Removable Conventional Full Dentures
Removable conventional full dentures are comprised of a gum-colored base that fits over the bone ridge where the natural teeth were located and prosthetic teeth designed to look and feel natural. Removable conventional dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by the suction that is created between the gum and the base of the denture. Because the suction between the base of the denture and the gums is what primarily holds the dentures in place, each set of dentures is customized and fitted for each specific patient’s mouth to provide the patient with the most natural-looking results. Removable conventional full dentures are long-lasting and can be used to restore function and cosmetic appearance for patients who have experienced full tooth loss.
This type of full arch removable denture can be used to improve the stability of upper or lower dentures by providing an anchor in the form of a dental implant.Implant-supported dentures are often the restorative dental method used for patients who do not have any remaining teeth in the jaw but do have sufficient bone to support the dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are most commonly used to replace missing teeth on the lower jaw because conventional dentures are not as stable. This type of denture typically requires at least two dental implants for optimal support, though more dental implants may be required when using implant-supported dentures to replace teeth in the upper jaw.
