Replace your missing teeth with dentures that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please.
Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures. There are two types of full dentures.
Conventional Full Dentures
All of your teeth must be removed and the tissue must have time to heal before conventional full dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.
Immediate Full Dentures
Prior to having your teeth removed, we will take measurements and have dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, your dentures are immediately placed in your mouth so you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels. The dentures will need to be tightened after the jaw bone has healed.
Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth. Over time, you will become comfortable eating and speaking with your dentures and they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth.
