Sometimes people lose their teeth. Whether by disease or decay, it happens. Whatever the reason, patients require replacement teeth. Dentures are one option we offer to patients who need to replace their teeth.
At Porter Dental Health Clinic, we offer custom-made dentures, tailored specifically to what your mouth needs. You can choose between traditional, implant-supported, or All-on-4.
What are dentures?
Losing your teeth can be a difficult experience, but there is a solution. Dentures are dental appliances created for patients with several missing teeth. These dental appliances can come in a full or partial set, depending on how many teeth you have lost. Dentures allow patients to eat, talk, and smile, just like their natural teeth did.
Custom-Made, Traditional Dentures
If you’re picturing dentures as the mouthpieces that can be put in and taken out of your mouth at will, then you’re spot on! That’s exactly what our traditional dentures are like.
Porter Dental’s traditional dentures will be custom-fitted to your unique mouth shape. Once they’ve been crafted, you’ll be able to smile, laugh, eat, and talk with your brand new set of teeth.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are attached to the bone of the jaw or skull with the use of dental implants. These types of dentures won’t be removable. They’ll stay fixed in the mouth.
Typically, this type of denture can be used on patients with no teeth but with enough bone in the jaw to support the implants. With the dentures attached to implants, there won’t be any worry about the dentures slipping or falling out.
All-on-4 dentures are a type of implant-supported denture. They are full sets of dentures attached with four specific implants placed strategically on the upper skull bone and lower jawbone.
All-on-4 dentures are unique in that they only require four implants. This means they can be used for patients who might not have enough bone density in the skull or jaw to support implants for each missing tooth.
