Full & Partial Dentures
What is a Denture or Partial?
Both dentures and partials help to transform your entire smile, both aesthetically and functionally. If you're missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed. Dentures are prosthetic devices assembled to restore missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth.
Traditional dentures are removable and simply “sit” on the gums. Dentures have been around for many years and are still an option for some patients. A well-made traditional denture can give years of service. Unfortunately, this type of denture is prone to moving every time you eat, talk, or even open your mouth due the gum and bone continuing to shrink. As your fit changes, traditional dentures should be relined or rebased regularly.
Implant supported dentures help preserve the gum and bone, improve fit and function. Therefore they are a better long term solution for missing teeth. Dr. Grabiak is experienced in the treatment of missing teeth with both traditional and implant supported dentures. Dr. Grabiak is involved in the clinical and laboratory aspects of each denture and implant supported denture made in the office. He has experience treating cases that are straightforward to very complex. While addressing fit, comfort, and esthetics, Dr. Grabiak understands that each patient needs a different level of support, which he and his staff can accommodate.
