Dentures & PartialsEllicott City, MD

Dr. Denise Halliburton provides dentures to patients in her Ellicott City, MD dental office. Dentures are a restorative dentistry solution that restores multiple rows of teeth or even full arches of missing teeth. It is important to restore missing teeth in order to prevent dental infections, overcrowding, and even further tooth loss. Dentures are a great option for patients who want to treat problems with biting, speaking, and chewing that are caused by their missing teeth. We can also provide replacement dentures or new implant-secured dentures for patients looking for a longer-lasting restoration.

Dentures in Ellicott City, Maryland

Types of Dentures

A partial denture is similar to a dental bridge in that it replaces several consecutive missing teeth. Full dentures can replace all of the upper or lower teeth. Implant dentures are full or partial dentures that are permanently attached to the jaw using dental implants. Traditionally, dentures are removable prosthetics that are secured to the gums with adhesives. Dental implants offer a permanent option for dentures and help retain the function of the bite. With implants, patients do not require dietary restrictions and can easily eat the foods they love.

Denture Treatment

If you are receiving implant-secured dentures, Dr. Halliburton will refer you to a local surgeon for dental implant surgery. During this procedure, an oral surgeon inserts the titanium implant posts into the jaw. After the implants integrate with the jaw bone, you can return to our office for dental impressions. These impressions are used to fabricate your custom dentures.

We will provide you with a temporary denture while your permanent dentures are being created. Once the dentures are in place, we will provide you with at-home care instructions so you can properly care for your new restoration. Removable dentures will need to be cleaned and removed at night. They also require adhesives to stay in the mouth during the day. Implant-secured dentures also require daily cleaning, but are not removable and can function like natural teeth.
