- Complete (full) denture
- Implant retained complete (full) denture
- Removable partial denture
When a patient has no teeth in either one or both jaws, a Removable Complete (Full) Denture is routinely used to restore the health of the mouth. An arch devoid of teeth severely affects one’s speech, ability to eat a variety of foods (thus negatively impacting their health), and makes one appear older. This prosthesis, made from acrylic (and using either acrylic or porcelain teeth), is custom-made and colour-matched for your mouth alone that gives you back your smile, provides you with a more youthful-looking face, and a restores a reasonable measure of the function you had with your natural teeth.
When a patient has a severely atrophied jaw, or when a conventional full denture is too unstable, an implant-retained denture may be the better solution. Such an appliance provides significantly increased stability, function, and patient comfort.
A Removable Partial Denture (or “Partial”) is an appliance used to replace one or more missing spaces in an arch. Typically made of a metal framework with acrylic (and using acrylic, porcelain, or metal prosthetic teeth), this prosthesis is designed with clasps that anchor onto the existing teeth to hold it in place.
