Advantages of Custom Dentures
Removable dentures are an economic solution for quick tooth replacement. Designed to fit your unique smile’s anatomy, your prosthesis will rest gently over your gum tissues to provide a secure fit that helps hold your appliance in place.
Types of Dentures Available
Depending on how many teeth you need to replace and what type of denture you’re looking for, you can choose from one of the following options:
Conventional Full Dentures - Sometimes called “plates”, dentures are the quickest and most affordable way to replace all of your teeth at one time. Dentures cover your entire arch, from one side of your smile to the other. If you have any remaining teeth, they will need to be removed before fitting you for a denture. Dr. Erik can arrange for an interim prosthesis so that you never have to go around with missing teeth.
Partial Dentures - Preserve the healthy teeth you still have while replacing all of the missing ones with one appliance. Partial dentures use special clasps that wrap around your other teeth to help hold the prosthesis in place. Depending on the type of partial you’re getting, it may have a metal or acrylic base that the replacement teeth are bonded to.
Implant-Supported Dentures - This hybrid device looks and feels like a traditional denture, but has special attachments underneath to clip or snap onto corresponding dental implants. The implants offer extra security so there’s no need for pastes or adhesives.
Daily Denture Care
Removable dentures should be cleaned regularly to avoid buildup or gum infections. Place your prosthesis in a cleansing solution overnight to help loosen debris, then brush it clean the next morning. Clean your gums with a soft, damp washcloth or extra-soft toothbrush at least twice a day before putting your denture in and taking it out.
Never clean your denture with harsh abrasives, chemicals, or hot water, as they can cause permanent damage to your prosthesis. Bring your denture with you to your regular checkups to have Dr. Erik check for adjustment needs as required.
