Dentures: How do they actually work?
Removable acrylic teeth are known as dentures. They are extremely useful when someone loses almost all of their teeth. Full mouth dentures come in two sets or arches. The set is placed on the patient’s gums and acts and looks exactly like natural teeth. A dental laboratory creates each arch from an acrylic material. The process of making dentures begins with the dentist taking an impression of the person’s mouth and then sending it to the dental laboratory. The lab then makes customized dentures that fit the mouth of the patient well. If going without teeth is not an option for you at Now Dentistry we can create a high quality set of dentures for you in office same day.
The Various Types of Dentures
At Now Dentistry, we offer several different kinds of dentures. Following are some of the most popular denture types we offer.
Full Removable Dentures
Our dentists use full dentures when the patent has absolutely no teeth. Whether the Dentist had to remove the teeth for some health reason or the teeth came out on their own, full dentures can easily replace the entire mouth.
Removable Partial Dentures
Removable partial dentures are used when a patient has lost most of their teeth. These dentures can also substitute a dental bridge when the patient is missing only some of their teeth. Like traditional dentures, it is important to remove partials to clean them regularly.

Denture arches that stand on implants are known as implant-retained dentures. These implants integrate with the jawbone like real roots of the tooth which stimulates the bone and help stop the deterioration of the jaws and maintain your natural facial contours.
The only way to stop bone shrinkage, which occurs naturally in areas where the teeth are missing, is to keep it stimulated and alive. Implant-retained dentures are extremely helpful in stopping deterioration of the natural contours of your face. Moreover, since this form of denture is secured using implants you will never have to worry about the denture every coming out while eating or speaking. Unlike full or partial removable dentures or even the traditional dentures, implant retained dentures provide the patient with the security of having the denture connected to the implants. This means you do not have to use an adhesive to keep your dentures in and you will never have to worry about the embarrassment of the denture coming out. Patients also can chew so much harder with an implant retained denture because the denture is supported with implants unlike traditional dentures that are support by the gums.
