Dentures are one of the most common treatment methods for dealing with cases of severe tooth loss. When dentures are worn, they provide both the function and appearance of a complete set of healthy natural teeth.
Dentures consist of artificial replacement teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. Thanks to advances in dentistry, the dentures of today are more natural looking, stronger and more dependable than ever before.
Providing patients with top-quality dentures is a priority at Madison Family Dental. We know how important it is to have a reliable set of replacement teeth for patients experiencing the challenges of tooth loss. Our dentures are custom-made from the finest materials available. This helps ensure that they provide great functionality, look natural and last as long as possible.
We offer three types of dentures - fixed dentures, traditional dentures and removable dentures with denture stabilization implants.
Fixed dentures remain permanently secured inside the mouth by using dental implants that are installed in the jawbone through a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Once the fixed dentures have been installed, they cannot be removed except through oral surgery. The main benefit of fixed dentures is that they are extremely stable and steady. Having the dentures permanently secured in place can also help the patient think of them as their permanent set of teeth. And since fixed dentures use dental implants, they feel and function just like natural teeth.
Traditional dentures are a removable appliance that does not rely on dental implants for support. Instead, they grip tightly around the jawbone and the dental arch, using principles of suction to remain in place. Our traditional dentures are designed to appear as natural as possible, and we use high-quality materials so that they function very well. A major benefit of traditional dentures is that no surgery is needed to provide them, which means that the patient will not have to go through any sort of recovery process, and their ability to be removed makes them very easy to clean.
Removable dentures with denture stabilization implants offer the benefits of dental implants, along with the convenience of removable dentures. This setup starts with dental implants that are inserted into the jawbone. A set of natural-looking removable dentures is then secured to these implants. The dentures will provide all of the functions of strong, healthy teeth, but when they need to be cleaned, the dentures can be taken out. The user can reinsert their dentures.
If you are suffering from severe tooth loss, natural-looking dentures may be what you need to get back to enjoying life. Just imagine being able to chew food normally and smile confidently with your very own healthy teeth. Please call us at (201) 468-9884 to schedule an appointment.
