Gorgeous Dentures Options
Great fitting dentures will feel comfortable, give you confidence, and allow you to speak and eat the way you want to. At Dentistry By Design, Dr. Tiner works closely with you to design a prosthesis that looks great, complements your facial profile, and offers long-term success.
To replace all of the teeth at one time, a full denture is typically the preferred method of treatment. This prosthesis is removable and is stabilized over your jawline, using suction between the acrylic base and your gum tissues. If you have any teeth that are impacted by advanced gum disease or tooth decay, dental extractions are necessary prior to the placement of the denture.
When possible, Dr. Tiner prefers to help you maintain any existing teeth that are still healthy, instead of pulling them. A partial denture replaces all of the other teeth but snaps into place around your natural teeth. This makes the overall prosthesis much smaller and adds a bit more security depending on which teeth are being replaced.
Implant Supported Dentures
Dr. Tiner can capably offer implant-supported prosthesis as an alternative to conventional dentures, due to his extensive work with dental implants. With an implant-supported denture, the prosthesis stays in place permanently or clasps in and out over an attachment.
The overall design of the appliance is also slimmer, as a “plate” is not needed across the roof of the mouth. Our patients find they enjoy more freedom to speak clearly and the ability to eat more difficult foods with an implant-supported prosthesis. Moreover, dentures can be supported by as few as four to six implant roots.
