Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Precision Ceramics carries a variety that will for sure fit your needs. We have complete dentures, partial dentures, implant supported dentures and partial dentures.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures can either be “conventional” or “immediate”. A conventional denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has already begun to heal. Immediate dentures are made in advance and are positioned in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed.

Acrylic Processing Techniques Used For Completed Dentures:

SR-Ivocap

SR-Ivocap is a versatile denture material that we have come to rely on a great deal for denture processing. It provides excellent results, whether full dentures, bases, or relines are prescribed. For patients, this means comfortable fit, proper retention, and elimination of painful pressure points.

Lucitone

Lucitone is one of the strongest acrylics available which provides denture patients with a high resistance to accidental breakage. Besides strength, this acrylic offers patient’s a“lifelike” denture with balanced translucency, tissue coloration blending, and fibered vein simulation.

 

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. It also prevents other teeth from drifting and changing position. Materials that we use to make partial dentures include Flexible Partials (Thermoplastic), Acrylic Partial Dentures, Metal/Acrylic Combination.

Materials Used to Make Removable Partial Dentures

– Flexible Partials (Thermoplastic)
– Acrylic Partial Dentures
– Metal/Acrylic Combination

Flexible Partials (Thermoplastic)

Today, more dentists are advising flexible partial dentures for comfort as well as strength. The denture is made of either nylon or vinyl composite material. The flexible yet strong nature of this denture material is perfectly suited to a variety of natural conditions in the mouth which provides superior function and stress distribution.

Acrylic Partial Dentures

An acrylic partial denture may be used to replace one or several tooth. It can be used as an immediate replacement for an extracted tooth or an interim replacement. Sometimes it can be used as a long-term replacement if finances are a problem.

Metal/Acrylic Combination

The metal/acrylic partial (commonly called a cast partial) is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture. These partials are considered to be more of a permanent prosthesis.

Implant Supported Dentures

Stabilizing dentures with implants provides a more comfortable and functional solution for denture wearers. Patients who opt for implant supported dentures are more confident when they eat, talk or laugh. Implant supported dentures are more comfortable because they are secure and feel more like natural teeth.

Types of Implant-Supported Overdentures:

Hybrid (screw retained) Implant Dentures

A hybrid implant denture combines the advantage of a fixed replacement with those of a removable denture. A hybrid denture requires placing four to six dental implants in the jaw. IN most cases a temporary denture is screwed into the dental implants on the same day of dental placement. After healing, a final hybrid denture is fabricated. This denture is then screwed onto the implants.

Implant Supported Overdentures

With implant supported Overdentures, a thin metal bar that follows the curve of the jaw is attached to two to six Implants that have been placed in the jawbone. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.
