Functional, Custom-Made Tooth Replacement

Dentures have been helping patients regain their confidence and ability to chew their favorite foods for many years. Across the decades, they have evolved to become more functional and natural-looking than ever before. At New Haven Dental Group, we proudly offer both full and partial dentures to patients who have lost multiple teeth. If you are missing several — or even all — of your teeth, one of these treatments may be suitable for you.

Why Choose New Haven Dental Group for Dentures and Partials?

What Are Full and Partial Dentures?

full and partial dentures

A full denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. It consists of a gum-colored base and a row of artificial teeth, which are usually made out of porcelain or acrylic. Natural suction or a mild adhesive helps a full denture to remain in place.

A partial denture replaces several missing teeth at various places throughout a dental arch. You can think of it like a puzzle piece that fits in exactly where it is needed. It allows patients to retain their remaining natural teeth while still enjoying all the benefits of a denture. Small attachments help a partial denture to remain secure in the mouth during eating and speaking.

Many patients are candidates for implant-supported dentures, which are anchored in the jawbone via small titanium posts. This page focuses primarily on traditional dentures, but you can read more about dental implants and their many benefits on our website’s dental implant page.

What to Expect with Dentures

The denture process is not the same for every patient. Some individuals must first undergo tooth extractions. Following the extractions, you may have to wait several weeks while your mouth heals before our team can design your dentures. Or, you might opt for an immediate denture, which is placed on the same day as the extractions. An immediate denture must be adjusted soon thereafter to accommodate the changes in the mouth that happen following tooth extractions.

After you get used to using your dentures, you will still need to visit our team periodically for checkups and adjustments to your prosthetic. A traditional denture usually lasts for 5 – 8 years before changes in the patient’s mouth reach the point where minor adjustments are no longer able to make the denture fit well. Thereafter, you will have to get an entirely new denture.
