Gain a bright confident healthy smile with affordable denture options from our experienced dentists at Oral Health Associates. Unfortunately, some patients feel achieving a healthy smile is impossible, particularly when dealing with missing teeth. Our dentists are here to help make your dream of a beautiful smile a reality with full, partial, or implant supported dentures. As your trusted Green Bay dentists, we can offer you a reliable and time-tested solution by using dentures to restore your smile.
Removable dentures, whether they’re full or partial, consist of a gum – colored base that’s made of plastic resin and fits over the remaining alveolar (bone) ridge that used to hold the teeth. The base will hold prosthetic teeth that are crafted to look and function just like your natural teeth. Dentures are held in place through the suctioning effect of their tight fit against the alveolar ridges. This makes it vital that the dentures are fitted properly; if they’re not, they’ll start slipping.
Wearing dentures may take some getting used to at first in terms of talking and eating, but as the muscles, nerves, and ligaments of the mouth learn to get used to the dentures, these basic functions will start occurring normally. With proper care, dentures will offer a functional, aesthetic, and economical solution to tooth loss. Our denture dentists at OHA are experts in making dentures that are a perfect fit for your mouth.
There are three types of full dentures that we offer for dental patients in Green Bay. They include immediate dentures, conventional full dentures, and implant-supported overdentures.
Immediate Dentures are a temporary way to transition you into successful denture wearing. These dentures are placed immediately after tooth extraction to aid in the muscular readjustment period and because gums shrink when teeth are missing. They do not fit as well as permanent dentures, but they are fully functioning teeth.
Permanent dentures are created after immediate dentures and conform to your mouth with unparalleled accuracy. These are crafted to look as close to your natural teeth as possible and they offer full and proper function for long term use.
Implant-supported dentures offer increased stability of lower and upper dentures. They are designed to minimize denture slipping and are securely anchored using two or more dental implants. Typically, the upper jaw requires more implants (often three or more) than the lower jaw. Implant supported dentures provide great comfort, functionality, and value.
Partial dentures are recommended depending on the health of your gums, remaining teeth, aesthetic and long-term goals, and functional requirements.
These are relatively afforable, removable plastic dentures that serve as a temporary tooth replacement and maintain space while your mouth heals from tooth extraction. After the healing period is finished, dental implants or partial dentures can be placed.
Made of a metal-based cast vitallium these dentures are much lighter and less obtrusive than plastic transitional dentures. They’re a bit more expensive but they fit better and last longer. Partial dentures are also, less expensive than tooth implants and fixed bridgework.
Removable dentures, whether they’re full, partial, or implant-supported consist of a gum-colored base made of plastic resin and fits over the remaining alveolar (bone) ridge used to hold the teeth. The base holds prosthetic teeth crafted to look and function just like your natural teeth. Dentures are held in place through the suctioning effect of their tight fit against the alveolar ridges. This makes it vital that the dentures are fitted properly; if not, they will slip.
If you recently lost your teeth and received an immediate denture, it’s completely normal to find some bone loss and tissue shrinkage occurring. As a result, your immediate or transitional dentures won’t fit as well. From there you have two options. First, you can have your immediate dentures relined, or the best option which is, conventional full dentures that last longer and fit better.
Wearing dentures takes getting used to. Talking and eating may feel awkward at first, but as the muscles, nerves, and ligaments of the mouth get used to the dentures, these basic functions will return to normal. With proper care, dentures will offer a functional, aesthetic, and affordable solution to tooth loss. Our denture dentists at OHA are experts in making dentures that are a perfect fit for your mouth.
