Dentures and Partial Dentures in Eagle, CO
When you hear the word “dentures,” you may still envision the fake-looking false teeth your grandparents and great-grandparents wore. Fortunately, the technology and techniques used to create modern dentures have advanced considerably beyond those days
Today’s dentures appear so natural and fit so securely that most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing an appliance. These removable devices, made of a gum-colored acrylic base with natural-looking artificial teeth, fit snuggly over your gums or are supported by a metal framework for a brand new smile.
Full or partial dentures
Full dentures replace all of the teeth on your entire upper or lower jaw or both, while partials replace one or a few teeth. Whether you need full or partial dentures, they offer the following benefits:
- Boost your confidence by giving you a more attractive smile
- Provide chewing ability and bite strength
- Decrease the chance of developing TMJ
- Prevent facial sagging
- Stop remaining teeth from moving and affecting your alignment
Getting partial dentures in Eagle, CO
When no other restoration treatment can save a tooth or a few teeth, partial dentures can fill the space as a removable appliance or be fixed and supported by implants. Our dentists start the procedure by taking X-rays and impressions of your gums, jaws and any remaining teeth, which are used to create your customized partial dentures. We can provide you with a temporary restoration while you wait.
What to expect with full dentures
Full dentures can be completely supported by dental implants for a much more natural feel and ease of eating, speaking and cleaning. Removable dentures stay in place with special denture adhesive and the body’s natural design. The top set of dentures stays in place by the natural suctioning power in the roof of your mouth, while the muscles in your cheeks, lips and tongue enable the lower set of full dentures to stay in place.
Implant retained dentures
Traditional full dentures can only replace chewing function by 30-40%, and so many patients prefer implant retained dentures to give them back up to 80-90% of their chewing function. This allows our patients to enjoy the foods they love without the dentures rocking or moving.
