Types of Dentures in Manteca, CA
Choosing the right set of artificial teeth for your mouth can be hard, but our qualified dental experts can help you reach the best decision. At our Manteca, CA, practice, we offer 3 main types of dentures: partial, complete, and implant-supported.
They are ideal for those patients who have lost a few or more teeth within the same arch. Partial dentures have an acrylic base that supports a set of artificial teeth. They also have metal wires or clasps that loop around healthy teeth for additional support and retention. They are removable; thus, you can take them off easily for cleaning and maintenance.
These dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Whether you have lost all your teeth due to aging, trauma, or oral disease, they can efficiently replace the full set of teeth to restore your smile and functions. Like partials, they are also removable and can be taken off with ease. They have an acrylic or metal base that completely relies on the support of your jawbone. We custom-fabricate them from high-quality material to ensure a natural-looking fit.
Implant-supported dentures are an excellent choice for those who want a permanent replacement for an entire arch of missing teeth. They rely on the support of 4 to 6 dental implants that are inserted into the jawbone. The implant fuse with the bone and provide sturdy support to the dental prosthesis. Because they are fixed, you can eat all your favorite meals without worrying about them falling out.
