Dentures (Including Overdentures and Partials)
If you’ve lost many or all of your teeth, you will want to replace them. There are several types of dentures that are available at our office.
Removable Partial Dentures
Partials look like replacement teeth that are attached to a pink plastic base. Dr. Martin can design the right partial specifically for your needs. Partials have metal frameworks and clasps that connect to your natural teeth. Sometimes a crown will be needed to give you a stable place to attach your bridge. Dr. Martin shows you how to care for and wear your unique partial.
Full dentures are a complete set of teeth made to replace a person’s natural teeth. These created teeth stay in your mouth with suction and sometimes the assistance of denture products that help dentures remain securely in the mouth. Several fittings may be needed to get the dentures to fit just right in your mouth.
Overdentures fit over existing natural teeth or overdenture implants. This type of denture becomes attached to the mouth using different dental attachments secured to the implants or roots of teeth. Overdentures remain an excellent choice for individuals who need the majority of their teeth replaced.
Dr. Chris Martin can answer all your questions about dentures during a consultation.
