Dentures & PartialsTowson, MD

If you’re missing multiple permanent teeth, you need a replacement as soon as possible. You can be more prone to developing further dental issues like facial sagging, bone loss, or tooth decay if you have lost your teeth. We recommend partial dentures for patients who are missing multiple teeth but have some of their natural teeth remaining. Complete dentures restore arches of missing teeth. However, we offer more than complete dentures and partials in Towson, MD. Restorative dentist Dr. Peter Diacoloukas can restore the smile’s complete form and function with many types of dentures. Dentures are one of the restorative dentistry procedures we provide to the public in Towson, Baltimore County. 

Dentures and Partials in Towson, MD

Types of Dentures

There are a variety of dentures patients can choose from. We will also collaborate with patients to determine which restoration suits their needs:

  • Traditional Full Dentures: When you think of dentures, you may think of these restorations. Traditional complete dentures are removable and restore both tooth arches. 
  • Partial Dentures: A partial denture can restore multiple consecutive missing teeth. While partial dentures may seem similar to dental bridges, they can restore teeth in different areas of the smile, not just one row of loose teeth. 
  • Conventional: We will attach a conventional denture after we remove the remaining teeth. Conventional dentures are also removable.
  • Overdenture: An overdenture uses dental implants to stay in place but is removable. 
  • Implant Retained Hybrid: Like an overdenture, a hybrid denture uses dental implants for support. It can use as few as four dental implants to secure missing teeth in the lower or upper arch and is NOT removable. 
  • Same Day: Also known as immediate dentures, patients who choose same-day dentures can receive extractions and a dental restoration in the same visit.

Treatment with Dentures and Partials in Towson, MD

Dr. Diacoloukas utilizes digital X-rays and scanning to plan treatment for his patients. Using X-rays, Dr. Diacoloukas can see your missing and remaining teeth, gum tissue, and jaw bone. If you are receiving implants and he may recommend bone grafting or ridge augmentation services so you have sufficient support. Dr. Diacoloukas will also plan extractions for patients receiving immediate dentures. No matter the type of denture you require, Dr. Diacoloukas will create a treatment plan and take accurate impressions of your smile. He will also work with Friendship Dental Lab to create the denture from high-quality materials. Dr. Diacoloukas will match the false teeth to adjacent natural teeth or brighten your smile with a new shade if applicable.

How Implant-Supported Dentures Improve Overall Health

When dental implants hold your dentures in place, you can easily speak and eat without worrying about your restoration slipping. Unlike traditional dentures, which use adhesive, implants support teeth at the root. Dental implants support the health of the gums and the jaw bone. As a result, patients who receive implant-secured dentures do not need to worry about aesthetic problems like facial sagging. 

Are Dentures Easy to Care For?

After you receive your dentures, you need to clean them daily to prevent bacterial buildup and staining. If you receive removable dentures, you can take your dentures out and soak them in a dissolvable cleaner. Implant-supported dentures can be simpler to care for because they are fixed in place. You can gently brush and floss between your new false teeth like your natural teeth.
