Full dentures are designed to replace the entire top or bottom arch of teeth. They’re able to stay in place within a patient’s mouth with the help of natural suction and/or denture adhesive. Full dentures are removable, which means that patients can store them when sleeping and clean them much more conveniently. Both traditional and implant options are available depending on a patient’s needs.
Partial dentures (also known as removable bridges) allow our team to replace certain missing teeth along a single arch without patients having to sacrifice healthy ones in the area. They are attached with the help of metal clips or brackets and are removable. This design is a big help in preventing the remaining teeth from shifting to fill empty spaces over time.
With implant-retained dentures, you don't have to worry about slippage or messy adhesive creams. Implants can be used as anchors to keep your removable dentures secure and comfortable. Because you need healthy bone tissue to support implant dentures, Dr. Blankenship or Dr. Patel will evaluate your case to make sure you are a good candidate for this option.
Even though they’re not your natural teeth, it’s very important to handle your denture with the utmost care. Brush and clean the prosthetic daily using denture cleaner or mild dishwashing liquid in place of traditional toothpaste. When you’re not wearing the denture, always put it in a cup of denture soaking solution or room temperature water to keep it moist. If you wear partial dentures, it is very important to maintain the health of your remaining teeth.
