Prosthodontics


Removable Complete Dentures

Complete removable dentureFull-mouth teeth replacements designed for edentulous people. Complete dentures help people who have lost all their teeth due to trauma or poor oral hygiene, giving them better chewing abilities in addition to a more appealing appearance. It is important to note that it may take time to adapt to removable complete dentures. Mouth sores, for example, may result from rubbing and pressing of the dentures on the mucous membranes. It may be necessary to visit your prosthodontist for the adjustment of dentures from time to time. These adjustments should resolve any problems. Although dentures have their disadvantages, most people prefer dentures over the problems associated with an edentulous lifestyle.


Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentureA removable partial denture  is for a partially edentulous dental patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge  for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or due to financial limitations. The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial dentureis because patients can remove and reinsert them when required without professional help. Conversely, a “fixed” prosthesis can and should be removed only by a dental professional.


Implant Retained Dentures

Implanted retained dentures
Loose dentures can be remedied with the addition of implant anchors placed by a dental surgeon. Your Denturist will fit dentures over implants to provide stability, increased chewing force, reduced tissue irritations, and decreased bone loss. Optimum tooth replacement is achieved with implants. Implants are root replacements. Once implanted into your jaw, the bone and the implant body integrate into one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor on which a tooth may be fabricated.

Implant bodies are also employed as retention abutments used in retaining full or partial dentures. In studies, dental implants are shown to preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss. Eating, speech and laughter can now be performed with confidence. Patients feel better and gain a new found zest for life, as implants are the closest thing to natural teeth.

 Historically, dental implants have a high clinical success rate. Patients who have opted for dental implants often remark how similar the implant feels to their own natural teeth. The patient can enjoy new found confidence.
