Are you missing rows or arches of teeth? Do you have an old or faulty denture? At John D. Verville Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we provide full and partial dentures that restore the smile’s appearance and function. Dentures are dental restorations that restore rows or arches of lost permanent teeth. With high-quality dentures, patients can speak and eat comfortably and combat problems like facial sagging. We can create dentures for patients in Fleming Island, FL, and the surrounding areas who need a more functional, aesthetic smile.
Partial vs. Complete Dentures
Dentures can be partial or complete. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in different areas of the mouth. Additionally, partials do not replace all of the natural teeth. They are typically removable prostheses made of false teeth on a gum-colored base. However, if there are few teeth left in the mouth that do not benefit your oral health, we may recommend an extraction. We can replace full arches of teeth with complete dentures. Complete or full dentures are also traditionally removable.
However, dental implants can create longer-lasting, more stable dentures. Before we place a denture, we can place implants that secure the restoration at the root. Dental implants are titanium posts that create
Dentures in Fleming Island, FL
Like other restorative care, we must ensure that patients are healthy enough for treatment. We will check for problems like tooth decay and gum disease prior to treatment. Additionally, if patients require extractions, it will take time to heal before we begin crafting the denture.
First, we take dental impressions to create a conventional set of temporary dentures. Then, we place the dental implants. The implants fuse with the jaw bone over a period of 3 to 6 months to create a stable foundation for the dentures. Then, we take impressions for the permanent dentures. Once the implants are healed, and the permanent dentures are complete, we attach the prosthetic teeth to the implants.
