Removable Full and Partial Prosthesis

Removable Partial Dentures:

When there are missing teeth, it is very important that they be replaced-due to the fact that the surrounding teeth come adrift and begin to move into the free space. This causes a number of problems:

  • it can damage gum tissue
  • cause teeth to become crooked
  • make cleaning more difficult
  • difficulties with chewing food
  • poor speech and lowered self confidence
  • and ultimately lead to periodontal (gum) disease and additional tooth decay and loss of more teeth.


A fitted denture will improve all these problems.
The removable partial denture can be made of plastic or chrome.

 

Full upper and/or lower prosthesis (Dentures):

Also known as “false teeth”, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. They are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissue in the oral cavity. Complete dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch (i.e. the maxillary (upper) or mandibular (lower) arch).

Dentures are fabricated in our dental laboratory, and made of acrylic material.

Implant Supported Dentures:

Fixed dental implant-supported overdenture

Dental implant placement

If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, a custom-made denture may be secured using dental implants. The number of implants will vary for each patient.

 

 

 

Make custom overdenture

You will be fitted for a custom overdenture that attaches directly to the implants. The holes in the overdenture will be covered after attachment.

 

 

 

Overdenture attached

Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants to stimulate the jaw and maintain bone.* Your dentist can remove the denture when needed for maintenance and cleaning

 

 


Removable dental implant-supported overdenture

Dental implant placement

If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture that can be removed by the patient for cleaning.

 

 

 

Custom overdenture created

You will be fitted for a custom-made bar that attaches to the dental implants to support a new overdenture. Your existing denture may be modified to be worn during this period.

 

 

Attach custom overdenture

The new overdenture will have attachments which snap or clip it into place. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants to stimulate the jaw and maintain bone.* You will be able to remove the denture easily for cleaning.

 

 


Dental implant-stabilized overdenture

Dental implant placement

If all your lower teeth are missing, another option may be to stabilize your removable denture using a small number of implants. This can sometimes be a cost-effective solution.

 

 

Overdenture fitting

After healing, abutment posts are attached to the implants. Your current denture can sometimes be modified, or a new denture can be created.

 

 

 

Overdenture attached

The modified denture is snapped into place, where it is retained by the dental implants and supported by the soft tissue. You simply snap the denture out each night for cleaning.
