DenturesWhen a patient no longer has any healthy teeth remaining, we can create a customized denture prosthetic to provide them function and aesthetics. There are various options available in denture appliances that can vary based on the patient's comfort they are seeking, finances, and overall health. At Woodland Family Dental, our team including Dr. S. Welton and Dr. D. Welton, are dedicated to helping you feel and look your best. We understand the importance of your teeth, both to your daily activities and to how you feel about yourself. We are happy to meet with you in a consultation to discuss your options.

Partial Dentures

There are several options available in partial dentures, designed for patients with multiple missing teeth in a single arch. Options include:
•  Removable Partials: This option replaces multiple missing teeth using a clasp system allowing it to be removable. Patients may choose removable partials because they lack the appropriate anchor, either healthy teeth or implant posts, to attach a more permanent denture to. This option is also the least costly of all denture options.
•  Fixed Partial Dentures: Also called a fixed dental bridge, this option uses two dental crowns that are placed over either two healthy teeth or implant posts, and is cemented into place for a permanent, meaning non-removable hold.
•  Flexible Partials: This option is considered the most comfortable, though also most costly, of the partial dentures. The main difference is the plastic used, instead of a rigid plastic, a strong and durable flexible plastic is used, allowing the prosthetic to more naturally move around in your mouth, helping it feel more comfortable.

Traditional Dentures

Full dentures can be a life-altering decision for most patients. You may need to make adjustments to how you speak and even to what you can eat. Some options will only provide the most basic necessity, and some can feel like a whole new set of natural teeth. Our team is happy to go over these options with you.
•  Traditional Dentures: The most basic denture prosthetic is what most people think of when they think of dentures. Using a molded plastic set of teeth, the patient uses either suction or an over the counter adhesive to keep this dental appliance in place. Traditional dentures have never been known for their function or comfort, but they do provide the ability to chew when there was none, and they will fill out your facial structure which is sunken without either teeth or the denture.
•  Implant Retained Dentures: Increasingly more common has been dentures that are being held in place with the use of dental implants. With your dentures attached with implants, patients find considerable more comfort. They are permanently attached and do not need to be removed for any reason. Patients are able to continue eating any food they desire without the worry of having loose dentures in their mouths. Patients also find implant retained dentures to be much more aesthetically pleasing, making them feel more comfortable in social situations. The cost is significantly more, but the added benefit of comfort can not be beat.
