What are Dentures?

When Dr. McNew suggests getting dentures, she could be referring to full dentures, partial dentures, or implant-supported dentures:

  • Full dentures consist of an entire arch of false teeth that have been attached to a gum colored base. They sit on the gums and can be held in place by suction or an adhesive.
  • Partial dentures need to be uniquely designed so that they can replace teeth in specific areas of the mouth. This type of restoration has a metal framework and is attached to the teeth by a clasp.
  • Implant-supported dentures are non-removable dentures that are supported and retained by implants.

Dental Implant-Retained Dentures

Whenever possible, we’d recommend getting dentures that have been attached to implants. As useful as regular dentures can be, they only replace the crowns of your teeth. Dental implants, however, will act as new tooth roots. Whenever you bite or chew, the implants will stimulate the jaw, keeping it healthy reducing the risk of bone loss later in life. Furthermore, the posts will hold your dentures in place and allow you to successfully chew all your favorite foods again.


Snap-On Smile

Are you having trouble imagining what your new smile will look like? We can give you a trial denture called a Snap-On Smile that you can wear until your permanent restoration is ready. Not only will this let you enjoy an enhanced grin far sooner than you might have otherwise, but it also gives you a chance to get used to the shape and function of a new arch of teeth. A Snap-On Smile can also be used before a full arch of crowns is placed.
