CONVENTIONAL PARTIAL DENTURES
A detachable device for the seamless replacement of missing natural teeth. The dentures are attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
PRECISION ATTACHMENT DENTURES
Dentures which lock onto your teeth. This 'locking' effect holds the denture in place very securely giving you the confidence to socialize normally and smile with confidence. They are not visible; they are rigid and have a solid feeling. Ultimately, they provide better support for the denture.
A replacement of all of the natural teeth after the teeth have been removed. They are a type of dental prosthesis- meaning that they do not function as well as real teeth. Complete dentures replace not only missing teeth but they also replace missing soft tissue and bone. Dentures are provided to patients who by disease, trauma or choice have lost all natural teeth in one or both arches. A complete denture replaces all the teeth within the arch but unfortunately relies solely on remaining bone and soft tissue (gums) for support and retention.
Studies show that using implants in conjunction with dentures, slows bone loss which allows the dental prosthesis a solid support for their retention.
