Removable Prosthetics (Dentures)
If the patient’s dentition is beyond saving and requires removal it may be recommended that dentures be made so that the patient is able to chew again. In some cases implants may be placed first to allow the denture to attach to it giving it greater stability and effectiveness when functioning. Complete dentures require multiple appointments to allow for proper customization for the best result.
When a patient is missing several teeth and bridges or implants are not a good option, partial dentures may be fabricated to restore areas of missing teeth. Partial dentures use the remaining teeth as anchors to allow for better stability when using them. Partial denture may have a metal base or be totally fabricated in pink acrylic to allow for the best esthetics and flexibility of fit.
