Dentures, Partials & Implant Supported Dentures
Not your grandmother’s dentures
If you are looking for a solution for lost or failing teeth, your Hixon dental team at Signature Smiles can help. We know that on top of the embarrassment, tooth loss can lead to further damage of the oral structure. Dentures, partials or implant supported dentures are options we can discuss with you.
Dentures have come a long way in recent years. Most picture the clunky, ill-fitting dentures of their grandparents. These days’ dentures are a much different experience. A denture by Dr. Conner can change your daily life in many ways. If you have total tooth loss and want to regain your self-confidence and ability to smile and eat normally, we can help.
We will first measure and take a series of impressions of your mouth and jaw to ensure the dentures fit you perfectly. Then we will create a model for you to try. The model will be adjusted for shape, color and fit before your final denture is made.
After your final denture is completed, any necessary adjustments can be made to ensure a great looking smile that is comfortable and functional.
If you have remaining natural teeth, a partial denture may be a great option. A fixed bridge can be made to replace missing teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. The bridge is then cemented into place. A removable partial can also be placed.
Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A partial denture can help you smile and eat with confidence.
Implant supported dentures
Implant supported dentures placed by Dr. Conner consist of a full arch prosthesis that is connected securely to multiple implants that lock the denture in place. Because the implants have been embedded in the jawbone, the denture that connects to the implants will not shift or move. The visible portion of the dentures are made with such attention to detail, things like the slight variance in color; translucency and shape of natural teeth are replicated.
