Complete Denture Services at Lilac Family Dentistry
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial profile, eat properly and speak well. They can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth (partial dentures) or all of the teeth (full dentures).
Types of Dentures:
Dr. Maralani will use full dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, if you are missing a whole jaw of teeth.
You can have them fitted for your upper or lower gums, and they are held in place by suction and/or with the help of an oral adhesive.
Dr. Maralani will use partial dentures if you are missing more than a few missing teeth, or if your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a dental bridge.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth or a tooth replacement like a dental crown.
They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
Implant Supported Dentures
If there is not enough gum tissue to support full dentures, dental implants may be used to help stabilize the dentures for a secure fit.
