Dentures may be the right restorative solution for patients who are looking for affordability, convenience, and speed. This type of prosthetic doesn’t have roots like natural teeth, and it won’t be anchored in any way to your mouth. Instead, it simply rests on the soft tissue and can be removed from whenever the patient desires.
Although finding the right denture can be a challenge for some patients, Dr. Ryan is an experienced prosthodontic specialist who can design the ideal prosthetic for your mouth. The final result will look beautifully natural and feel very comfortable when worn. Please contact us here in Jacksonville, FL to schedule a consultation.
There are two major types of traditional dentures – complete and partial. Complete (or full) dentures are necessary when a patient has lost all of the natural teeth along an arch of the mouth, while partials fill in spaces along the arch and allow natural teeth to stay safely in place.
Additionally, complete dentures may be conventional or immediate in nature. Conventional dentures are not made until after all remaining teeth have been removed from the desired arch and the patient’s gum tissue has fully healed. This process will likely take at least 4-6 weeks. Alternatively, immediate dentures are created in advance of this process so that they can be provided to the patient right away. This means that they won’t have to spend any time without the teeth they need.
