Implant Retained Dentures
An implant-retained denture involves an implant anchor inserted into your mouth by your dental surgeon. This implant can then be connected to your dentures to provide stability, increase chewing force, reduce tissue irritation, and decrease bone loss.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures and partials are removable appliances that replace missing teeth for the function of eating and chewing and the purpose of appearance and comfort. They normally require replacement after approximately five years, due to the bone resorption and shrinkage of the tissue in the mouth.
Wright Denture Clinic (1997) Ltd. prides itself on the quality of dentures it provides for our patients. That's why we offer equilibrated dentures. This technique creates a better relationship between upper and lower dentures and reduces the number of adjustments after insertion. It ensures a better fit. They do require replacement after about 5 years because of the shrinkage of tissue in the mouth.
With sophisticated instrumentation and techniques all your facial information is recorded to recreate the character of your smile and restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles. The FACEBOW (Transfer Bow) registers closure and arc of rotation and reproduces the jaw movements. This data is then transferred to our articulator, which replicates that movement of your jaw and give us the relation of the upper to the lower.
Surgical Dentures – Immediate Dentures
Surgical dentures are constructed in our office before natural teeth are extracted. They are inserted in the mouth immediately after extractions are finished in the dentist office. Numerous temporary liners are required while healing and shrinkage occurs, which eventually lead to a reline. A final reline would occur approximately eight months following teeth extractions.
A denture reline is needed when a denture starts to slip or fall down due to constant bone and tissue changes in the mouth. Denture relines are usually required approximately every two years. It is the replacement of the pink acrylic inside the existing denture.
Repairs consist of repairing fractures on dentures and replacing broken or missing teeth.
