Dentures/Partials

Dentures are usually used to replace multiple missing teeth. When all of your teeth are missing in either the upper or lower jaw the only treatment alternative has been dentures. The biggest hurdle most people face with dentures is that they are unstable when they eat. They move and food gets under the denture. Some people only wear them when they eat. For the new denture wearer it is usually getting used to eating with artificial teeth. In all cases dentures are rarely comparable to natural teeth.

Full Dentures

Used to replace teeth when you are missing all the teeth in either one or both jaws. Dentures are either porcelain or composite resin teeth that are processed onto gum colored acrylic that are fit to the shape of your mouth.

Implant Retained Dentures

With Implant retained Dentures, the Dental implants are placed in the jaw and the denture is attached to them. The implants not only provide more stability to the denture, but once the implant is placed it keeps the existing bone from being lost. Bone loss is one of the primary reasons that denture wearers have problems with their dentures.

Partial Dentures

Many times when people are missing many teeth they cannot place one or more bridges, cannot have implants and going to full dentures would be premature. In this case, Dr. Knight may recommend to you a Partial Denture. As the name implies, it is a denture (meaning tooth replacement) and it is for fewer than all the teeth. Partials can be from one to twelve teeth, and can be used in upper and lower jaws. A partial is made with an acrylic base and resin teeth like a conventional denture, but it also may have a metal reinforced base. Dr. Knight can recommend the correct design for you.
