At Brownsburg Dental Professionals, PC, we strive to help all of our patients attain a beautiful smile. We understand that a patient’s teeth can suffer from a variety of dental problems, ranging from tooth decay, broken teeth, or even tooth loss. When you stop by to see your Indianapolis and Brownsburg dentist, we’re more than capable of helping you with even the most severe of these problems. For example, for those with missing teeth, we’re proud to offer our excellently-crafted dentures to restore even a badly damaged smile.

Types of Dentures

We offer several different types of dentures depending on your dental situation. These include the following.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures consist of both a top and a bottom plate that are able to be crafted in a variety of different ways in order to accommodate a patient’s remaining teeth. If there are only a few teeth that still remain, they’ll usually be extracted in order to make room for the dentures. The bottom denture will fit comfortably over the gum line so that there will be room for the tongue while the top denture will cover the palate of the upper mouth to hold it in place.

Partial Dentures

If you’re missing teeth, but you still have many others left and the gums are in good condition, partial dentures will likely be the choice for you. These consist of a removable acrylic bridge along with a metal framework that will fit around the remaining teeth to fill in the gaps. Partial dentures are typically used as a less invasive and non-surgical alternative to dental implants, another common tooth restoration option.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures, often known as temporary dentures, are placed in your mouth right after you’ve had a tooth extraction. You’ll need to wait for your gums to heal before you can get your permanent dentures put in; during this waiting period, immediate dentures will be used to preserve your smile.

Advantages of Dentures

Some of the advantages of choosing dentures as a tooth-replacement method are as follows:
  • Creating and placing dentures is a very simple process for a patient and it won’t require any surgery.
  • If you happen to lose any more teeth in the future, the dentures can easily be modified to add extra ones onto them.
  • It’s a relatively inexpensive option for replacing teeth.
  • Dr. John A. Loeffler is exceptional at creating dentures and has decades of experience in crafting sets of dentures that will give you the most comfort and also the best function.

Removable vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

One further option you’ll have with your dentures is the choice between removable and implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures differ from traditional removable dentures because they’re firmly attached to your mouth with the usage of dental implants. This will allow the dentures to be fully stable inside your mouth and you won’t have to worry about them slipping. Also, they’ll provide fantastic chewing power – you won’t even have to be as careful about watching the foods that you eat.
