Dentures & Denture Replacement
If you’ve lost your natural teeth from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing the missing teeth can benefit your appearance and make it easier for you to speak and eat. Dentures are removable devices made to resemble the appearance of natural teeth and may even improve the look of your smile. Calapooia Family Dental offers a variety of denture options to meet your needs.
All-on-4® Fixed Implant Bridge
All-on-4® treatment is an innovative solution that offers function, esthetics, speech, and self-esteem to patients. Four to six dental implants are placed in the jawbone. In most instances, a temporary bridge can be attached to those implants the same day they are placed with no waiting. For more information on this advanced technique, click here.
Implants Attached To Dentures
Traditional dental implants can also be used to hold dentures in place. An implant may help preserve the jawbone and provide stability and support. To learn more about implant placement, see the oral surgery page of this website.
Conventional dentures are a removable dental appliance to replace missing teeth. The process of making your custom denture may involve several appointments over a few weeks, starting with an impression and measurements. Additional appointments to shape, fit, and match your dentures are scheduled as needed.
Dentures are durable and can last many years. Proper oral care with your dental appliance includes cleaning, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits.
