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. Comeau 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.

Full Dentures In Fallston MD

If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Comeau will recommend full dentures to replace them. A full set of dentures is made of acrylic which will hold the set of fake teeth and is designed to fit snugly over the gums. This type of replacement teeth will take some time to get used to.

Once all the teeth are missing or are extracted, your bone and gums may shrink slightly, causing the dentures to not fit correctly. We will monitor you closely and make adjustments as needed especially for the first six months.

Partial Dentures

If you are only missing a few teeth and still have some remaining teeth that are healthy, Dr. Comeau will recommend a set of partial dentures. This type of replacement teeth will basically just fill in the gaps in your smile. This removable appliance utilizes metal clasps that will be anchored to your remaining teeth.

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. Comeau may recommend dental implants to permanently secure the denture. Dental implant-supported dentures are more natural than traditional dentures and are better for your oral health since implants replace the missing tooth root.

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 tooth 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.

Partials & Dentures FAQs

How long do partial dentures last?

The answer depends on your regular oral routine, visits to the dentist, and denture cleaning habits. If you practice good oral hygiene and consult a dentist regularly, most types of dentures can last for up to 15 years.

Can anyone get dentures?

Yes, just about anyone can qualify for dentures. Although, we recommend getting a full dental evaluation and fixing all underlying dental issues before getting them. Gum disease, tooth infections and more can affect the fit of your dentures.

What should I do if I have a broken denture?

If your denture is damaged or broken, do not use it and visit our dentist office for denture repair or a new denture. Damaged dentures can cause more harm to your mouth if worn incorrectly. They can cause lacerations, damage to your gums, and infections.
