It also depends on the type of the denture and the technique the Glendale dentist or the laboratory technician uses to make the denture.

There are new advances in making dentures. One such advance is an implant-supported denture that stabilizes the denture. This kind of denture requires the placement of implants in your mouth before making the denture.

Partial Denture

Glendale Arizona partial dentures are replacement teeth for people who have lost one or more of their teeth. Partial dentures can be taken in and out of the mouth and consist of a denture base, which closely resembles the color of your gums and denture teeth, which are attached to a supporting framework. The partial denture then attaches to the existing teeth via a clasp or some other retentive device.

Modifying Your Existing Dentures With Overdentures
Hi, I’m Dr. Greg Ceyhan, my practice name is Aesthetic Dentistry of Arrowhead. We’re located here in Glendale, Arizona in the Arrowhead area. My field of practice is specifically cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry.

Well, to be honest with you, if a patient cannot afford to get a full mouth of implants, sometimes we can use their existing denture and we can modify it and have it fit into just fewer implants. So, it’ll make their denture that’s, let’s say loose, a little more secure and they can chew better with it. We call those over-dentures.

Partial Denture Complication

While every effort is made to make a good and functional partial denture, it may require a few adjustment visits and a little time for you and your partial denture to adapt to each other. The most important point to remember is that adjusting to your partial denture is a process; in some cases, it takes weeks to get used to a partial denture.

A new partial denture can also alter your eating and speaking habits and it may require a bit of practicing before you get comfortable.

Partial Denture Treatment

The first step in making a partial denture is the preparation of the teeth. During this phase your dentist may prepare the teeth that the partial denture will use for support. Next, your dentist will take an accurate impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth and records your bite. The impressions are then sent to the dental laboratory.

At the subsequent visits your dentist will evaluate your bite, test your speech and check the appearance and function of the partial denture teeth and gums.

After the final satisfactory fit and appearance are achieved, the denture is then sent back to the laboratory for final fabrication.

 Different Types Of Partial Dentures

There are newly developed techniques in making partial dentures. One such advance is an implant-supporting partial denture that helps give additional support to the partial denture. While it offers additional support it also requires the placement of implants in your mouth before making the denture.

There is also a partial denture that uses a special material called valplast which is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. This kind of partial does not use metal as its base and has hooks that are made with a flexible plastic material.

Immediate Denture

If you’ve suffered severe tooth decay, injury, or gum disease and need your remaining teeth replaced, an immediate denture can help relieve you of some concerns you may have after the extraction process is complete. An immediate denture, as its name implies, is a denture that is placed in your mouth immediately after your teeth are removed. It makes the transition to dentures less noticeable and also helps keep you performing everyday functions, like chewing and speaking.

Immediate dentures are made using your mouth as a model. First, the dentist will take an accurate impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth and establish a bite that best resembles your original bite.

During the next visit the dentist professional in Glendale will adjust your bite, test your speech and check the appearance and functionality of the denture teeth and gums. Sometimes it is necessary to repeat this step to ensure that everything is just right.

Stayplates (Temporary Dentures) & The Stayplate Treatment

If you are scheduled to have a tooth pulled before getting your partial denture, then your dentist may advise you to get a temporary partial denture or a stayplate while your gums and their supporting bone are healing. A stayplate will replace the missing tooth or teeth and can help you with your chewing and speaking until a more permanent solution is achieved. A stayplate will also help maintain your appearance when in public and keep your existing teeth from shifting in your mouth and creating bigger problems.

Stayplates are made using your mouth as a model. First, your dentist will take an accurate impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth and establish a bite that best resembles your original bite. Your dentist will also help you select the shape and color of the stayplate teeth and gums. This impression is then sent to the dental laboratory. At the subsequent visit, the teeth will be removed and the stayplate will be delivered.

Generally speaking, implants are a solution to replacing missing teeth. So, patients who are missing one tooth, it’s a fantastic solution because it gives you something that looks, feels, and acts the most like a natural tooth. You could floss it normally, brush it normally, and it looks like an actual tooth. If you’re missing a whole mouth full of teeth and you’ve basically been suffering with a denture for many years. Implants can replace a whole mouth full of teeth as well and you don’t have to take it in and out like you would a denture. So, that’s an excellent solution to patients who don’t have any teeth whatsoever.
