Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. Depending on a patient’s individual needs, we offer three types of dentures at Glow Comprehensive Dentistry that will help improve the appearance and function of your smile.
- Complete Dentures – A type of denture that is fitted for the natural anatomy of your mouth, and replaces all of your natural upper and/or lower teeth.
- Partial Dentures – A removable partial denture that attaches to your natural teeth with clasps that keep them in place, completing your smile by filling in the spaces created by missing teeth. Your natural teeth are used as stable supports for removable partial dentures instead of dental implants.
- Overdentures – Giving dentures more stability and a better fit, an overdenture is a type of denture that is placed over dental implants and typically “snaps” onto the implants.
Your dentures will experience some type of wear over time, and require regular maintenance as a result. Your dentures may need to be replaced or realigned to maintain a proper fit. The alignment of your jaw will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges shrink due to teeth extraction.
