Dentures are removal prosthetics in dentistry which are used for replacing multiple missing teeth in an arch. While there are drawbacks to opting for this treatment, it is favored by many patients owing to its non-invasive and cost effective nature.
Unlike implants, dentures only replace the crown portions of the missing teeth. The success of this treatment heavily relies on the height of the dental ridge on to which the denture is seated. Fabricated using acrylic resin, dentures can effectively restore masticatory function, speech as well as aesthetics.
Through modern research, dentures supported by implants have recently been introduced that eliminate problems related to displacement, adhesion and compromised functionality. These dentures can either be supported by four or six implants of varying sizes, at strategically determined positions to bear the load of intra-oral forces. These new dentures are however, more expensive as compared to conventional dentures, but have shown outstanding results in patient satisfaction. Call today for a free Consultation
