Dentures - Complete, Partial, & Custom
Age can put a dent in your smile. That’s why, at Enhance Family Dental, we provide complete and partial dentures that are personalized for a comfortable fit and function.
Dentures are prosthetics that are used to replace a large number of missing teeth. These dentures are removable and can be taken and placed back in your mouth. Although nothing can compare to your natural teeth, dentures at Enhance Family Dental are more comfortable and natural looking than ever.
Types of Dentures
Full or Complete Dentures
A complete denture is made for you if you have lost all your natural teeth or your existing teeth are too damaged to be restored and need to be extracted. If your teeth are extracted, it may take months for your gums to heal, during which you will be given a set of immediate dentures.
Immediate Full Dentures
Immediate dentures are inserted in your mouth immediately after your teeth have been removed. The measurements for these dentures take place during a prior visit at Enhance Family Dental so that when you come for your extraction, you do not leave without teeth.
Partial dentures are fitted when your mouth still retains some of its natural teeth. These dentures are anchored to a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. In some cases, crowns are placed on your natural teeth, and the framework is attached to them. Partial dentures are removable options to dental bridges.
How Dentures Work
Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit your mouth. Complete dentures consist of an acrylic resin base that molds to your gum. The denture for your upper arch covers the roof of your mouth while the lower denture is horseshoe-shaped to allow for the free movement of the tongue.
How To Maintain Your Dentures
Removable complete or partial dentures need to be cleaned and stored properly to ensure they give you the best functionality and smile. To maintain your denture:
Make sure you always arrive at your scheduled dental check-ups. This will enable us to check to see if your dentures have any issues and if your mouth is healthy.
