What Types of Dentures Are Available in Stuart, FL?

Dentures can be full or partial and are made of a durable plastic resin. These dentures can fit perfectly over the remaining ridge that previously held your teeth. The dentures are typically held in the mouth with a suctioning effect.

Conventional Full Dentures: These conform to the mouth naturally. They are custom-made to look like natural teeth for patients and function similar to natural teeth too.

Immediate Dentures: These are temporary for patients to transition into denture wearing. They are placed in the mouth directly after tooth extraction occurs. They don’t fit as well because the gums haven’t been given adequate time to heal.

Transitional Partial Dentures: These are removable plastic dentures that work as a temporary tooth replacement before the dental implant process.
