Types of Dentures
Dr. Gapuz is committed to helping each patient choose the treatment that is most appropriate for their needs. When you come to our office, he will perform a complete oral examination. He will evaluate your medical history, examine your jawbone, and explain the different types of dentures, including:
- Traditional full dentures: These removable restorations will replace all teeth in your upper or lower arch. Using meticulous impressions of your gums, our partnering dental lab will craft a prosthetic with a plastic base that will fit securely in your mouth.
- Traditional partial dentures: Partial dentures may be recommended if you are missing multiple teeth, but still have healthy teeth as well. Partial dentures are removable and have small clasps that attach to the surrounding healthy teeth.
- Implant-supported dentures: Full and partial implant dentures will be permanently fixed in your mouth, so they will never slip or move. Dr. Gapuz is an experienced implant dentist. He can perform every stage of your treatment, including the implant placement surgery.
