Removable dentures, often simply called "dentures," are custom-made dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. They consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that fits onto the gums and supports artificial teeth made from materials like porcelain or acrylic resin.
Removable dentures can be partial, replacing a few missing teeth; or complete, replacing an entire arch of teeth in the upper or lower jaw. These prosthetic devices are secured in place using natural suction, denture adhesives, or precision attachments, allowing them to be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.
At Pro-Dental Care, we offer removable dentures as a practical solution for individuals who have lost teeth, helping them regain the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Overdentures, also known as implant-retained dentures, are a type of removable dental prosthesis designed to provide increased stability and retention compared to traditional removable dentures. They are typically used in cases where a patient has few remaining natural teeth or when existing dentures are not secure enough.
Overdentures are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone, either in the upper or lower arch. These implants serve as stable attachment points for the overdenture, preventing slippage, reducing discomfort, and improving chewing efficiency. Overdentures offer a more secure and comfortable alternative for individuals with extensive tooth loss, significantly enhancing their quality of life and oral function.
As recommended by our dentist in Cave Creek, AZ, partial dentures are custom-designed dental prosthetics used to replace one or more missing teeth in a patient's mouth. These removable appliances consist of a framework that attaches to existing natural teeth or dental crowns, with artificial teeth attached to fill the gaps caused by missing ones.
Partial dentures are carefully crafted to match the patient's natural teeth in color, shape, and alignment, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing appearance. They restore oral function by not only improving chewing and speaking but also helping maintain proper tooth alignment and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. Dentists often recommend partial dentures as an effective and non-invasive solution for patients with limited tooth loss, offering them a functional and comfortable way to regain a complete smile.
Complete dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace the whole upper or lower arch of a patient's teeth. These custom-crafted prosthetics consist of a gum-colored acrylic base designed to sit on the patient's gums and support a complete set of artificial teeth carefully designed to match the patient's natural teeth in appearance and function.
Our dentist in Cave Creek, AZ, recommends full dentures for individuals who have lost all their natural teeth due to extensive decay, gum disease, or injury. These dentures restore a patient's ability to eat, speak, and smile and provide vital support for facial muscles, helping to maintain facial structure and aesthetics.
