A smile you can be proud of!
Dentures not only restore the function of your mouth, making it easier to both talk and eat, but they also bring new life to your face and whole person as your smile is restored. To help you get the function you need and the look you want, Claxton Denturist offers four denture options, and our registered denturist will meet one on one with you in a free consultation to help determine which option is most appropriate.
Complete dentures are exactly what they sound like: a complete appliance that takes the place of all of the teeth in your mouth. These are available as either a standard or premium denture. Standard dentures are made using basic tooth shapes and shades, and these can be an affordable option for many patients. Premium dentures are completely customized; our denturist uses jaw impressions and other facial measurements to craft a denture that restores the look of your face and smile. Our denturist will help you understand which denture option makes sense for you.
Partial dentures are designed to work with your natural teeth, and they even help remaining natural teeth stay in place by providing them with the support adjacent teeth offer each other.
Partial dentures can be made from acrylic, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics. Our denturist will outline the advantages and disadvantages of each partial denture type so that you are equipped to choose what’s best for your situation.
Implant-supported dentures are anchored to your gums and provide the most stable, like-real teeth replacement option. Our denturist will help determine if implants are appropriate for you, and he will help you locate a surgeon to perform the implantation. After implantation is performed, our denturist will design and fit the denture appliance and affix it to the implants.
Immediate dentures enable you to avoid a period of being without teeth. Your dentures will be created from mouth impressions taken while any natural teeth remain, and then inserted in your mouth directly following tooth extraction.
Because the immediate denture goes in before healing occurs, denture adjustments may be required and follow-up appointments are absolutely necessary. When healing is complete, your immediate dentures will be rebased or relined to optimize fit, or new dentures may then be created.
