Do you have multiple missing teeth? Are you looking for a replacement for an old or worn denture?

Dentures are common dental restorations that improve the smile’s appearance by filling significant tooth gaps or all teeth in a smile.

Dentures and Partials in Franklin, MI

Complete dentures, also known as full dentures, replace the upper and lower tooth arches. Partial dentures replace multiple rows of teeth in different areas of the smile. Traditional dentures are removable and lay on the gums. These dentures typically use adhesive to stay in place and require soaking in denture cleaners.

Implant-secured dentures and partials offer longer-lasting treatment because implants provide stability at the tooth root. We will not use implants to replace every single tooth.

However, multiple implants can secure arches or rows of teeth to create a more stable bite. In addition, with implant-supported dentures, patients have fewer dietary restrictions against hard or crunchy foods and do not need to use adhesive for their restorations to stay in place. 

Treatment with Dentures

For traditional dentures, Dr. Shayota will first take dental impressions of the teeth for the denture. Then, she sends these impressions to a dental lab that creates custom dentures that match the shade and contour of natural teeth. The dentures can also match any remaining teeth for a seamless look.

Implant-secured dentures may require more treatment time, but they can last longer than traditional dentures. Dr. Shayota works with local oral surgeons to provide dental implants for our patients.

If you choose implant-secured dentures, Dr. Shayota must ensure that you have good oral health and enough bone tissue to support implants. She may recommend bone grafting as needed to prepare for treatment.

Then, an oral surgeon will place the implants in the jawbone beneath the gum tissue. Over three to six months, the implants fuse with the jaw bone to provide a stable foundation for the dentures. Next, Dr. Shayota will take impressions of the healing implants for the final denture. Once the implants are fully healed, Dr. Shayota will place the denture.
