What Types of Dentures are Available at Peninsula Dental Implant Center?
Redwood City, California area patients will find the following denture options available to them with Dr. Shivani Gupta:
- Full dentures. Full dentures, often referred to by our team as “complete” dentures or “floating” dentures, replace all the teeth in the arch with a high-quality acrylic denture made to represent false teeth and false gums. These require denture adhesives to remain in place, though they can shift and cause sores for some.
- Immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are dentures constructed before removing damaged or unwanted teeth and placed on the day of the extractions. These can be adjusted and allow patients to avoid a period of time without teeth.
- Also called “implant-supported dentures,” these restorations are made to replace all the teeth but are designed to attach to several dental implants along the gumline. The implant provides stability, strength, and optimum function for patients missing all their teeth. These dentures provide fixed permanent sets of teeth that replace all the teeth in the arch with high-quality dentures made of PMMA polymer or Zirconia.
- Partial dentures. A patient missing one or several teeth in the dental arch might benefit from a partial denture, which uses the surrounding teeth to hold a dental appliance in place, sliding false teeth where needed.
