Creating Your Dentures

Dentures are widely used prostheses that allow patients missing most or all of their teeth to talk, chew, and perform other oral functions with confidence. Additionally, they restore the look of a naturally beautiful smile, so patients no longer need to be unhappy with the appearance of their missing teeth. Dentures can be full-arch prostheses that replace one or both dental arches, or partial, meaning they only replace a number of teeth missing in a row.

To create your denture, Dr. Rothenberg will perform a comprehensive examination that involves X-rays, photographs, and digital imaging. Dr. Rothenberg works closely with our dental laboratory to create dentures that not only fit snugly and comfortably within your mouth, but are made to the exact color, size, and shape specifications of your natural teeth. Your dentures can be created in just a few weeks, during which time you may wear a temporary denture.

Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

Traditionally, dentures are affixed to a patient's gums using a specialized adhesive intended for daily use. Removable dentures are taken out nightly, when a patient will clean both their gums and dentures of adhesive residue and any bacteria that accumulates as it would on natural teeth.

Implant-supported dentures are supported by dental implants, tiny titanium implants that are surgically inserted into the jaw. Once your implants have fully healed, Dr. Rothenberg can create a denture that snaps on to custom abutments that are affixed to the top of your implants. Implant-supported dentures offer an extra level of functionality and security, since patients do not have to worry about them slipping out of place.

The type of denture that is right for you depends upon your lifestyle and budget. Although implant-supported dentures are more costly than traditional dentures, they are the only denture option that helps slow the degeneration of the jaw bone, which naturally happens after tooth loss. 

Benefits Of Dentures

Not only do dentures restore the look of a natural, complete smile, but they offer several functional benefits as well:

  • Removable dentures are easy to clean, and can be treated much the same way as natural teeth using a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a special rinse.
  • Dentures are sturdy. Because of the special composition used to make our dentures, they allow patients to chew and speak with confidence.
  • Dentures can fill in sunken cheeks and reduce the wrinkles that may be caused by missing teeth.
