Tooth loss can affect almost every aspect of your life. If you have suffered from tooth loss or have been told that you need multiple tooth extractions, then complete dentures or partials may be a great tooth replacement option for you. Gone are the fake-looking dentures of the past – with today’s dentures, no one will need to know that you have false teeth. At Martin Taylor Dentistry, patients in the Tucson, AZ area receive compassionate, comprehensive care throughout the entire process – from the initial consultation through follow-up visits to help ensure you are adjusting well to your new smile.
Types of dentures
Thanks to advances in dental materials and techniques, there are many different types of dentures to suit a wide variety of oral health needs and preferences. Dentures are an economical option for patients missing any number of teeth: complete dentures replace a full arch of teeth, whereas partial dentures replace one or a few missing teeth in an arch. The process for creating and placing your dentures will depend on the type you choose:
- Removable complete dentures are held in place in your mouth with natural suction, and in some cases, denture adhesive
- Removable partial dentures are created for one or multiple missing teeth, and usually clip onto your natural teeth for support
- Implant-supported dentures (sometimes called “permanent dentures”) are a terrific way to provide extra stability for your dentures; dental implants are placed in strategic locations in your mouth, where they fuse with your jawbone, and then the dentures are placed over the implants
- Immediate dentures are an option for patients who will be having extractions done; impressions and denture fabrication are done before your extractions take place, and you walk out of the office on the day of your extractions with your new dentures so you don’t have to go for any period without teeth
