Dentures at Lightwood Dental

Smile Confidently

Older woman with white hair and beautiful smileWhen you need to replace multiple teeth — or all of them — at once, a conventional denture or partial is usually the most efficient solution. Affordable and made just for your smile, these prosthetics work to address the functional and aesthetic concerns caused by tooth loss.

Our dentures and partials can be made to fit using traditional methods or affixed directly to dental implants for added stability. In some cases, we can retrofit existing dentures to snap over implants for a more comfortable fit.

Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures

Conventional dentures rest directly on top of your gum tissue. When worn for an extended period of time, they can cause sore spots, bone loss or be uncomfortable to wear. Because they rely on suction to keep them in place, frequent rocking or shifting is common.

With an implant supported denture, you can benefit from advantages like:

  • A more streamlined, hybrid design
  • Improved biting and chewing function
  • Confidence knowing the prosthesis won’t slip out of place
  • Greater comfort when speaking or smiling in front of others
  • Longer results and better bone health

You do not need an individual implant for each missing tooth. In fact, implants are so durable that we can attach a full-arch denture using as few as four implants total.

All implant placements are completed in-house with a visiting specialist and the option for sedation or anaesthesia during your procedure.

Missing Tooth Treatments

Everyone’s oral health needs are different. During your denture consultation, we will discuss how various options or combinations for treatments can give you the results you’re looking for. Whether it’s a removable denture, an implant supported bridge or a hybrid denture design, we’ll work closely side-by-side to help you select the best option for your situation.
