Conventional partial dentures and dentures can be difficult to wear, making chewing difficult. The discovery of implant technology and the birth of implant dentistry has revolutionized the way missing teeth and loose dentures have been treated. Dental implants improve quality of life by improving the way we chew and smile. Patients who wear dentures are able to get their teeth back with dental implants.

Dental implant success rates have steadily improved, upwards of nearly 96 percent. Standard dental implants as well as mini dental implants have been helping patients achieve their dental goals for years and have proven to stand the test of time.

Most dental implants are successful, and there are a few steps you can take to help ensure success and make your implant last.

  • Practice good oral hygiene – brush twice a day and floss once daily. Using interdental brushes, brushes that slide between teeth, can help clean the hard to reach areas around your implant.
  • Quit smoking – smoking can weaken the bone structure and can contribute to implant failure.
  • Visit your dentist – cleanings and exams every six months can help ensure your implant is in good condition, and that it stays that way.
  • Avoid chewing on hard foods – don’t chew on hard items such as ice and hard candy because they can break the crown and your natural teeth.

If you suffer from dental disease, malnutrition, or genetic disorders, you may need your teeth extracted by a professional. Losing your permanent teeth may seem devastating but dentures provide a second chance at a wonderful smile!

Your facial structure and speech will improve once you are suited with complete dentures, and chewing food will become easy once again. Immediate dentures give you a full set of pseudo-teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and bone to realign. No matter what option you go with, we’ll ensure your replacement teeth are natural-looking and match your facial structure.

It’s possible you may not need a full set of dentures. Partial dentures can replace any amount of missing teeth necessary and fasten to your remaining teeth using clasps. Dentures have come a long way, as today’s dentures are natural-looking and comfortable. We offer many other solutions to your dental problems with partial dentures and mini dental implants.

We will customize your dentures to fit your unique bone structure and facial shape, that look and feel great! Once a full set of teeth is removed, the process for the gums to heal and the bone to realign will take up to 6 months. Having a full set of immediate dentures during this time would be an excellent option.

Full Denture

An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patients jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.

And even if you wear full dentures, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly to maintain your overall oral health and get early warning of serious issues such as oral cancer.

Your dentures were made to fit you precisely and, if they are cared for properly, they do not change shape. But you may sometimes find that they can become loose due to natural changes in the gums and bone supporting them. As the jawbone begins to shrink, so do the gums.
If you find your dentures no longer fit properly, see your dentist as soon as possible so adjustments can be made. Trying to change the fit of your dentures yourself can damage them and make them unrepairable so this would be a costly experiment!
Ill-fitting dentures repaired at home can also irritate the gums, tongue and cheeks.
In an emergency, you could use denture adhesives to keep the dentures stable until you are able to see the dentist.

Partials

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. Partial dentures can be very stable, especially when supported by natural teeth on either side. And because they are removable, it’s easy to keep clean.

A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework to hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. A fixed bridge replaces one or more teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. This “bridge” is then cemented into place.

Missing teeth can also speed up bone loss and put the health of your gums and remaining teeth at risk. In order to prevent these issues from occurring, it is important to replace missing teeth quickly.

Partial dentures are an excellent and cost effective solution if you need to replace multiple missing teeth. At your initial consultation, your dentist will let you know whether partial dentures can be an effective tooth replacement option for you.

Overdentures

People with multiple or all of their teeth missing typically have complete or partial dentures; this treatment option is called Overdentures.

Overdentures are replacement teeth retained by dental implants. Overdentures were developed to help both partial and fully edentulous patients regain a quality of life, which most likely has been missing since they lost their teeth.

Overdentures offer a variety of advantages as compared to conventional dentures. While some of these advantages are purely cosmetic, all of these can affect your quality of life, making you happier and healthier.

An implant-retained overdenture can help stop the deterioration of your natural facial contours. Keeping this bone alive and stimulated is the only way to halt the resorption that naturally occurs in areas where your natural teeth have been lost.

