What Types Of Dentures Are There?

Removable Full Dentures

This type of denture is used to replace a full arch (top or bottom jaw) when you lose all your teeth. A full denture is removable and can be taken out at night to clean.

Implant-supported Dentures

A type of denture that is anchored to your jaw with dental implants. Also known as fixed dentures or Teeth-in-a-Day, this type of denture requires jaw surgery.

Partial Dentures

A type of removable denture that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It sits on a lightweight metal frame and sits comfortably in your mouth to fill the gap in your smile.

Implant-supported Partials

Also known as a fixed or implant bridge, this type of denture snaps into place using a dental implant.

Frequently Asked Questions

It takes a few weeks for your mouth to adjust to your dentures. Your gums will feel tender and it will take some time to get used to eating. If you need your remaining teeth pulled prior to receiving dentures, this procedure will require a period of healing as well. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to reduce your discomfort while you heal. Should you experience any issues with your dentures, be sure to call our office right away for a follow-up.
