For many Americans, removable dentures are the best way to replace missing teeth. Unlike implant dentures, dentures are completely removable, and are easy to place back in the mouth.
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that care custom made to match your natural teeth in size and color, and are attached to a flesh colored acrylic base that fits directly over your gums. The acrylic base is held in place by dental adhesive.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial, Your Delray Beach dentists will help you decide which option is right for you.
Full dentures replace all of your teeth. The lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe, while the upper denture covers the entire roof of your mouth.
Partial dentures (sometimes just called partials) replace only a few teeth in your mouth. They are attached to a metal plate that is anchored to your natural teeth. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
At Delray Beach Family Dentistry, we take pride on providing high quality low cost dentures. Your dentures will be custom made to fit your mouth, with the color of the acrylic base matching your own gums as closely as possible, and teeth that look completely natural.
Patients who do not have enough jaw structure to support implant dentures, or implant supported dentures, are good candidates for traditional dentures.
