Types Of Dentures
There are two main types of dentures, both of which can be permanently secured with dental implants for the best result:
- Full dentures: a full denture can be fixed or removable, replacing all of the upper or lower arch of teeth.
- Partial dentures: a partial denture replaces several lost teeth and can be fixed using dental implants for a lasting result.
Dentures: What To Expect
The procedure for either full or partial dentures typically involves several visits to our Viera dentist office. The process always begins with dental impressions taken in our office to be used in creating wax models of your new dentures that will be “tried on” at the next visit. This is key for a final restoration that fits comfortably in your mouth and supports your natural face structure.
There will 1-2 additional appointments for color matching and fine tuning the fit of your denture or partial denture before they are finalized and delivered to you.
You can expect an adjustment period during which the soft tissues in your mouth will adapt to your denture and eventually they will feel as comfortable as your natural teeth.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant dentures have a 95% or better success rate and equally high level of patient satisfaction. While this procedure does require a greater initial investment compared to alternatives like removable dentures or bridges, implant dentures offer the best long term benefits:
- Supports bone retention for better overall dental health
- Restores normal chewing function and enables a varied, healthy diet
- Allows patient to speak and smile naturally and comfortably
- No daily maintenance- no glues, adhesives, soaks or rinses.
Dentures, either removable or implant supported are a multi step process from treatment planning to final placement. Dr. Roppa or Dr. Marshall-Roppa will begin your procedure with dental impressions and work with you to fabricate a custom denture that supports improved dental health and complements your natural appearance. Your new smile will be aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and functional.
