Types of Full Dentures
We provide several types of Full (complete) dentures at our clinic. They range from basic to premium up to a full mouth dental implant restoration. For the average patient, Standard dentures fit comfortably and are good for chewing. They are designed using basic tooth shades, shapes and standard quality materials. Some patients with oral tissues that have shrunk, or those who have an unusual bite may need a personalized denture that utilizes premium materials and precision techniques. Premium personalized dentures combine comfort, fit, esthetics, and function to create the most natural smile and provide optimum function while eating, speaking and laughing.
We use specialized instruments to record the impressions of your jaw, the specific jaw movements you make, and any anatomical information that may affect the fit and function of your new dentures. This is confirmed during a try-in session. We will work together to try to restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles to give you back your natural smile!
Non-staining composite resin teeth are used. Currently number 1 in hardness, with very high wear resistance. This type of prosthesis is manufactured with Diamond D ultra-impact acrylic. This results in 6% dimensional shrinkage which makes it the second-best prosthetic option. Dentures will have increased resistance to cracks and plaque build-up.
APPLE NeatFit ™ Dentures
We combine most advanced techniques and materials to create our very own APPLE NeatFit ™ lines of dentures which provide even higher satisfaction rate compared to Precision dentures. In this type of prosthesis we use Phonares II Nano-hybrid composite denture teeth – the most advanced denture teeth on the market. This type of prosthesis is fabricated using the Ivoclar Injected Ultra-impact acrylic which results in less than 1% dimensional shrinkage that offers extra-precise fit. You will get the most naturally-looking and comfortable-fitting denture compared with Standard and Precision dentures.
Suction Dentures (SEMCD)
Suction dentures offer an improved fit of the full lower denture – known typically to be very unstable. We utilize the soft tissues of your mouth, including all of the muscles you use to chew, smile, laugh, swallow, etc. to build a profile of the movements your mouth makes when generating the shape of the denture. This ensures your denture stays put during your dinners and dances!
Implant dentures is a step above Precision and Suction dentures and bring comfort and chewing ability to the next level! Having 2 or more implants helping you secure your denture in place will make a revolution not only in your mouth, but in your confidence, allowing you to chew the foods you love without pain and embarrassment.
