Missing teeth? Don’t worry! It’s time for you to enjoy a beautiful smile again! Traditional dentures are prostheses comprised of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. They can be used to replace a few missing teeth or a full arch of missing teeth. We carefully create your custom-made dentures using impressions of your mouth. The result is a natural-looking, high-quality prosthetic that is built to be comfortable and effective.
Dentures come in the partial and full variety (depending upon whether some or all your teeth need to be replaced).
Denture Stabilization and Fixed Dentures
Fixed dentures are supported by mini-implants. These surgically placed implants act like roots for your replacement teeth, giving you a more stable, fixed structure that is just like natural teeth. The process is also known as denture stabilization. Fixed dentures provide great fixation and support to help you smile, chew and speak naturally. They also prevent deterioration and shrinkage of the jawbone caused by tooth loss, helping you maintain your facial shape. These are a great option for people who have lost most or all their teeth and are looking for a permanent and affordable replacement.
These are detachable dentures that combine the advantages of fixed dentures and traditional dentures. Hybrid dentures are placed using four or more implants in the jawbone. They are attached to abutments that screw on to a framework made of metal. The dentures are attached to the implants using screws, and they don’t need to be removed every day.
