Are you struggling to chew or speak due to missing teeth? Do you suffer from an oral health problem that requires tooth extraction? If so, partial or complete dentures in Voorhees may be the solution for you.
Dentures act as removable replacements for missing teeth and the tissues that surround them. Our practice provides several types of complete dentures and partial dentures to address your oral health challenges. While partial dentures are ideal for those who still have some of their natural teeth, you may be a candidate for a complete denture, also known as a full denture, if all your teeth are missing.
A traditional complete denture is a removable dental device that can replace all the teeth in a single arch, whether it’s the upper or lower teeth. Some people will require just one arch, while others may need two complete dentures. When replacing all of the teeth in an arch, complete dentures tend to cost the least. Complete dentures also require just a few steps to ensure a perfect fit. During the procedure, your dentist will remove all the teeth from an arch to make room for the prosthesis. After a healing period of about eight weeks, the dentures should fit correctly.

A transitional denture is recommended for those who are transitioning from one treatment to another. For example, transitional dentures may be used after damaged teeth are extracted to replace the missing teeth. As the dentist removes more teeth, more replacement teeth are added to the transitional prosthesis. When you’re ready to be fitted for your permanent dentures, the transitional dentures can be discarded.
A removable partial denture in Voorhees is a prosthesis that contains replacement teeth affixed to a gum-colored base. Sometimes, a metal framework will hold the denture in place while in use. A removable partial denture can be used for several teeth or just one tooth. Along with creating a more attractive smile by filling in missing teeth, removable partial dentures also keep surrounding teeth from shifting in your mouth.
With an immediate denture, you won’t have to go without front teeth while you wait for your mouth to heal from the extraction procedure. To create an immediate denture, the dentist will extract your damaged teeth over the course of four or five office visits. This begins with removing the eye teeth, and ends with the rest of your teeth being extracted during a future visit. Your immediate denture will be ready when the remaining teeth are removed. These dentures tend to be more costly than other varieties due to the number of follow-up visits and the time necessary to fabricate the prosthesis.
An implant-supported denture is also known as a permanent denture. Unlike a traditional removable denture that rests on the gums and requires the mouth muscles, suction, and denture adhesive it keep it in place, a permanent denture is attached to several dental implants embedded into the jaw bone. The benefit of an implant-supported denture is that you have teeth 24-hours-a-day. Dentists typically recommend denture implants for those who don’t have any teeth but have enough bone to support the dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are available in two types: ball-retained dentures that connect to ball-shaped attachments on the implants, and bar-retained dentures that connect to several implants by using a thin metal bar. Your dentist will determine which implant denture best meets your needs. READ MORE
