If you are considering getting dentures in Albuquerque, NM, we here at Dr. Rose Dentistry are here to help get you smiling again. Dentures are a removable, artificial replacement for missing teeth. Dentures are highly functional and give the wearer a beautiful, natural looking smile. Dentures can have a transformative effect on your appearance and your self-confidence.
There are two different types of dentures:
Complete Dentures – Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Complete dentures can be conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are placed when healing is completed, many months after removing remaining teeth. Immediate dentures can be used immediately after tooth removal, but may require realigning once healing is complete.
Partial Dentures – Partial dentures can be used when one or more healthy teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. With partial dentures, natural-looking replacement teeth are affixed to a base which matches the color of your gums. Partial dentures are often held in place using a clasp anchored on the existing teeth.
Dentures are custom made for each individual patient. The process typically takes several weeks. We begin by making an impression of your jaw and taking measurements. Next, we build a model of the dentures. Finally, after casting the dentures, we perform multiple fittings and adjustments until they fit perfectly.
Dentures offer a long-term, natural looking solution for individuals who suffer tooth loss.
