Good dental health is crucial to your overall health. Dr. Gaff provides knowledgeable, quality dental care to patients in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and surrounding Florida cities.
What are dentures in Jacksonville, FL?
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that are removable for cleaning and sleeping. While dentures take some getting used to, they are natural looking. There are two main types of dentures full and partial. Dr. Gaff can help you decide which type of denture is best for you, based on whether you have some or all of your teeth that need to be replaced.
What types of dentures are offered in Jacksonville, FL?
Dentures are custom made for each patient’s mouth and depending on the patient’s needs, can be full or partial dentures. There are various types of dentures including:
- Partial – Removable dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases which are connected by metal framework and attach to your natural teeth or dental implant. Partial dentures may be an alternative to bridges.
- Conventional- Placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing time varies from patient to patient, and during this time, patients will be without teeth.
- Immediate- An immediate full denture is inserted immediately after remaining teeth are removed. The benefit is that patients won’t have to go without teeth, but they will need to schedule a follow-up appointment to get their denture relined, as the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals.
- Implant Retained – Also known as an implant over denture fits over your own remaining natural teeth roots or dental implants. The implant provides excellent stability and support for your denture implants.
