Immediate Dentures/Healing Dentures
Immediate dentures are delivered the same day as your dental surgery which is why we typically refer to our immediate dentures as healing dentures. The healing dentures allow you to leave the day of your surgery with functional teeth and the ability to smile. The healing dentures are a temporary set of dentures that will be used to fabricate the high-quality complete dentures after adequate healing time. The healing denture allows the advantages of trying out the initial tooth shape and color to make sure they are your best fit in the complete denture set and it also provides a backup set of dentures.
A partial denture is used when someone has some teeth present. They can help to restore function in the posterior and restore esthetics in the anterior. There are many variations of frameworks and clasps that are used to hold the partial denture in place. Below are the 2 most common types of partial dentures that we provide for our patients:
Cast Metal Partial Denture
Cast metal partial dentures are the strongest option cast for a partial denture as it has a metal framework that is supported by natural teeth. We work with you to choose a tooth color to blend with your natural teeth. A wax try-in helps us visualize your new smile to confirm the shade selection and tooth setup prior to the final delivery.
Acrylic Partial Denture/Flipper
Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than the cast metal partials but often cover more of the roof of the mouth and are not as strong as cast metal partial dentures. For these reasons we often recommend an acrylic partial denture/flipper if 1-3 teeth are missing or as a temporary appliance during a treatment plan when esthetics is an issue.
