We offer conventional dentures, immediate dentures with extractions, partial dentures with esthetic clasps (See pictures below), and Flipper.
A. Conventional Dentures - This is when all the teeth are removed and the tissue and bone are given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue and bone to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.
B. Immediate Dentures - Prior to having your teeth removed, we takes measurements, impressions and has dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels. The dentures will need to be a final reline after the jaw bone has healed.
C. Partial Dentures - are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth. Partial dentures can be hooked on slightly prepared natural teeth, implants, specially-designed crowns, etc. Your partial dentures are personalized for your aesthetic desires whether you want to conceal clasps (see pictures below) of your partial dentures. Dr. Ho will be more than happy to assist you.
D. Flipper - is another option when you have one or two missing upper front teeth and financial restraint. Flipper can be used for smiling and talking, rather than normal eating.
We offer single tooth extraction or multiple extractions for dentures. Please call us for the consultation appointment.
