Partial and Full/Complete Dentures While these have the same qualities, partial dentures replace a few teeth whereas full dentures take the place of all your teeth on the top or bottom of your gum line. Full dentures are held in place by a suction or oral adhesive.
• Generally made of hard resin • Easy to chip or crack and wear down quickly compared to regular teeth so best to have them replaced every 5 years • Made out of a similar resin to artificial teeth or a more flexible polymer, the supporting structure of dentures that holds in the artificial teeth and resembles your natural gum line fits snuggly on your organic gum line • Improves your appearance and supports the structure of your mouth around the cheeks and lips • Not permanently fastened; can be taken out for cleaning and sleeping
• Disposed when permanent dentures are ready to be put in • Created before your teeth are replaced or removed • Used straight after tooth extraction and worn during healing • Easily refitted, accommodating mouth changes and swelling of gums and jaw
• Alternative to traditional dentures that feel extremely uncomfortable or you have only a few natural teeth left • Fitted over the roots of your natural teeth, resting here or on dental implants if you have no natural teeth • Easily removable

What are implant supported dentures?
Implants are inserted into your jawbone to prevent bone tissue loss. When attached to your implants, your dentures provide better functions of your mouth. You can choose to have removable dentures or permanently fixed ones.
How do you know if you are a candidate for dental implants?
If you are missing teeth and still have enough jawbone then you are likely a great candidate for implant supported dentures.
Your dentist will offer different treatments based on a comprehensive examination of your jaw. Cambrian Dental specialists will take x-rays and 3D images to make sure the procedure is right for you.
What is the next step?
After your consultation, follow up appointments and recommendations, you will be ready for a new set of teeth. The procedure can be performed in one day. Any necessary tooth extractions will be done, then dental implants are placed in an arch in your mouth and your set of esthetically pleasing dentures are attached. After the procedure, you may even notice increased strength in your chewing ability. Once your implants have healed, you will return for the final set of new dentures.
Rediscover the full capabilities of your teeth with implant supported dentures. You will feel more confident to have a conversation with your friends without stumbling over your old dentures or suffering in pain.
Clean your dentures everyday by running water over them to clean off food particles 1. Brush with a soft toothbrush using mild soap or denture cleaner - DO NOT use regular toothpaste, other cleaners or an electric toothbrush which will damage and wear away your dentures 2. Rinse well after cleaning 3.Clean your gums and natural teeth with a soft, wet toothbrush and toothpaste with fluoride or a soft washcloth if your brush is too harsh on your gums 4.Remove your dentures before sleeping so they don’t dislodge or get damaged plus this gives your gums time to relax 5.Submerge your dentures in warm water to keep them from drying out and misshaping or use a denture soaking solution only if your dentures have no metal components since this solution tarnishes metal
