Dentures

  • Dentures isolated on a white background.

If you have lost one or more permanent teeth due to accident, illness, dental disease, or aging, removable partial or full denture replacement can be a good option.

The advantages of removable full and partial dentures include improved chewing ability, improved speech, improved aesthetic appearance and improved oral health.

Removable Full and Partial Denture Treatment Process

Dr. McChristian will take an impression of your teeth and jaw alignment and match your dentures to the color and shape of your teeth. Temporary dentures can be provided to patients transitioning from failing teeth to dentures. Your dentures will be made of a ceramic or ceramic-like material, so they will be strong and durable. The base of the denture is made of acrylic which fits comfortably over the gums.

For patients transitioning to a full denture, the denture is created after all remaining teeth have been removed and the gums have healed, a process that takes around 3 months.

For patients receiving removable partial dentures, replacement teeth are bonded to a gum-colored base, which is attached to a metal framework – this framework holds on to the natural teeth on either side of the empty space. Some alteration of remaining teeth is usually necessary before the impression is taken to make the removable partial denture.
