Are you looking for an affordable way to replace your missing teeth? Our Springfield dentures are designed to help your smile look its best, while supporting your facial tissues (lips and cheeks) for a more youthful profile.
“Plates” (full dentures) replace all of your upper or lower teeth with a single prosthesis. It rests directly on top of your gums, creating a suction to help hold it in place. These traditional dentures are an efficient and practical way to affordably replace all of your teeth at once. In some cases, our Springfield dentist can arrange to have them ready on the same day as any planned tooth extractions.
To prevent extracting any healthy teeth, Dr. Syed recommends fitting our Springfield denture patients with a partial. Partial dentures only replace the teeth that are missing. They have small arms that help hug your neighboring teeth to keep the appliance in place all day long.
There are two types of dentures and prostheses that can be paired with dental implants. One is a stabilized overdenture, that “snaps” onto 2-4 implants, keeping it in place during the day (but it’s still supposed to be removed at night.) The other is a hybrid prosthesis that follows the natural curve of your smile and is permanently affixed on top of 4-6 implants underneath, more like an extended bridge.
Springfield Denture Repairs
Over time, the acrylic that makes up your denture base can wear out or need to be adjusted. Sometimes, relining the prosthesis is necessary to keep it fitting comfortably. Be sure to bring your appliance with you to your six month checkups so that Dr. Syed can evaluate it for any necessary repairs.
