Dr. Deegan uses excellent labs in the USA and the best available materials, so your teeth will last and look beautiful years from now.
Upper vs. Lower Dentures
Upper dentures can be made to have suction. Most people can wear them successfully. A small percentage of people have a very strong gag reflex which does not allow them to wear a full upper denture which covers the palate. Implants with Locator snaps can retain and denture without a palate.
Lower dentures are less stable and retentive than upper dentures. More people have problems wearing lower dentures. Implants can help stabilize and retain a problematic lower denture.
Implants and Dentures
A few strategically placed implants with snap attachments can be fabricated into the denture can help retain a problem denture. You can finally be rid of sticky denture paste or the need to cover the palate for denture retention, and be able to chew better and feel confident.
Don’t be worried that you’ll have to go toothless before you can have a denture made. An Immediate Denture can be made ahead of time, so on the day you have your last “bad teeth” extracted, you will leave the office with your new immediate denture in place. You never have to go without teeth. When the gums are fully healed in a few months, the dentures can either be relined to fit perfectly, or new Custom Dentures can be made to give you the perfect smile that you want.
Removable Partial Dentures
These dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to gum-colored plastic bases. Depending on your needs, Dr. Deegan will design a partial denture especially for you. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your remaining natural teeth, making it secure and stable. Some cases can be designed with Porcelain Crowns on some remaining teeth with precision attachments which a removable partial denture will snap into, with no visible metal clasps and a lot more retention. Partial dentures can be made with attachments to implants as well. Over 30 years of experience in this highly technical field will assure you of excellent results you will be happy with.
Our goal is to help every patient experience the benefits of good oral health and a beautiful smile. We value the trust you have placed in our office and strive to provide solutions that meet your dental needs and expectations of care.
