What Are Dentures?
Dentures are dental restorations designed to replace multiple consecutive missing teeth. If you have lost most or all of your in teeth in one or both dental arches, dentures can restore your smile.
Types of Dentures
To accommodate the needs of our patients, Dr. Bousaba provides both traditional and implant-supported dentures:
Traditional dentures are composed of a plastic base that is carefully selected to match your gums. The teeth used in your denture will be crafted from state-of-the-art porcelain for the most realistic results. Traditional dentures may be secured using small metal clasps, a special dental adhesive, or natural suction. Dr. Bousaba uses advanced technology to design your dentures for the best possible fit.
We offer both partial and full removable dentures. Partial dentures can be used instead of a bridge to replace several missing teeth in a row while full dentures replace an entire dental arch.
For patients who desire improved stability, an implant-supported denture is recommended. An implant-supported denture relies on carefully placed dental implants to hold your restoration in place. In addition to providing a more secure foundation, implant-supported dentures protect against jawbone atrophy, which is essential to prevent further tooth loss. As such, implant treatment is highly recommended.
What to Expect During Treatment
If Dr. Bousaba has determined that dentures are the best solution for you, any remaining teeth must first be extracted. He can then take impressions of your bite. Your impressions will then be sent to the lab where your denture will be hand-crafted according to these specifications. Once your restoration has been returned from the lab, you will return to our office for placement. At this time, Dr. Bousaba will make any necessary adjustments to ensure the most secure and comfortable fit.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer several invaluable benefits, including:
- Restoring your ability to eat and speak properly
- Providing support for cheeks and lips for a more youthful appearance
- Boosting your self-confidence
Additionally, many patients experience an improvement in their overall quality of life after receiving their dentures.
