What Are All of the Types of Dentures?
We are all different, meaning all of our dental needs are slightly different. Addressing your unique goals is essential to us so our Midland, MI office provides many personalized denture options for tooth restoration:
- Removable partial dentures take the place of empty spaces left behind by one or many lost teeth, held in place by discreetly fastening to surrounding teeth.
- Detachable full dentures replace a complete upper or lower arch and are retained by the natural shape of the jawbone or an oral adhesive.
- Implant-held dentures take the place of multiple or a full arch of teeth, fastened to dental implants in the jaw for enhanced stabilization.
- Immediate full dentures are used right after the natural teeth are removed. The fit of these pieces can be modified as the gums recover.
- Conventional full dentures are placed in cases where teeth are already gone and the gums are fully recovered from tooth loss.
Can I Get Dentures?
If you are missing multiple teeth or ought to have multiple teeth taken out, you may be a good candidate for dentures. Dentures can restore your oral capabilities, enable you to eat rich foods, and help retain the shape of your face. Dentures work well when the gum tissues are healthy and there is an appropriate amount of jawbone to keep them in position. During your visit with Dr. Knight, he will evaluate your oral health and talk about possible solutions, depending on your goals, needs, maintenance preferences, and wallet. After this, our team will be able to help you determine if dentures are right for you and which style will best suit your unique situation.
What Is the Denture Process?
Dr. Knight will start your denture process by making digital or molded impressions of your top and lower arches. These impressions will be forwarded to a highly advanced dental lab where they will create your customized dentures. Full and partial dentures are composed of lightweight resin, which can be supported by a metal framework. Crafted using medical-grade materials, dentures are intended to mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gum tissues. Once your dentures are ready, we will ask you to follow up for a fitting consultation. Dr. Knight will adjust your dentures so they are comfortable or attach them to your positioned titanium implants. Our team will also discuss the appropriate techniques to take care of your new dentures.
