Full Dentures, Partial Dentures and Implant-Supported Dentures

Today’s dentures are made from materials that replicate the look and feel of real teeth and gums. Modern technologies, like laser scanning and digital imaging, let us capture every detail of your mouth.

By blending years of experience with the most sophisticated tools available, we can create full, partial or implant-supported dentures designed specifically for you. A full denture is a set of upper teeth and gums or lower teeth and gums that restores function when all of the teeth are missing.

A partial denture replaces a segment of teeth when other teeth are present and implants are not an option. A third option is an implant-supported denture, which is removable like traditional dentures but can be made more stable by attaching it to dental implants.

Implants are surgically placed into the jaw, where they create an anchor for what is called an “overdenture.” Traditional dentures rest on the gums, but this newer type of denture snaps on to attachments on the implants, which keeps pressure off of the gum tissues. An implant-supported denture can be a good option for the lower jaw in particular, because traditional dentures tend to be less stable there. Implant-supported dentures eliminate the movement that most patients cannot tolerate.
