Why Choose Dentures?
If you have experienced permanent tooth loss, you know the pain, discomfort and embarrassment that can come from having an incomplete smile. At Baylee Dental, we believe that everyone deserves high-quality care that will make them feel proud to wear their smile every day. That is why we offer full, partial and implant-supported dentures to patients who have lost several teeth, and those who have experienced complete tooth loss.
Tooth loss does not only have an effect on the aesthetics of your smile, but can also affect your long-term oral health. It is imperative that patients who experience tooth loss seek a long-lasting solution. Dentures are an effective, affordable treatment that can help patients maintain the health and beauty of their smile.
What are the types of dentures?
Partial Dentures. Conventional Partial dentures are an option for patients who are missing several teeth, but not all of them. These dentures are held in place by the surrounding healthy teeth in the mouth and are removable. These dentures may have a metal framework and a clasp that links onto the existing teeth.
Precision Partial Denture is a tooth replacement appliance that stays in place by attaching to one or more permanent crown. Generally, precision partial dentures show no metal when you smile and attach to crowns using a number of different precision devices that are very long lasting.
Full Dentures are removable, artificial teeth made for individuals who have lost several, or all of their teeth. Dentures fit comfortable over your gums and are a stable solution for patients who have lost teeth, whether due to periodontal disease, oral infection or accidents/injuries. Dentures stay in comfortable throughout the day, including while eating and drinking, and can be removed at night to be cleaned, as well as care for the health of the gums. Patients can be fitted for top dentures, bottom dentures, or both.
Implant-Supported Dentures, give you greater stability and less fear of embarrassing denture slips. You’ll experience more freedom with your tooth replacement than ever before. Dentures supported by dental implants, virtually eliminate all of the typical problems associated with dentures. Implant-supported dentures make a great option for those who need to replace multiple teeth and want the strength, function, and flexibility of healthy natural teeth. Implant-supported dentures are held in place by a dental implant, which is surgically placed in the gums. Implant-supported dentures offer patients peace of mind that their dentures will stay in place, and they offer a number of health benefits including reduced risk of gum recession and/or bone deterioration.
It should be noted that not all patients are candidates for implant-supported dentures. In order to receive this treatment, patients must have bones that can support the implant. Those individuals who do not have enough bone structure, or have bone structure that has been infected, may not be good candidates for implant-supported dentures.
