We all hope that our natural teeth will last us a lifetime. When this isn't possible, the Pema Dental Center is here to offer a number of restorative options- one popular choice being dentures. Thanks to advances in polymer science, the vast majority of dentures are now made with extremely high-quality, durable plastic, and are stronger, more comfortable, and more natural looking than ever before. In short, these are not your grandmother’s dentures!
Different types of dentures are available based upon the needs of the patient.
Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper and/or lower jaw and rest on the gums that cover the jawbone. These dentures can be made more secure when attached to one or more tooth roots (overdenture) or to dental implants (implant overdenture). Some implant overdentures can be removed by the patient at home, while some must be removed by
Dr. Pema in office.
Partial dentures replace only some of the teeth and attach to the remaining natural teeth with clasps or mechanical components known as attachments (precision and semi-precision partial dentures, also called attachment partial dentures.) The team at Pema Dental Center will help you decide what the best choice of denture is for you.
