Full Dentures

• Replace all the teeth on the upper and/or lower ridge

• A full upper denture uses suction to stay in place. In most cases there is no need for denture adhesives

• A full lower denture will not get suction like an upper and may require adhesive or implants to stay in place

 

Warning signs that you may require a new full denture include:

  • Poor fit

  • Worn teeth that have become flat

  • Pronounced lower jaw/chin

  • Creases at the corner of the mouth

  • Impaired speech

  • Inability to chew food properly resulting in indigestion, gas, bloating, or loss of appetite

     *Note; Most often a new full denture can restore aesthetic… and function

 

Partial Dentures

• Partial dentures improve esthetics, restore function and maintain tooth position in the mouth when one or more

   teeth are missing but not all.

• A partial denture can prolong the life of remaining teeth in the mouth by preventing twisting, tilting and drifting of

   the other teeth into the open space.

 

• An implant over denture can either be a partial or full denture. The implants snap into the denture and improve fit

   and function.

• Implants on a full upper denture require a minimum of 4 to be stable. A full upper denture with implants does not

   rely on suction for fit and can be a horseshoe shape, benefiting those with a sensitive gag reflex.

• Implants on a full lower denture provide stability that would not be there otherwise. They decrease pressure on the

   gums while increasing biting force, fit and quality of life

• Note; A minimum of 2 implants are required on a full lower denture

• Implants on a partial denture can improve esthetics's when clasps are undesirable. They can also give added support

   when only 1 tooth is remaining.

 

 

Implants

Precision Attachments

• Precision attachments are used in conjunction with partials to improve aesthetics when clasps are undesirable

 

• Are made of a special material that flexes under pressure, but resists breaking.

•They are recommended when there is and allergy to acrylic and/or metal, or when simply preferred.

  *Note; If broken this material cannot be repaired

 

Flexible Partials

• Are a soft material added to an acrylic denture to improve comfort on sensitive gums.

• Typically used in full lower dentures to reduce pressure.

• Recommended for individuals with very flat lower gums.

 

Soft Liners

• Immediate/Transitional Dentures are made prior to having teeth extracted.

• They act as a Band-Aid in the mouth reducing swelling and protecting the extraction, to immediately restore

   aesthetic and function.

• They are to be worn during the healing process approximately 3-5 months and no longer than 1 year.

• Once the healing is complete they must either be relined or replaced with a new denture due to significant changes

   in the mouth post extraction.

 

 

Immediate/Transitional Dentures

Relines

A denture reline, can improve the fit of a denture when changes in the mouth have occurred

*Note; A denture reline is only recommended when the teeth on a denture are not visibly worn or flat.

 

Most repairs can be done in the same day.

 

*Note; If a denture is visibly worn or if a repair will not correct the reason as to why it is breaking a new denture is recommended.

 

Repairs

Whitening

To lighten the color of natural teeth, for improved aesthetics.
