Advances in Denture Technology

Do you have missing teeth, or do you need to have teeth removed to improve your oral health?  A denture is a replacement for missing teeth.  This removable replacement option offers patients a viable solution for full or partial tooth replacement.   There are two types of standard dentures: complete dentures or partial dentures, depending on the severity of your missing teeth.

If one or more of your teeth remain in your upper or lower jaw, a partial denture may be the best option.  Keeping as many of your own healthy teeth is often recommended by most dental professionals.  A partial denture is made up of replacement teeth that are adhered to a pinkish, gum colored plastic base that attaches in your mouth.  This partial, or bridge will fill in the gaps between your natural remaining teeth and your missing teeth.

Complete dentures are designed for patients who have no remaining natural teeth, and complete dentures can be conventional or immediate.  Your dental professional can help you determine the best option that will optimize your comfort and benefit your long term oral health.

Advancements are being made in the development of both partial and complete dentures.  The typical denture process lasts anywhere from one month to 60 days and requires multiple visits to the dentist.  This cumbersome process is being shortened by the Detnca CAM/CAD.  This computer aided manufacturing process allows for computer aided design of your dentures.  This faster and more cost effective method is being embraced by many dental professionals all around the United States.  Check with your dental professional to see if dentures are a good solution for your dental needs.

Had a great visit! Janice was a pleasure and Dr. Porcaro was very personable. They both made me feel at ease. The doctors husband (can’t remember his name) was able to find the best financing to fit our budget. I would definitely recommend Grateful Dental to my friends and family.
