Conventional Removable Dentures
Conventional removable dentures are used to replace teeth after all have been removed. Following tooth removal, a temporary, immediate denture may be placed while the gums heal. Once fully healed, a final denture is custom made and formed to your anatomy for a good fit. Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth, making it possible to bite and chew food. Traditional dentures are removable.
Wearing dentures does not mean you no longer need to visit the dentist. It is important to have your dentures inspected for damage, wear and fit. In order to ensure lasting comfort and stability, your conventional dentures should be inspected regularly and adjusted or relined as the contour of your gums changes over time.
Partial dentures are mounted to a metal framework that is supported by to your natural teeth, providing replacement for teeth which have been removed. They are custom designed to match the natural shape and color of your surrounding natural teeth. Partial dentures are a removable alternative to dental implants and bridges.
