Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are artificial replacement teeth that are typically attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth and support your cheeks, lips, and facial structure. Dentures assist with chewing, speaking, smiling, and more. 

Dentures are often derived from acrylic resin, sometimes along with various metals.


Are there different types of dentures?

Dr. Azhar provides different treatment options for dentures, such as:

 

  • Implant-supported dentures
  • Partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines

 

Your custom dentures from Family Dental Wellness Center are typically created in a dental lab.

Standard dentures

Standard full dentures refer to a full set of upper and lower teeth. Standard dentures are made from a pliable material and use suction to remain in place.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are devices that are designed to replace a limited number of teeth instead of an entire set. Your remaining natural teeth and gums support your partial dentures.

Cosmetic dentures

Cosmetic dentures are made to look natural, and they’re usually made from a special acrylic base that helps the denture keep its shape over time. Advanced cosmetic dentures typically snap onto or rest on a dental implant. 

To replace your natural tooth root, Dr. Azhar carefully surgically fuses a dental implant to your jawbone. Your dentist attaches your beautiful new dentures onto your new dental implants.


Which type of denture is right for me?

During your visit to Family Dental Wellness Center, Dr. Azhar explains the available options and helps you choose the best one for you. For example, if you only have a few missing teeth, you might decide to get partial removable dentures that attach to your natural teeth.

If you need to replace all of your upper or lower teeth, you might choose full or complete dentures.

Dental implants are a great option to stabilize and secure your beautiful custom dentures.

Your denture might have a metal framework and natural-looking connectors or clasps that attach to your teeth. In some instances, to improve the fit of your new removable dentures, your dentist might need to place crowns, typically with special attachments, on your natural teeth.

Dr. Azhar uses the latest advanced dental tools and technology and works with a qualified dental lab. The team provides especially gentle dental care for the elderly.
