CUSTOM HANDCRAFTED DENTURES
Only high quality materials are used in every fabrication of every denture. Our dentures have a natural and lifelike appearance and have an individual customized fit. Complete dentures replace all the teeth on either side of the jaw and are form-fitting to the gums and the roof of the mouth. In order for these dentures to be most effective, they must be fit precisely. This involves creating the right amount of suction to create a secure fit. In order to fit a set of standard dentures, it usually takes four visits to the denturist. These visits include fitting, designing and creating the dentures.
Partial dentures replace one or several teeth on either side of the jaw. Partial dentures may be made of acrylic, alloy, gold, or titanium. Partial dentures are easier to fit due to the fact that they cover a smaller area in the mouth. They attach to surrounding teeth and don’t depend as much on suction to be secured.
Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the extraction(s). Immediate dentures will require a permanent relining in 6 months to a year after extractions. Immediate dentures allow the patient to get dentures the same day that teeth are removed. However, as the swelling in the gums recedes, immediate dentures can shift. When this shifting occurs, the denturist makes adjustments to align the teeth.
Implant dentures are the ultimate dentures for fit and function. They come in full sets and partials. Implant dentures are the most stable of all dentures.
There are five types of dentures. They are called full plate, partial, Cu-Sil, immediate and implant dentures.
