Dentures and Partials in Sarasota, Florida

Types of Dentures

Dentures can be partial or complete. Complete dentures are used if all teeth are missing, but partial dentures can be fabricated when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in spaces created by missing teeth but also prevents other teeth from shifting.

Complete and partial dentures may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time, the patient will go without teeth.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, we will typically take new impressions for a new denture or make the proper adjustments to the existing appliance.

Treatment with Dentures in Sarasota, FL

Before treatment, we will work with you to determine if you want traditional or implant-supported dentures. Our team will also determine if you require a partial or complete denture. We take multiple dental impressions to create the base and false teeth to create an immediate denture. Additionally, we work with patients to color-match the false teeth if they have many of their natural teeth left.

While treatment is longer with dental implants, patients can enjoy more benefits. Dental implants can create a more stable bite, longer-lasting restorations, and ease of use. 

For implant-secured dentures, we begin treatment by taking dental impressions to create a temporary denture to begin treatment. Then, we place the implants. We place the implant posts underneath the gums in the jaw bone. Over time, the implants fuse with the jaw bone to create a stable foundation for the dentures. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dr. Benson has advanced training in implant dentistry and can help edentulous patients achieve a stable new smile with an implant-supported denture. Using several strategically placed implants that hold your denture in place, implant dentures are permanent and stable.

The process of placing an implant denture may require several months of healing between the two major phases of treatment. Dr. Benson will recommend the most suitable plan for replacing your teeth, and in some cases, immediate placement is possible with advanced planning.

We offer the benefit of in-house digital technology and the ability to perform all phases of treatment in our office. This consistency of care supports a successful outcome and helps patients feel more comfortable throughout the process.
