Complete and Partial Dentures​

Complete Dentures

Replace all your missing teeth. Patients often look at complete dentures to restore a confident smile.

Immediate dentures are dentures that are placed immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. They are made to fit before the teeth are removed, and are inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures are usually made of acrylic and can be used to replace one or more teeth. They are designed to provide temporary support and stability while the gums heal. Immediate dentures are a good choice for those who need to replace their teeth quickly, such as those who need to attend a special event or have a job interview. They can also be used to improve a person’s appearance while they wait for their permanent dentures to be made.

Digital dentures are a type of denture that uses digital technology to create a precise fit for the patient. They are created using a digital impression system, which takes a 3D scan of the patient’s mouth and uses computer-aided design (CAD) software to design the dentures. The dentures are then 3D printed using a special resin material that is strong and durable. Digital dentures provide a more comfortable fit than traditional dentures and can last up to five years with proper care.

This denture is more personalized and provides superior fit, function, comfort and aesthetics. These dentures require more appointments to complete, but are of the highest quality, available in acrylic or porcelain teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. They are made to closely match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth so that they blend in with your smile. Partial dentures are usually made of acrylic, a type of plastic, and are often held in place by metal clasps that attach to your natural teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions that aren’t listed here? Reach out for a Free Consultation.

There are two main types of dentures, and they’re the following:

  • Complete dentures: This replaces all the teeth in your mouth. Hence, your dentist will suggest this option if all your teeth are missing.
  • Partial dentures: Partial dentures are removable, custom-made prosthetic devices used to replace one or more teeth. They may be made of acrylic or metal or a combination of both.

You need to review the following factors before deciding which is the best option for you:

  • Age: Younger people should choose implants because this is a more permanent solution. In essence, they have a few decades to enjoy their prosthetic teeth. Older people should go for dentures, especially those who don’t like to undergo invasive and tedious procedures.
  • Bone density: Implants need a specific jawbone material to support the teeth posts. If you lack this material due to tooth loss, gum disease, age, or injury, it’s best to pass on implants.
  • Feel and function: Implants are more comfortable to use and chew with than dentures.
  • Hygiene: If you’re unlikely to spend time caring for your dentures, go for implants. The latter may be pricier, but it’s low maintenance.

Here are the things you can expect while wearing dentures the first time:

  • They might feel loose or odd initially, but as soon as your tongue and cheek muscles get accustomed, they’ll feel more comfortable.
  • You might feel minor soreness or irritation, but these will subside once you’ve adjusted.
  • Eating might take some practice, too.

You can reintroduce solid foods once your mouth starts to get comfortable with your dentures. Typically, it may take 3–4 weeks before it’s safe to eat solid or harder foods after getting dentures. But ensure to start slowly with bite-sized pieces and easy-to-chew foods.

You may feel pain wearing temporary dentures after having your teeth extracted. But painkillers will help alleviate the pain and make you feel comfortable during the early stages of the healing period.

Avoid making adjustments to your dentures on your own. Adjusting your dentures at home can cause false teeth to break. If you’re dealing with any issues with your dentures, have them adjusted by your dentist.

Got my teeth whiting kit done with Mack, and had absolutely amazing service and experience. Mack was great and the product they sell is worth every penny. I was worried about any sensitivity my teeth would experience using the product and I had none, I was shocked! Thank you Koster Dental team!

I would highly recommend Andy to anyone getting dentures. Very honest and informative so I was comfortable with the whole process. Andy also sent me back to surgeon as he saw issues and this made a huge difference in fit. The look is fantastic and I am very pleased.

Nothing but great reviews on here for Kosters Dental Clinic and now I know why. I'd give Koster's 10 stars 🌟 if I could. No need to go anywhere else in the city for dental work. You won't find a friendlier receptionist like Sandy and a more experienced crew of professionals. Mack was so professional and kind, he aleviated my concerns immediately. The work I needed done was finished in record time. I will always go to Kosters in the future. I highly recommend this place.🌟
