Dentures

35You can complete your appearance with beautiful dentures. At Camelot Family Dental, we provide state-of-the-art denture options for our patients who are missing teeth.

Missing teeth can result from physical trauma, aging, gum disease, or dental decay. If you would like to enjoy all of the benefits of a full and complete smile again, come talk to Dr. Cummin about dentures.

Dr. Cummins offers her patients two options: Traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are porcelain or plastic teeth that are held in place by a plastic base. This plastic pink base seals with the gums to keep the dentures in the mouth.

Traditional dentures will give you a full, white, beautiful smile. Caring for them is simple—all you have to do is let them soak in denture cleaner. With some practice, traditional dentures will make daily habits like eating and speaking easier than they are with missing teeth.

Traditional dentures are a great option for those who have experienced bone loss in the jaw. They do not need bone volume to be held in place. They are also one of the most affordable tooth replacement options.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are attractive replacement teeth held in place by dental implants. Dental implants are medical-grade titanium rods that are placed into the jawbone. The dentures then hook onto the implants, which are placed in strategic locations throughout the mouth.

Dental implant dentures are incredibly reliable. Some of the benefits that implant-supported dentures provide include:

Jaw Preservation | Dental implants stimulate the jawbone in the same way that real tooth roots do. This stimulation will keep the jawbone well supported for years to come. Dental implants prevent the jawbone from deteriorating or collapsing, which keeps you looking young and healthy.
Lifetime Solution | Implant-supported dentures can be a lifelong tooth replacement solution. These beautiful and reliable replacement teeth will last the rest of your life.
Always Secure: What makes implant-supported dentures so reliable? Because the dentures are anchored to the jawbone, your replacement teeth will never shift while you are chewing,smiling, or speaking.

The best way to find out which denture option is right for you is by seeing a dentist you trust. Dr. Cummins can tell you more about which type of dentures will give you the perfect smile you’re looking for.
