Denture Options From The Best Dentist in Honolulu, HI
Dentures are a tooth replacement option that has been around for quite a while. A Downtown Dental Group offers many types of dentures including traditional dentures, implant-retained and implant-supported dentures, partial dentures, and temporary dentures. Each of these denture options is selected according to how many teeth you are missing and what you personally want.
Sticking With Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are the most identifiable type of denture. After an extraction, a patient must wait until the gums are healed to have their dentures placed in their mouth. This conventional version of dentures is often held in place by a gum-colored base that conforms to the gums. Our dentist in Honolulu has decades of experience with traditional dentures, and he outfits patients with them a great deal.
Everyone who has worn dentures knows that a loose pair of dentures is terribly annoying. In recent years, innovators in the dental field have worked to fix that problem. Mini implants are one solution that has greatly impacted the way dentures are placed. These type of implants are an artificial tooth root system specifically made to hold dentures in place firmly. Implant-retained dentures can save you multiple visits to the dentist having removable dentures refit to make them comfortable.
Partial dentures are a great option for a person who has a few missing teeth. They are held in place by attaching to your remaining natural teeth for a beautiful, comfortable smile.
Temporary dentures, also called immediate dentures, are a quick fix for missing teeth. This is recommended as a temporary solution for missing teeth while conventional dentures are being made for permanent wear. The difference between traditional dentures and temporary dentures is that temporary dentures are placed in the mouth the same day as tooth removal, requiring no time for the gums to heal and shrink. The advantage of this type of denture is that your smile is restored the same day, but there are also disadvantages to this procedure. If temporary dentures are worn for too long, they become loose and chewing food and talking starts to become a task.
