Get Your Smile Back
If you are missing teeth, dentures may be a great option for you. For many with more severe dental problems, dentures can drastically improve their quality of life.
At Bluff Creek Dental, we make it a priority to help you select the best options to restore your oral health’s function and help you live better on the day-to-day. This includes treatments to help you with many different types of dentures.
Denture technology has advanced considerably. They have become more natural looking, and comfortable than ever before.
If you have questions about whether or not you may be a candidate for a certain type of denture, our experienced staff can answer any questions you may have pertaining to treatment and other cosmetic options.
Full dentures include both an upper and lower set. While your upper denture will include a plate that will cover the roof of your mouth, your lower denture will be a horseshoe shape that will allow you to move your tongue and speak freely. Full dentures include replacement teeth for both your upper and lower teeth. Both are fitted into acrylic arches made to look just like your gums.
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is a custom appliance we can provide you with to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures will often be fabricated to include a clasp to attache to natural teeth. This clasp makes your partial dentures easily removable and allows for easier cleaning.
When determining if you’re a good candidate for a removable partial denture, our doctors will look at your mouth and may recommend adding crowns on your natural teeth to improve the fit of your dentures.
Implant Supported Dentures
Our doctors have been trained in the latest restorative dental techniques, this includes dental implants. Using dental implant technology we are able to go one step further and provide implant-supported dentures. While a regular removable set of dentures typically rests on the gums, an implant-supported denture is attached to implants, securely placed in a healthy jaw. Implant supported dentures are often the preferred treatment of those missing all of their teeth.
Denture Repairs and Realignments
If you have had your dentures for awhile, it’s common for your mouth to begin change shape. Over time, your jaw bones naturally shrink, and your dentures may not fit as well as they did in the past. Poorly fitting dentures can cause problems that can include mouth sores and gum problems. While we recommend replacing your dentures every 5-7 years, if you are experiencing ill-fitting denture issues, we can help you determine if they may are in need of replacement or may simply need a repair.
