What are dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Conventional dentures are removable. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Are there different types of dentures?
Dental Studio of Jersey City offers several treatment options for dentures, such as:
- Dental implants and crowns
- Denture relines
- Partial dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
Your custom dentures are typically created in a dental lab.
Standard full dentures involve a full set of upper and lower teeth. Standard full dentures are made from a pliable material and use suction to remain in place.
Instead of replacing an entire set, partial dentures replace a limited number of teeth. Your remaining teeth and gums support your partial dentures.
Cosmetic dentures are typically made from a special acrylic base that helps prevent the denture from shrinking or warping out of shape. Cosmetic dentures are specially and carefully designed to look as natural and aesthetically beautiful as possible. Advanced cosmetic dentures typically rest on or snap onto a dental implant.
To replace your natural tooth root, your dentist surgically fuses a dental implant to your jawbone and securely attaches your new dentures onto your dental implants.
Which type of denture is right for me?
During your visit to Dental Studio of Jersey City, your dentist explains your various options and helps you determine what’s best. For example, if you only have a few missing teeth, you might choose partial removable dentures that can attach onto your natural teeth.
If you need to replace all of your upper or lower teeth, you might decide on full or complete dentures.
You might have a denture with a metal framework and natural-looking connectors or clasps that attach to your teeth. In some instances, to improve the fit of your new removable denture, your dentist might need to place crowns, typically with special attachments, on your natural teeth.
Dental implants are also a great option to stabilize and secure your custom dentures.
