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.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Elliott 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 are 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 made adjustments as needed especially for the first six months.
If you are only missing a few teeth and still have some remaining teeth that are healthy, Dr. Elliott 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. Elliott 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.
