The Different Types of Dentures
Partial & Full Dentures
When most people think of dentures, a picture of a traditional set of full dentures comes to mind — a removable set of teeth to replace complete tooth loss. These traditional full dentures are an affordable tooth loss solution that can allow you to eat and smile more easily.
Partial dentures are much like full dentures but are made for people who still have some teeth. They’re still fully removable, but have gaps in them to account for remaining teeth.
Implant-supported dentures use several dental implants, a revolutionary tooth replacement solution, to secure a denture in your mouth. We can either use your current dentures or create a new set for you.
To begin the process, Dr. Bloomquist will examine your oral condition and determine if you need any preparative procedures. Then, the procedure will be the same as for a single dental implant but with multiple implants for added stability.
Snap-In & Overdentures
Like implant-supported dentures, overdentures use dental implants to make sure your dentures are secure, but they can be removed for cleaning. You’ll receive multiple implants for stability and once they’ve healed, Dr. Bloomquist will show you how to put in and take out your dentures.
