What Are Full Dentures?

Full dentures are a custom-made restoration that is designed to replace all your teeth along the top or bottom row of your mouth. Completely removable for easy cleaning, full dentures are created according to a patient’s individual measurements, which Dr. Bannan will retrieve upon examination of your oral structure.

How Do They Work?

When having full dentures put into place, your natural suction is what will hold them in place. Should you require a bottom denture, it will be made in the shape of a horseshoe to allow room for your tongue. Its gum-colored base will sit on top of your gums. If you are in need of an upper denture, it will be made to fill the entire roof of your mouth.

Some patients find additional support and security with the use of dental adhesive, which can be placed on the base of the dentures.

Indications You May Need a Full Denture

  • Missing teeth
  • Consistent toothaches

During your consultation with Dr. Bannan, he will examine your mouth and determine if you are a qualified candidate for full dentures. If so, you can expect impressions to be taken of your smile as well as measurements to ensure that the dental lab technicians craft your restoration properly, so it fits comfortably when placed.

Benefits of Full Dentures
