What Are Dentures?
Dentures are replacement teeth mounted on a polymer base to give them the appearance of natural teeth and gum tissue. Beck Dental Care will work with a trusted modern dental lab to create your denture restoration. Our lab uses high-quality materials to create exceptionally lifelike dentures.
Types of Dentures Available at Beck Dental Care
At Beck Dental Care, we pride ourselves on our ability to help everyone who comes to see us for replacement teeth. Talk to Columbia, TN dentist Dr. Beck, Dr. Hart, or one of our team members about which denture option is best for your smile. We offer:
A partial denture is a dental prosthetic designed to replace multiple missing teeth while fitting in comfortably among a patient’s remaining teeth, much like a piece of a puzzle. They are all entirely custom-made, and they consist of ceramic teeth attached to a metal-support structure covered in a gum-colored material to help the denture blend in. They’re held in place within the mouth using small metal claps that loop around the remaining teeth.
If you are missing an entire row of teeth on either your upper and/or lower jaw, a full denture is a relatively quick and affordable way to replace them all at once. An acrylic, gum-colored base it used to support an entire row of prosthetic teeth, and it simply sits on top of the gums, staying in place thanks to natural suction and perhaps a little denture adhesive. With them, we can drastically improve a patient’s ability to speak and eat with confidence.
Sometimes, in order for a patient to get a denture, some teeth need to be removed in order to create enough room for the device. After we have extracted your teeth, we’ll take an impression of your mouth to design your new dentures. While they are being made by a dental lab, we’ll fit you for a temporary denture so you don’t have to go without teeth at any point. Once your final denture is complete, we’ll swap it out with your temporary one.
If you’re sick and tired of your removable denture not staying in place, then an implant-retained retained denture may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Four to six dental implants will be placed into your jaw, and they will be designed to have a denture snap onto them. Compared to a regular denture, an implant denture has a much firmer hold, the fit lasts longer, and it also gives a patient a much stronger bite force.
