Do you have full rows or arches of missing permanent teeth? Is your removable denture creating an unstable bite? Partial and complete dentures restore the appearance and function of the smile. Partial dentures replace rows of lost teeth while complete dentures can restore full arches of teeth. Dentures are a dental restoration that we offer in Gaithersburg, MD. While dentures are typically removable, we recommend dentures supported by dental implants. Dr. Stan Nova works with his father, Dr. Dmitry Nova, to provide dental implant surgery and secure dentures in place.
Removable vs. Implant Dentures
Traditional dentures are removable. Typically traditional dentures use snaps or adhesives which can be messy to use. Dentures consist of false teeth on a plastic gum-colored base. Adhesives or snaps stick the dentures to the gums. However, traditional dentures can easily slip around the mouth and do not offer a fully functional bite. As a result, many denture patients cannot eat hard or crunchy foods.
Implant-supported dentures are a great alternative to traditional dentures. Dental implants are titanium screws that replace teeth at the root. Dr. Nova can place the implants in the jaw bone to secure dentures in the mouth. With implant-supported dentures, patients do not need to worry about removing their dentures to sleep or eating certain foods.
Dentures in Gaithersburg, MD
We take dental impressions and digital scans before restorative care. The impressions act as a template for the denture prosthetic while the scans help us find the best places for the dental implants. In addition, we make sure that patients are in good oral health before they receive dentures. Dr. Dmitry Nova offers dental implant treatment that uses a flapless surgical method. He can place the dental implants without making incisions into the gum tissue. Once he places the implants and the implants fuse to the jawbone, patients can receive their permanent dentures.
