesthetic, restore function, and fit comfortably in your mouth.
Once your dentures are ready, we will securely place them to the implants. It is important to practice a proper oral hygiene routine and schedule routine visit to the dentist to maintain a healthy smile. Implant-secured dentures can last many years with proper care.
