We Provide Dentures At An Affordable Price In Tampa, Plant City, Lakeland, Bartow & Across Tampa Bay Areas
Dentures are a removable prosthetic used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. There are several types of denture products your dentist may suggest, including complete dentures or partial dentures, both of which can be made to be removable or permanent.
Complete dentures are typically used when the entire upper, lower or both set of teeth need replaced. A complete set can either be either a standard method or immediate. The standard method is to make the prosthetic teeth after your natural teeth are taken out and the tissues of your gums have begun to heal. They are ready to be placed in the mouth about eight to twelve weeks, following the removal of your teeth. Immediate dentures are made before the removal of your teeth and can be put in place as soon as your teeth have been removed. Immediate dentures are usually requested by people who prefer not to be without teeth while healing. The disadvantage to immediate dentures is the gums and bones gradually shrink, especially while your mouth is healing from the tooth removal, so they usually require several adjustments for proper fitting.

Both full and partial dentures can be permanently attached to a tooth implant. A dental implant is a device that is embedded in the jaw bone by a dentist who is experienced in tooth implants. Whether you choose a complete, partial or dental implants, there are a number of benefits, including:
- Easier chewing ability
- Improved speech
- Facial support
- Slowed bone loss
- Increased self-esteem
Partial dentures typically consists of one or more replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base and held in place in the mouth by connected metal framework. A partial is used when there is one or more natural teeth remaining. A partial is worn to fill in the spaces made by missing teeth and it helps to prevent other natural teeth from changing position, which can cause gaps in other teeth.
