LEARN ABOUT DENTAL DENTURES
What Are Dental Dentures?
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are a solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile but also your oral health.
In addition to restoring some function, dental dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech.
Options for Affordable Denture Solutions in Boynton Beach, FL:
- Full Dentures: If you lost all your natural teeth from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your smile and allow you to chew and enjoy your food better.
- Removable Partial Dentures: Used for people who have lost several teeth, these dentures fit snugly between your natural teeth to give your mouth a full and beautiful smile and restore chewing ability.
- Implant Supported Dentures and Partials: Implant Supported Dentures are a great option for securing your dentures permanently or removable to restore your dental health, smile and chewing ability.
Similar to traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures have a gum-colored acrylic base that holds natural-looking artificial teeth. Usually, these are made from materials that mimic the look of natural enamel, such as porcelain, ceramic, or resin. The primary difference between implant-retained dentures and traditional ones is the more natural look and optimal stability that allows patients to function naturally. During your procedure in our Boynton Beach, FL office, four to eight dental implants will be surgically placed below your gumline to ground the replacement teeth in place. This provides your implant with a strong, durable, and stable foundation that doesn’t rely on natural suction or denture adhesive, which isn’t always effective.

What are dentures made of?
Dentures can be made from a couple different materials depending on the type of denture. Dentures are commonly made from the following 3 materials. Acrylic: Acrylic is a stiff resin material. For dentures, it is typically pink at the base and gum area, and a more natural tooth color for the replacement teeth. Metal: Metal is often used for the base of your dentures and typically contains cobalt or chrome. Plastic: Flexible partial dentures can be made from a flexible plastic that fits tightly into your mouth called thermoplast.
How do you clean dentures?
Your dentures need regular care to help ensure they don’t have food particles or bacteria on them. When they do, that increases your risk of decay and gum disease of any remaining teeth. You can clean your partial or complete dentures with a denture brush , denture paste and a cleaner made for dentures. They can be stored in a denture bath while they are not being used. Don’t use anything abrasive like toothpastes on your dentures, though, or you could damage them.
How long do dentures last?
Dentures are meant to last years with proper routine checks of supporting gums and teeth, relines and minor adjustments.
