Removable & Fixed Dentures
There are numerous options for replacing your missing teeth. Whether it’s a partial denture, conventional full dentures, or a fixed implant, we can help. Understanding the benefits of the different types are important, so we’re going to take a closer look at some of these options.
Conventional Full Dentures
Full (or complete) dentures consist of both upper and lower sets, which are removable, and can be used to replace missing teeth. The denture teeth are made out of porcelain or acrylic, and are held together by a metal or acrylic base. Full dentures may be needed when you lose all (or most) of your teeth, and can help fill out your appearance again—leaving you feeling more confident.
Removable Partial Dentures
Partial dentures can replace several missing teeth but, not an entire upper or lower set of teeth. Ideally, for partial dentures to work, you must have some healthy teeth remaining in the upper and lower parts of your mouth.
Full-arch fixed implant bridges (otherwise known as All-on-4), have become very popular in the dental field. They are relatively less expensive than full conventional dentures, and can last a lifetime. Benefits include easy maintenance, short procedure time, quick results, and affordability.
