Dr. Ajmo Offers Options For Comfortable, Esthetic Dentures
Dentures Palm Beach Gardens
As an implant and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ajmo has training and experience to offer denture patients a variety of attractive prosthetic options. During a consultation, Dr. Ajmo will talk with you about your experience with dentures, discuss your goals and lifestyle, and become your consultant in choosing the best option to replace your missing teeth.
Traditional Partial Dentures
Partial dentures, or partials for short, replace multiple missing teeth that are not adjacent to one another. A partial consists of lifelike replacement teeth set on a base that fits comfortably in the mouth. Partials are removable prosthetics, not fixed like bridges. In most cases, a traditional partial is secured to neighboring teeth with inconspicuous clasps. Modern dental materials allow our lab to create partials that fit comfortably and securely, while creating a natural-looking smile.
Traditional Full Dentures
Full dentures replace all teeth on the upper or lower arch. Many styles and brands of dentures are available, and some are more esthetic than others. In most cases, traditional dentures stay in place with natural suction or denture adhesive. Dentures require special care and may need to be refitted as a patient’s gum ridges change over time.
Mini Implant Dentures
To secure dentures, particularly lower dentures that slip or loosen, Dr. Ajmo may recommend mini implants to secure dentures. This type of implant is particularly suited for patients with narrow mouths that won’t allow for traditional implants. Because mini implants feature smaller posts than traditional implants, they expand treatment options for patients who may otherwise not qualify for implant-retained dentures. Dr. Ajmo can place mini implants in a single visit to PGA Center For Advanced Dentistry.
Implant retained Dentures
For optimal stability and dependability, implant-retained dentures present the best solution. You must have sufficient jawbone density and good oral health prior to implant placement. Learn more about the implant procedure here. Implant-retained dentures rely on a few traditional implants, anchored in the jaw, for stability. Some styles feature a horizontal support bar onto which dentures are secured. Implant-retained dentures have a snap-on system for simple, quick placement, and they are a removable prosthetic. In some cases, Dr. Ajmo’s lab can retro-fit a patient’s existing dentures with implant attachments.
