Type of Dentures
Conventional Dentures Dental Center –Complete dentures are used when all the teeth in upper and lower jaws are missing. These dentures remain in place by firm fitting to the gum ridges. These dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 2 to 4 weeks after the teeth have been removed.
Implant dentures or Implant supported overdentures is a denture that uses precision dental attachments to hold the denture down. The overdenture attachment can be placed in tooth roots that have been saved, or placed into dental implants which have been placed to receive them.
Immediate Dentures at Dental Center –
Immediate dentures are constructed before teeth are removed so that you will not be without any teeth. Constructing immediate dentures involves taking impressions (making copies) of your mouth before the teeth are removed. When your remaining teeth are removed the denture can be inserted immediately. Bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period and compared with conventional dentures, these dentures require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made..
What is a Partial Denture ?
Partial Denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth. Unlike a bridge, which is fixed in the mouth, these dentures can be removed for cleaning and left out while the patient sleeps. These dentures attaches to your natural teeth with metal or acrylic clasps or it can be attached to the teeth with crowns with precision attachments. These clasps are hook-like structures that help hold it in place.
This is a new flexible denture base material, which reduces the chair time and eliminates the cumbersome materials associated with rigid partials. Thus making a better and stronger appliance. This flexible material design is perfect, as it has to adapt on a flexible environment in contrast with rigid metal-based R.P.D. where rigid material has to adapt on a flexible environment.
Cast Partial Dentures at Dental Center, A removable partial denture can be made of acrylic (plastic like material) or a combination of acrylic with metallic framework. The metallic framework is usually made of cast metal. The metal used is chrome cobalt alloy. These metallic dentures or cast partial dentures are much superior to the regular acrylic dentures. Vitallium 2000 Plus is the new standard for premium chrome cobalt alloys. This alloy provides physical and mechanical properties never before attainable in chrome cobalt alloys.
