Types of Dentures
There are a variety of different dentures that we can provide to patients in our Annandale office:
- Immediate Dentures: If you need tooth extractions for remaining infected or severely damaged teeth, we can provide you with immediate dentures. We are able to prepare for this short-term solution before your extraction procedure. Our team takes dental impressions that are used to fabricate the dentures. After the teeth are extracted, the immediate dentures are inserted.
- Partial Dentures: We recommend partial dentures for patients who are not eligible for a dental bridge. Partial dentures replace rows of missing teeth with a dental prosthesis. This type of denture is usually removable and prevents the shifting of any remaining natural teeth.
- Ball Attachment Denture: This type of denture requires two implants placed in the lower jaw and a denture that snaps onto the implants. This stabilizes the lower denture.
- Bar Attachment Denture: For a bar attachment denture, we place four to six implants into the lower jaw. After the implants are healed, they are connected with a custom support bar. The denture is made with special internal retention clips, or an overdenture, that attaches onto the support bar.
- Screw Retained Denture: For these dentures, we place five or more implants in your jaw and attaching a permanent denture. Your denture is held in place by screws or clasps that secure it to the support posts or bar. This denture will replace all your missing lower teeth.
