Schedule an appointment with Dr. Sujata Basawaraj to find out which type of denture is right for you.
Preparing for Dentures
Before receiving your dental restorations, you will have a complete consultation with Dr. Basawaraj. After reviewing your medical history and carefully examining your oral health, your dentist will help you choose the right type of dentures to meet your aesthetic goals, oral health, and budget. The dentist will also determine whether you require any preparatory work, such as tooth extractions.
Types of Dentures
At Main Dentistry, we offer a wide selection of dentures:
Traditional dentures: Custom-crafted traditional dentures are attached to a pink plastic base that rests on the gums and is held in place with a mild adhesive.
Implant-retained dentures: Implant-retained dentures attached to dental implant posts that are surgically embedded in your jawbone. The denture may snap directly onto the top of the posts, or it may slide onto a bar that goes around your dental arch. These dentures do not slip out of place when you speak, laugh, or chew. Traditional dental implants require two surgeries with up to six months of healing time in between, but they can provide you with a lifetime of confident smiles.
All-on-4® dentures: All-on-4® dentures are a restorative solution that uses four strategically placed mini dental implants to support a full upper- or lower-arch denture. This solution is often recommended when a patient has waited a long period to address missing teeth, and experienced some jaw atrophy as a result. In some cases, mini implants can be placed without the need for a bone graft, and they can be restored with a set of dentures immediately after they have been placed. Our dentist can determine if you are a candidate for All-on-4® dentures.
Partial dentures: If you still have a number of healthy teeth, partial dentures, also called dental bridges, can fill gaps in your smile. They can be supported by adjacent dental crowns or dental implants.
Creating Your Custom Dentures
If you require traditional dentures, our dentist will take impressions of your gums and any remaining healthy teeth, which will be sent to our trusted offsite lab. Technicians will use this information to create your custom dentures. In the meantime, you may be provided with temporary dentures. If you choose implant-supported dentures, impressions will be taken after your jaw has healed following placement surgery. If you are receiving All-on4® dentures, your dentures will be crafted prior to your surgery so they can restore your implants as soon as they have been placed.
