Do you have extremely damaged or missing teeth? Complete Dental Leland may be able to help with our customized dentures. Whether you are missing all of your teeth or have some left, we can create a custom denture perfect for your needs. If dentures aren’t exactly what you are looking for, dental implants are a new dental technology capable of restoring your smile, youthful look and preventing more bone loss.
Dentures are a removable dental appliance that replaces natural teeth and gum tissue. They provide support for your lips and cheeks and can help restore a more youthful appearance. Dentures can also improve a patient’s ability to eat and speak properly. There are a few different types of dentures that can be better for specific needs, some common dentures are:
Complete dentures are made to replace all the teeth on your top jaw, bottom jaw or both. Complete dentures are custom for each patient and are made to fit your mouth perfectly. Although they are one of the most affordable solutions, they may have to be replaced due to bone loss caused by missing teeth.
Partial dentures are an option for patients who have remaining teeth, they can either be removable or permanent depending on your preference. The permanent partial denture can be bonded to crowns placed over remaining natural teeth. Removable partials have clasps which attach the partial to crowns placed on existing teeth.
Implant supported dentures are typically used for patients that do not have any teeth remaining but have bone which can support dental implants. Dental implants would have to be placed before the implant supported denture could be made. They are attached to the implants to provide support.
