Complete and Partial Dentures
$99 New Patient Special! Cleaning, Exam, and X-Rays
Over time, the beauty and health of our mouths can be degraded by plaque and many other factors. Often, that leads individuals to require dentures to restore their smiles with dentures from Woodland Park Dentistry. Our office offers expertly made dentures that are easily removable replacements for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Under the care of our team, they can enhance the cosmetic appeal of one’s smile as well as restoring various oral functions.
There are two main types of dentures available — complete dentures and partial dentures:
- Complete Dentures – These can be utilized when all teeth are missing. They are made of a plastic base that is colored to replicated gum tissue. The base can support a full set of plastic or porcelain teeth.
- Partial Dentures – These are used when some natural teeth remain. They might even constitute a single tooth denture. Denture partials can be made with a plastic base or a metal framework that is designed to support the number of teeth that need to be replaced. Because of its rigidity and strength, a metal framework is usually used for partial dentures.
When complete and partial dentures are fitted by our team at Woodland Park Dentistry, patients can look forward to dentures that are designed to closely resemble natural teeth. This ensures that there is little to no change in appearance. In fact, in many cases, our patients, whether they are interested in dentures, or some other kind of assistance, find their smile is substantially improved after receiving dentures.
Conventional Dentures vs. Immediate Dentures
Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. Immediate dentures involve taking impressions of teeth in advance, so that you don’t have to go without teeth for any length of time. In either case, patients at Woodland Park Dentistry can expect the best possible dental treatment.
With proper care, dentures should last at least five years. With expertly crafted dentures from our team you can always expect your top-quality dentures to remain effective for as long as possible. If you’re in need of complete or partial dentures, or any number of other dental treatments, don’t hesitate to contact our team of experienced and caring dental professionals.
