A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. There are two types of dentures, complete (full) and partial dentures.
Complete (Full) Dentures are made after all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. The denture includes an acrylic base that is custom made in the dental laboratory and are made to look like natural gums, which sits over the gums or can be anchored to dental implants. The final product is a handmade, highly esthetic and functional customized product for each individual patient.
Removable Partial Dentures are made only when a few teeth need to be replaced. The removable partial denture either attaches to crowns on either side of the denture or to a metal framework that is attached to the teeth on both sides of the removable partial denture. Removable partial dentures can be supported in place by attaching them to dental implants when wearing them during the day. The final product is a handmade, highly aesthetic and functional customized product for each individual patient.
If a patient is missing some or all of their permanent natural teeth, Dr. Christopher Di Turi might suggest removable dentures to replace the missing teeth.
