What Are Dentures?
Full dentures are a full arch of replacement teeth that are mounted on a polymer base. Our dentures give you the look of real teeth and gums, so you can have a full smile even after losing your natural teeth. We have multiple options available.
What Types Of Dentures Does Dr. Brar Offer?
Cosmetic Lift Denture – After you lose your teeth, you will experience loss of mass in your jawbone. This can give your face a sunken look and age you prematurely. Unlike an traditional denture, cosmetic lift dentures can restore your appearance by adding back the mass you lost. This gives you the full, healthy appearance you once had, almost like a facelift but without the surgery.
Implant-Retained Denture – For this denture, you will first have dental implants placed with ball attachments on top of them. These balls fit into matching parts built into the base of your denture. With the help of dental implants, you get a stable feel and dentures that stay put.
Implant-Supported Denture – Like the implant-retained denture, this option uses dental implants. Instead of balls holding your denture in place, however, a bar runs along your implants. The denture clips onto the bar to remain stable inside your smile.
Are Dentures Better Than Dental Implants?
Dental implants and dentures are not the same, so one is not always better or worse than the other. They can actually be used together to give you new and better ways to solve your tooth replacement needs.
