What are Dentures?
A denture is an appliance that replaces your natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Dr. Ed is skilled in denture procedures and offered four different types of partial and full dentures.
- Immediate Denture: a denture fabricated and inserted immediately after teeth are extracted and tissues heal under the denture
- Partial Denture: a removable appliance that corrects tooth loss by attaching to your natural teeth
- Implant Supported Denture: a denture fixed in the mouth to eliminate rocking, shifting and slurring of speech
- All On Four: a permanent implant supported denture that can only be removed in office, if necessary
Dentures Don’t Need To Be A Source of Embarrassment
Dentures have never been portrayed as a positive in popular culture. They’re usually associated with the elderly who either take them out or they fall out. Dentures are an important part of dentistry and can be needed at any age. There’s no reason to be embarrassed of denture implants.
