Removable Partial Dentures

Though dental implants remain the most effective way to replace missing teeth, not everyone is a candidate for the procedure and it might not be within your budget. Removable partial dentures can be an economical option if you still have some teeth remaining in your jaw. Dr. Morgan uses the latest technology and materials to ensure they’re as natural looking and comfortable as possible.

Types of Partial Dentures

TRADITIONAL REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES

Traditional partial dentures consist of replacement teeth that are embedded in a gum-colored base. The base is attached to a metal or gum-colored framework that has clasps that secure the device to your teeth. The main advantage of this type of appliance is that it can replace multiple teeth and is less expensive than a dental bridge. The disadvantages are that it’s not as stable as a bridge or implants and if the framework is metal, it won’t be completely concealed. While it can take a while to get accustomed to traditional partial dentures and they’re less comfortable than other types, we work with you to get the perfect fit.

PRECISION ATTACHMENT PARTIAL

A precision attachment partial denture differs from traditional partial dentures because the metal framework isn’t visible. The framework features extensions that interlock with a receiving area that has been specially made for it on crowns or bridgework. A precision attachment partial denture looks and feels better than a traditional one and the clasps are virtually invisible. However, it is slightly more expensive than its traditional counterpart and though durable, it’s less stable than dental implants or a dental bridge.

DENTAL FLIPPER

A dental flipper is the least expensive partial denture but it’s only meant to be a temporary tooth replacement. It breaks easily, needs to be taken out when you eat and it isn’t healthy for your gums if it’s worn for an extended period. However, for a quick fix, it’s a good option. To create a dental flipper, an impression of your mouth is taken to make a gum-colored acrylic plate. Then, an acrylic tooth that matches the color of your natural teeth is attached to it. We can also attach metal wires to it, so that it can be secured to your teeth.

Implant-supported Dentures

When all of your teeth are missing, implant-supported dentures from Dr. Morgan address so many of the concerns people have about wearing dentures. This can be a great option to help ensure your dentures stay in place, as well as to maintain the integrity of the bone structure of your jaw.

LOOK

The dentures themselves will look completely natural. Dr. Morgan’s artistic approach and training in cosmetic dentistry help you receive dentures that complement your facial features and look like your natural smile.

FUNCTION

Implants give dentures stability. You won’t have to worry about them slipping around or falling out and embarrassing you. Implant-supported dentures make speaking and eating easy and enjoyable.

FEEL

Your dentures will be secured to dental implants. They will feel more like your natural teeth than they could otherwise. They will also be much more comfortable to wear than complete removable dentures.

Removable Complete Dentures

Though dental implants remain the most effective way to replace missing teeth, not everyone is a candidate for the procedure and it might not be within your budget. Removable partial dentures can be an economical option if you still have some teeth remaining in your jaw. Dr. Morgan uses the latest technology and materials to ensure they’re as natural looking and comfortable as possible.

How it Works

People should see your smile as an expression of you, not as a set of dentures that could belong to anyone. That’s why, before your dentures are made, we’ll sit down with you to talk about your needs and goals. Using your input and his extensive training and experience in dental aesthetics, Dr. Morgan will design removable complete dentures that complement your facial features and reflect your personality. You’ll try on a wax form of the dentures to see how the final product will look and feel. If you have any reservations or you’re not satisfied, they’ll be re-made on the wax form until you absolutely love your new smile.

If you’re afraid your dentures will slip or fall out, we also offer overdentures. With overdentures, as few as two implants can be surgically placed in your jawbone. Once you heal and the jawbone fuses around the implants, we secure your dentures to them to hold the dentures in place and further improve your comfort and function.