Denture Reline

New dentures will typically fit your mouth securely as they have been designed specifically for your gums. However as time goes on, your gum tissues will change and the fit of the denture will become more loose and more prone to movement inside your mouth. Having the denture professionally relined will help keep everything both secure and functional.

Soft Reline

Some patients are unable to wear ordinary dentures because of tender gums or sore spots. You may recommended reline the denture with a material that stays pliable for one to two years before needing replacement. Such a material is much less likely to give the patient sore spots than the standard hard reline acrylic. Patients experiencing these problems may also consider a more permanent solution of implant retained dentures.

Temporary Relines

If dentures haven’t been serviced in a long time, a patient’s gums may be red, swollen, or misshapen. This creates problems in taking impressions for a new hard or soft reline and may lead to a denture that would extend or enhance the problem.

A temporary, medicated reline material may be recommended to allow the inflammation to subside. This reline makes the denture fit much more tightly, and is usually soft and pliable. After a few weeks, the gums return to a more normal state. The patient is then ready for his or her new denture.

Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives.

Oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation. Regardless of the type of sedation dentistry you receive, it is important to have a responsible caregiver accompany you to the procedure. The caregiver should drive you home after the procedure is complete and stay with you for an additional two to four hours at home.

Oral

Oral sedation is a higher level of sedation – more powerful than laughing gas, but not as powerful as IV sedation. We administer oral sedation by giving you a pill, which you take before your dental appointment. You will remain conscious throughout and can respond to questions, but you won’t be as aware of what’s going on. After your dental appointment, you’ll have little memory of it.

Oral sedation is great for more complex procedures and is also effective for people who may have a fear of the dentist, or those with a strong gag reflex. It may also help those who have difficulty keeping their mouth open or have a physical disability that makes it difficult to tolerate dental treatment.

IV

Intravenous sedation, or sometimes referred to as “twilight sleep,” is a type of anesthesia that relaxes a patient through an intravenous (IV) placed in a vein. Depending on the surgical procedure, the amount of anesthesia used may range from a minimal amount, just enough to make a patient drowsy, to an amount deep enough that the patient may not remember the procedure at all.

Invisalign clear aligners are made of invisible plastic. Rather than being cemented or bonded to the teeth like metal or clear braces, the clear aligners are completely removable for things like eating, special occasions, and most importantly brushing and flossing. There are many advantages to Invisalign:

  • Improved Oral Hygiene: With an orthodontic appliance that is removable, you will be able to clean your teeth much more easily than if you were wearing metal braces.
  • A Discreet Look: If you consider your orthodontic treatment to be a private matter, or simply feel that metal braces don’t fit with your self-image, a practically invisible form of orthodontic treatment might suit you.
  • More Dietary Choices: To protect metal wires and braces, some diet modifications are necessary. With clear aligners, you can still bite into an apple or a crispy pizza crust.
  • Comfort: The thin, flexible material of which Invisalign is made will not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth, as metal wires and braces can.
  • Teeth-Grinding Protection: If you have a teeth-grinding or clenching habit, clear aligners can function as thin nightguards that will protect your teeth from excessive wear.

How It Works

Invisalign clear aligners work the same way that traditional braces do. They apply carefully controlled forces to move your teeth into a better position without using metal wires. The plastic trays are specially designed to fit your teeth, and will slowly move the teeth from their current positions to the best possible alignment. This process is broken down into a few different stages, where you will have a different set of trays for each stage. Usually each stage lasts a few weeks, and you are advised to wear your trays for a minimum for about 20 hours per day. After each stage, you will receive a new set of trays and repeat this process for gradual movement of your teeth. This will continue until your teeth are perfectly realigned.

Invisalign has even added features to the trays for teenagers like spacing for molars that have not grown in yet and compliance indicators that allows the dentist and the patient to see if the trays are being worn for the appropriate amount of time.
