Our dentures are capable of being fabricated in a few different ways:
These dentures consist of both a top and a bottom plate that can be crafted in a number of different ways. If a few teeth still remain, these will usually be pulled to make room for the denture. The bottom denture will fit snugly over the gum line to make room for the tongue. The upper denture will then cover the palate of the upper mouth to hold it in place.
These are typically a removable acrylic bridge that’s accompanied by metal framework that fits around remaining teeth to fill in the gap. Partial dentures are used when there are teeth that are missing, but both the remaining teeth and gums are still in good condition. Often, partials are used as a less invasive and non-surgical alternative to dental implants.
These are often referred to as temporary dentures. They’ll be immediately placed in your mouth after tooth extraction. While your gums are healing, the dentures will preserve your smile until you get your permanent set of dentures.
