Partials & Dentures
Dentures are removable appliances that serve to replace missing teeth. If you have lost your teeth because of decay, injury or gum disease, placing partial or full dentures will benefit your health and appearance. Dentures not only improve your smile, but also make eating and speaking easier. At Aesthetic Dental & Specialty Center, we use premium quality IPN teeth for natural looking partial and full dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. There are several types of full dentures available in our dental center:
- Immediate Dentures
The procedure of immediate dentures placement is completed in one day. Immediate dentures are delivered on the same day after the removal of natural teeth. After the procedure, you should keep on wearing the dentures during the healing period, after a period of few weeks gum shrink. That is why, this type of dentures requires more adjustment to fit them properly and usually should considered to be a temporary treatment until final adjustment on dentures is completed.
- Next Day Dentures
The dental procedure for fitting and delivery of dentures is performed on the next day after the teeth extraction or if removal of teeth has been completed at previous time.
While the regular dentures rests on the gums, overdentures are attached to and supported by implants. Usually, overdenture is used when a person has few or no teeth remaining in the jaw, but has enough bone to support implants. The denture is made of an acrylic base that looks like gums and very high quality porcelain like IPN teeth attached to the base. The denture needs at least two implants for proper support.
Partial dentures are used to replace a group of teeth. All partial dentures are attached to the remaining natural teeth.
- Aesthetic Partial Dentures
Partial denture is made of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic. A partial denture may have clasps and a metal framework that are connected to your teeth. In some cases, a special device called precision attachment is used to connect the denture to your natural teeth.
- Valplast Flexible Partial Dentures
Valplast partial dentures offer a unique aesthetic quality and comfort. They are custom-fabricated and metal free. Among the main advantages of Valpalst dentures are their light weight, invisibility, safeness and superior comfort. With Valplast you save your time by eliminating teeth preparation and a metal framework try-on. The Valplast placement process provides ideal adaptation to both hard and soft tissues.
- Implant Supported Partial Dentures
We can convert your existing denture to implant supported denture, providing you a lot more stability. For those patients who are missing several front teeth, implant supported partial dentures are the best choice, particularly if the remaining teeth are not strong enough to support the dentures. Before you have implant supported dentures in your mouth, you should have the implants placed first.
Care for Your Dentures
The dentures require the same care and oral hygiene as your natural teeth. If you want your dentures last longer, follow these simple rules.
- Clean the dentures regularly. Most of the brands provide a special cleaner for dentures.
- Don’t let your dentures dry out. When you’re not wearing them, place your dentures to a special dental cleanser in order to keep them hydrated. Don’t use hot water: this may damage your dentures.
- It is also recommended to rinse your dentures after eating to remove food pieces.
- Brush your teeth and tongue carefully before putting on your dentures. This stimulates blood circulation in your tissues and removes plaque.
