Removable Partial and Complete Dentures - Garden Ridge Center For Dentistry

Removable Partial and Complete Dentures

Dentures are a technique to replace teeth that have been lost due to tooth decay, gum disease, injury, or other health related concerns.  No one wants to lose their natural teeth, but partial or full dentures make it possible to chew, speak and smile with confidence again. All removable partial and complete dentures are custom made for each patient, and involve a series of appointments to design and fit the replacement teeth.

The Difference - Garden Ridge Center For Dentistry

The Difference

Removable partial dentures may replace a few, or many teeth. They can be made with a metal framework, or base, or an acrylic base. Removable partial dentures use the remaining natural teeth as anchors, and small wires or clasps are designed to rest on or around teeth for stability. 

Complete dentures replace all of the upper and/or lower teeth. They are made with an acrylic base. Upper dentures cover the palate, or roof of the mouth, to create a seal or suction to stay in place. Lower dentures rest on the lower ridge, and are often supported by two or more dental implants for retention and stability.

Permanent Dentures - Garden Ridge Center For Dentistry

Permanent Dentures

Implant supported dentures come in several designs. For patients that would like a permanent option, four to six implants may be placed and a permanent set of teeth may be attached. This is often referred to as an “All on 4” or “All on 6”. This is a great option to regain chewing function with the strength of natural teeth. Patient’s also gain great confidence and are able to have a cosmetic transformation with this procedure.
