Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures, also known as conventional dentures, are designed primarily for functional purposes. They are typically made from acrylic or resin and are designed to fit the contours of the patient’s mouth. Traditional dentures are made to be comfortable and functional, but aesthetics may not be the primary concern.

Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic dentures are designed to look more natural and aesthetically pleasing. They are often made with higher quality materials and are designed to match the shape, size, and color of the patient’s existing teeth. Cosmetic dentures may also feature more advanced features, such as snap-on dentures, which provide a more secure and stable fit.

  • How do I clean dentures?

    Proper care is essential for maintaining the cleanliness, appearance, and longevity of traditional removable dentures. Below are some guidelines for cleaning and maintenance, as well as some things to avoid when using them:

    • After eating, remove and rinse your dentures by running water over them to get rid of any food debris.
    • Be gentle when cleaning your dentures, and avoid bending or damaging the plastic or clasps.
    • After removing your dentures, clean your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
    • Brush your dentures at least once a day, and soak them in a non-abrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque, and other deposits.
    • Soak your dentures overnight in a mild denture-soaking solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
    • Schedule regular dental checkups to ensure a proper fit, prevent slippage and discomfort.
    • Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials, whitening toothpaste, products containing bleach on your dentures, and hot or boiling water that could warp them.
  • What are full dentures?

    Dental conditions such as tooth decay or gum disease can become unmanageable, and may lead to the removal of remaining teeth on one or both jaws. In such cases, full dentures can be an economical and efficient solution to restore your smile.

    A complete denture is made up of a thin acrylic base that rests on the gum tissue and matches the color of your gums. The base contains porcelain or acrylic replacement teeth that give the appearance of natural teeth emerging from the gums. Our experienced staff can assist you in selecting the teeth that look most natural and complement your smile. This provides you with the option to customize your appearance, whether you want a “new” smile or simply want to restore your original one.

    Dental implants can be used to secure dentures more firmly to your jaw. These implants are placed in the jaw and connected to the base of the denture. This connection can be designed to permanently fix the denture in place or allow for easy removal. Implant-supported dentures not only provide greater retention and a more natural look, but they also tend to last longer. Your dentist can discuss these options with you and help you understand how they can improve your experience with dentures.

  • What are partial dentures?

    Partial dentures are an affordable solution to replace missing teeth and fill in gaps, improving your ability to chew and smile with confidence. They also help prevent natural teeth from shifting, reducing the risk of losing them in the future.

    Typically, partial dentures consist of a thin metal framework that rests near your gums, providing a comfortable, non-bulky feel. The framework is reinforced by your remaining natural teeth, making it a secure and reliable appliance that is easy to use. Replacement teeth that look natural are attached to the frame where teeth are missing, and gum-colored acrylic is used to blend the appliance with your mouth. Because everyone’s mouth is different, your dentist will work with skilled technicians to create a customized solution that is comfortable for you.

    With advancements in technology, implants can also be used to support removable partial dentures, improving the fit and reducing the size of the appliance. However, it’s important to note that dentures can come with some challenges, particularly for new wearers. Our goal is to minimize any everyday frustrations as much as possible.
