Your Denture Options
When it comes to dentures there are a few things to consider.
There are a few types of dentures: removable full and partial or those that are permanent. All of these can be custom-fit to your mouth for a superior function and feel.
- Full: an acrylic “plate” of teeth that replaces all of your upper or lower teeth. It is removable and can be taken out to clean.
- Partial: also removable and replaces anywhere from one to several missing teeth. It can be fabricated with flexible plastic or a combination of acrylic and metal, and has clasps to help the appliance fit over supporting teeth and hold it in place.
- Permanent: dentures permanently attached to your jaw bone with the aid of dental implants. This method of restoring your bite comes with the added benefit of stabilizing and preserving your jaw bone.

Care and Maintenance
No matter what kind of dentures you choose, regular maintenance is recommended to extend their longevity. Always clean your appliances with a soft-bristled brush and see Dr. Bradford Korn, Dr. David Harrison and Dr. Keith Harrison for regular check-ups, cleanings, and repairs. Dentures can also take some time to get used to, but regular speaking and eating will help you become acclimated to your new smile in no time.
