Dentures in Spring Hill, FL

Full dentures and partial dentures are designed to replace missing teeth, and are worn by millions of Americans. Technological advancements have resulted in the ability to fabricate dentures that are lightweight and closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.

Partials

Partial dentures are designed to replace a small section of teeth, and help prevent existing healthy natural teeth from shifting position. Additionally they help relieve the remaining teeth from being overloaded during chewing and eating.

Metal-Free Partials

Traditional partials are typically fabricated with metal clasps placed on natural teeth for stabilization and retention. In certain cases, placement of these clasps are in areas that can be visualized and thus compromise the esthetics of one’s smile. In these cases, metal-free partials are an esthetic substitute. There is no metal in the mouth and the acrylic is made to resemble your gums. This leads to an improvement in the esthetics of your smile!

Dentures

Full dentures replace an entire set of teeth. They can be worn on both upper and lower arches. Our dentures are not “one size and color fits all.” We involve you in the process of picking the best shade and shape of the teeth and allow you to try out the dentures to make sure you are pleased with the esthetics and comfort prior to finishing them.

Implant Retained Dentures

Sometimes the shape of a patient’s mouth may cause difficulty achieving good stability of a denture. To avoid movement and enable a better quality of life and diet, dentures can be immobilized by the placement of implants. These serve as stabilizing units on which the denture can “snap” into, thus decreasing and even eliminating denture movement.

Example A
Example B
Example C

Example A shows two implants placed in the jaw bone with attachments added. Example B shows matching female attachments fabricated in the denture to be able to fit over the implants. These attachments will provide retention to reduce the amount of movement of the denture during function. This type of denture is mostly gum supported but gains some stability through the implant attachments. The denture still has some movement, but is more stable than a conventional denture without implants.

If a greater amount of stability is desired a Milled Bar Overdenture may be a more suitable option. In this scenario 4 to 5 implants are placed in the jaw bone and a milled metal bar is firmly fixed to the implants using screws.

Picture 1: Looking at the top of the bar, we can see the screws that attach the bar to the implants. The bar also has attachments that hold the denture to the bar.
Picture 2: The underside of the denture is contoured to fit over the bar, and there are attachments that hold the denture securely to the bar.
Picture 3: This type of prosthesis is totally implant supported and does not apply any pressure to the gums, thereby preventing sore areas.
Picture 4: The denture is extremely stable, providing you with function similar to natural teeth.
