Dentures are removable replacements for teeth that fit over a person’s gums. The base of upper dentures covers the roof of an individual’s mouth, while lower dentures are in a U-shape to accommodate a person’s tongue. Dentures are made in a dental laboratory from impressions a dentist takes of a client’s mouth. These impressions allow the laboratory to create dentures that are the most comfortable and natural-looking for every client. Dentures not only improve a person’s appearance but their health, as well. If you need new dentures or wish to adjust your current dentures, please contact AURA DENTAL. We have successfully fitted numerous clients with all types of dentures.
Types of Dentures
A conventional full denture is a denture placed in a person’s mouth after the rest of the teeth have been removed, and all tissues in the mouth have healed. Immediate full dentures are dentures that are placed instantly in an individual’s mouth after the remainder of their teeth has been removed.
Another type of denture is an implant-supported denture, which, in some cases, may be the best choice. This is a type of over-denture (usually for the lower jaw) that is attached to implants instead of just resting on the gums like traditional dentures. For people who no longer have teeth, but still have enough bone to support the denture, this is the perfect solution. As with all dentures, these are not permanent and should be slept in; however, it could provide you with more stability—allowing you to eat different types of food and the ability to talk without fear of it falling out.
At Elite Implant & Family Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art technology and updated materials to create natural and comfortable dentures for every client. Our team will sit down with clients to discuss the different types of dentures, and which type is best for them. Our office participates in many insurance plans, and we offer affordable dental payment plans for clients who do not have insurance.
