With specialty dentures, you have a variety of options.

The majority of dental patients are familiar with dentures, removable appliances designed to replace missing teeth. Not only do they improve a person's appearance, but they also make eating and talking much easier and help to preserve oral health. However, what you Denturesmay not know is that there are several types of specialty dentures available that cater to a person's specific needs. At Omni Dental Group in Bowie, MD, our family dentists--Dr. Siamak Aalemansour, Dr. Fariborz Baik and Dr. Sherwin Esfandiari--are well-versed in the types of specialty dentures and can make a determination on the best appliance for you. Learn more about specialty dentures from your family dentist here:

Full removable dentures

These restorations are the "false teeth" that most people think of when dentures come to mind. However, over the past few years, great strides have been taken to make removable dentures much more comfortable and realistic-looking. The base is made from a plastic-based material, while the teeth are carefully crafted from translucent porcelain. They fit snugly over the gum ridges with a dentist-recommended paste. With your family dentist at the center of your denture design and fitting, you can be assured that these dental replacements will look beautiful and natural not only to those you interact with, but you as well.

Partial removable dentures

If you still have some healthy natural teeth remaining, your Bowie family dentist may suggest using partial removable dentures to fill in the gaps. These look like smaller sections of their full counterparts, except they have metal clasps affix to the resin base that attach to the "anchor" teeth that remain in your mouth. They offer the same benefits as full dentures - they improve eating and speaking abilities and help maintain the health of the natural teeth you still have.

Implant-supported dentures

This is a revolutionary way to wear full dentures. Dental implants, which are placed under your gum line by your family dentist, have attachments to which dentures can connect, offering a stable and comfortable way for denture plates to stay in your mouth. These attachments can be permanent or removable, depending on what you and your family dentist decide is best.
