Dentures

Removable Complete Dentures

Dentures are the obvious choice for someone who has already lost all of their teeth. The fitting process begins with impressions being taken of the upper and lower gums to make a form-fitting denture plate for each. A series of follow-up appointments are necessary to make any needed adjustments. This is important to ensure a proper fit when speaking and eating, as well as when at rest. 

Removable Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a type of dental prosthetic which is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Some partial dentures are designed to be installed and worn permanently, while others are removable. Removable partial dentures, also known as RPDs, are designed to be taken out and cared for by the patient.

Fixed Partial Dentures

A fixed partial denture is a prosthetic dental restoration, or filling, that is binded permanently to tooth roots, dental implants, or natural teeth. It is used to fill in spans, or gaps, caused by one or more missing teeth. The lay term for a fixed partial denture is “bridge,” because its function is to “bridge” the space between teeth.
