What Are Dentures?

Our high-quality Livonia dentures are made from acrylic and metal materials that snugly fit over your gums for a secure hold. Traditional dentures are a great option for individuals with moderate to severe tooth loss who are not ideal candidates for dental implants.

If you have multiple severely decayed or damaged teeth, Dr. Thomas may recommend implant-supported dentures. This form of dental restoration relies on titanium or titanium alloy posts surgically placed in your jawbone. The posts serve as anchors for full or partial dentures. Implant-supported dentures are an ideal restorative option for patients that enjoy the appearance and feel of dentures but are interested in a more permanent solution.

Various Types of Dentures We Offer

If you're looking for exceptional dentures in Livonia, we offer multiple options to fit your unique oral health needs. Whether you'd like a denture to match your lifestyle or a denture that requires minimal care, we have the restorative solution for you. Our options include:

Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are ideal for patients with just a few missing teeth. This form of dentures can be attached to your natural teeth in several ways. The most conventional method involves the use of metal clasps that your dentist sets up and grips your natural teeth. They can also be attached to crowns or other restorative prosthetics. Partial dentures not only serve as a replacement for your natural teeth but can help prevent nearby healthy teeth from shifting or changing positions.

Full Dentures: Full dentures are designed to replace entire arches of missing teeth. They consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that covers your gums, allowing for a firm grip. Full dentures require minimal at-home care and can be removed at night to prevent any accidental damage.

Implant-Supported Dentures: If you're missing full arches of teeth, you can eliminate the need for conventional dentures with implant-supported dentures. This form of denture is secured by small titanium posts surgically placed within your jawbone. The ideal candidate for implant-supported dentures has adequate jawbone density and good gum health to support dental implants. You can receive a new set of teeth that are as close to permanent as possible. Implant-supported dentures don't require dietary restrictions and can be cleaned just like your normal teeth.

Dentures Without the Wait: Is it possible to get dentures in one day? If you're looking for a quick and reliable way to get dentures without the process cutting into your schedule, Teeth-in-a-Day may be the option for you. This form of denture is ideal for patients that want a full smile while they wait for their more permanent solution to be made. They allow you to retain your facial shape, as well as properly speak and chew, before your final visit.

Denture FAQs

The denture process can be confusing. That's why our team is here to answer any questions you may have. Some common questions include:

Can I sleep with my dentures?

We highly recommend that you remove your dentures at night. This provides your gums and jawbone an opportunity to relax from the pressure of daytime denture wear. It's crucial that you thoroughly clean your dentures and store them in water when you go to sleep.

If your dentures feel loose or uncomfortable for any reason, call our office to schedule a visit. Our dentist can make any necessary adjustments for a firm and comfortable fit.

It's normal for speech to feel a little off after receiving your new dentures. However, this will disappear over time and allow you to converse normally.
