What are Full Dentures?
Complete dentures are great for people who are missing all their teeth either on the upper or lower jaw, or both. It’s made of acrylic resin material that mimics the natural appearance of your gums and teeth. When worn inside the mouth, full denture gives the appearance of a beautiful, natural full dentition!
What are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are great for those missing a few teeth. Partial dentures are made of a combination of metal and acrylic resin material, or completely in acrylic resin. Like full dentures, it mimics the natural appearance of the missing teeth and gums. A partial denture uses the remaining healthy teeth as an anchor to stabilize the appliance in place. It’s a great alternative to dental implants especially if you’re missing a few teeth in a row.
What are Flippers?
Dental flippers are typically temporary appliances to replace missing teeth while we wait for a more permanent appliance like dental implants or full dentures. Dental flipper is a great option for those who are waiting for a dental implant to heal but don’t want to go 4-6 months with a missing tooth, or for those wanting to delay treatment for financial reasons. Our patients love flippers because are small and lightweight in nature!
What are Immediate Dentures?
Immediate Dentures are dentures that are delivered immediately after your teeth extraction. It’s a great option for those don’t want to go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made ahead of time and are delivered after you get your teeth extracted.
