Are you missing full rows or arches of permanent teeth? Do you need a long-lasting dental restoration for your smile? Ask us about treatment with dentures. Dentures are dental prosthetics that restore rows or arches of lost teeth. Dentures may be full or partial. Partial dentures replace consecutive missing teeth. Full or complete dentures restore upper and/or lower arches of teeth. Sometimes patients can receive removable partial dentures in the form of the Snap-On Smile. This appliance snaps onto the natural teeth. If you want to fully restore the function and look of your smile, call our dental office for dentures in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
Removable and Implant-Supported Dentures
Traditional removable dentures need to be removed and cleaned daily. They often require messy adhesives to stay in place, although they can still slip around the mouth. Removable dentures also lie on top of the gums and do not support the health of the gum or bone tissue. Implant-secured dentures support missing teeth by replacing them at the root. Dental implants stabilize dentures and allow patients to fully bite and chew. Implant-supported dentures do not have any dietary restrictions and look and feel just like natural teeth.
Denture Treatment in Rehoboth Beach, DE
Before treatment, we always make sure that our patients are in good physical and oral health. Patients who receive implant dentures will need enough bone tissue to support the implant posts. We will recommend bone grafting or ridge augmentation as needed.
To begin, we take digital impressions and scans of the smile. We use this dental technology to determine where to place the implants or attach the prosthetic. For patients receiving implants, our oral surgeon will place the implant posts underneath the gums and in the jaw bone. Patients will need to wait for 3 to 6 months for the implants to fully fuse to the jaw bone. Additionally, we will provide patients with temporary dentures as their permanent dentures are being made. Then, we attach the final prosthetic to the implants. We make sure that the permanent denture feels comfortable and fits properly.
Our dental office can also provide immediate dentures for patients after their tooth extraction treatment. We will let you know if you are a candidate for this treatment, as some patients may require additional care before they receive dentures.
