These dentures are replacements for patients who have lost all teeth in both upper and lower jaws. They improve the patient’s appearance, allow them to eat better, and maintain correct allignment of both the upper and lower jaws.
Flexible Partial Dentures:
Flexible dentures are now replacing acrylic partial dentures, due to the facts that they lock perfectly in undercut areas of teeth, are able to withstand more biting forces, and are much more adaptable.
Cast Partial Dentures (C.C Plates):
These dentures are for patients who have lost many teeth on both the right and left sides of upper and lower jaws. They are usually a more rigid and permanent style of dentures. The metal is either a highly compatible chrome cobalt alloy or titanium, which are both ultra thin, light and very strong.
Implant Supported Dentures:
These Dentures use support from implants that are surgically placed into the bone of the jaws instead of using support from the bone, hence saving bone integrity and also making it easier for the patient to adapt to them. They lock onto the implants in a click and can also be taken off for maintaining good oral hygiene.
Acrylic Partial Dentures:
Although not a good choice for being a permanent solution for missing teeth, these dentures however are used as a temporary replacement of missing teeth until a proper solution can be recommended by the dentist.
Denture Lining/ Tissue Conditioning:
Denture Liners are ideal solution for long term denture wearers, who prefer their loose dentures to adapt to the bony change that has occurred over years of wearing the same dentures. Due to the soft lining of the denture, the gums take very little pressure from the denture. Soft liners act as a Cushion between the denture and the denture bearing areas.
