At Integrated Dental Arts in Greeley, CO Dr. Melvin Benson offers dentures and partial dentures as an option for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health. Modern dentures offer a natural appearance and are constructed using a lightweight acrylic base tinted to mimic the color variances in natural gum tissue and artificial teeth that simulate the reflectivity of real tooth enamel.
Dr. Benson offers cosmetic dentures that will be custom made to suit your natural smile, giving back your daily quality of life. Cosmetic dentures can be secured with either suction and adhesives or dental implants, also known as “all-on-four.”
Types of Dentures
There are several types of dentures and Dr. Benson will make the appropriate recommendation for your dental health needs after a thorough examination.
- Partial Denture: this type of dental appliance is like a dental bridge and replaces several missing teeth.
- Full Dentures: replace all of a person’s upper or lower teeth.
- Implant Dentures: permanently attaches a hybrid denture to the jaw using as few as four dental implants.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Whenever possible, Dr. Benson recommends dental implant secured dentures because of the health benefits they provide:
- Secure fit with no slippage
- Implanted posts reduce bone loss in the jaw
- No diet restrictions or need for daily maintenance
