REPLACE MISSING TEETH WITH DENTURES
Dentures are custom-made, removable replacements for missing teeth. If you’ve lost some or even all of your natural teeth, it is important to replace them not only to restore your smile but also for the benefit of your health. Dentures can help you eat and speak more comfortably, and are made to closely resemble your natural smile or even improve it! There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. We also offer implant-supported dentures.
Here at Rose City Dental Care, we are proud to offer affordable, natural-looking dentures. We offer traditional dentures and fixed dentures to help our patients overcome tooth loss and smile with confidence again. If you want to restore your smile, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with our knowledgeable dental team.
Patients who have lost a full row of teeth may benefit from traditional removable dentures or dental implant-supported full-arch tooth replacement. A base is made to support the replacement teeth, and it is crafted to resemble the natural gum tissue and fit snuggly against the gums and jawbone. This tight fit creates suction that holds the denture in place. Patients interested in a more stable solution should consider our dental implant-supported dentures.
Partial dentures sometimes referred to simply as partials, are used to fill the gaps in patients’ smiles following tooth loss. These custom-crafted prosthetics attach replacement teeth to a gum-colored base that is shaped to fit snugly between remaining healthy teeth. We offer traditional, removable partials that clip to remaining teeth as well as fixed, dental implant-supported partials.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are attached to dental implants which are anchored in the jawbone, unlike regular dentures which rest on the gums. These are a good option for patients who do not have remaining teeth but do have enough healthy bone structure to support implants. This type of denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants. Implant-supported dentures are usually more stable and comfortable than traditional dentures, with a high rate of patient satisfaction.
