Partials & DenturesAn Overview
Our Fallston dentist office provides traditional and dental implant secured dentures to fit your unique oral health needs and cosmetic goals. With advancements in modern dentistry, dentures are now more natural looking, better fitting and more durable.
Dr. Elliott works with patients on an individual basis, designing complete and partial dentures that are custom fit to your needs for optimal comfort and natural appearance. Our dentures are made with beautiful, life-like materials and the finest fracture-resistant denture base materials available.
We partner with a dedicated local denture lab for custom dental fabrications. Our lab can perform denture repairs, as well as relining your denture for a better fit. For patients suffering from ill fitting dentures, Dr. Elliott may recommend dental implants to permanently secure the denture to avoid slippage.
Partials & Dentures What to Expect
Slippage is a common problem for denture wearers. When accurately designed, fitted dentures can prevent slippage, but greater stability can come from the use of dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures can also do away with the need for your upper denture to totally cover the roof of your mouth – eliminating gagging and improving your ability to taste food.
We offer metal-free flexible partial dentures for a natural, no-metal-clasps appearance. Many people consider them the most aesthetic, life-like partial dentures available today. Dental Implants can also be used to hold in and stabilize your partial or full dentures.
If you are missing several or all of your teeth and need an immediate replacement, temporary dentures, called “Immediate Dentures” can be used. After extractions the bone in the gums tends to shrink. Once the bone shrinkage has lessened, after 6 months to one year, a new denture is made. Further bone loss can be deterred by placing dental implants.
