Dentures Clinic in San Jose, CA
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable replacement for teeth that are missing in the patient's mouth. These replacements are natural looking and are comfortable for the patient as well. The dentures are supported by soft and hard tissues in the mouth. There are two types of dentures that are provided to patients depending upon their requirements. Complete dentures are needed in cases where the patient is missing all of their teeth. Partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing and the patient has most of their natural teeth intact.
What are the Different Types of Dentures?
- Immediate dentures are required when all the patient's teeth need to be extracted. This procedure begins before the patient's teeth are to be extracted. These dentures are custom-made in order to properly fit the patient.
- Implant retained dentures are placed in the patient's mouth when they lose a tooth or a number of teeth.
- Ball Attachment Denture is when two implants are placed in the jaw and a denture is snapped onto these implants. This denture is very stable and does not move out of place very easily. This denture still needs to be removed for regular cleanings.
- Screw Retained Dentures are made up of multiple implants in the patient's jaw to which a permanent denture is attached. This denture is secure since it is attached to screws in the patient's jaw.
What are the Benefits of Dentures?
