Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable or fixed dental appliances that replace missing or extracted permanent teeth. They closely resemble your natural teeth and can dramatically enhance the look and function of your smile. The Reality Bites Dental experts customize each set of dentures based on your preferences, needs, lifestyle, and goals.


What are the different types of dentures?

Reality Bites Dental offers the following types of dentures:

Partial dentures

Partial dentures replace some natural teeth. They may replace all of your top or all of your bottom teeth.


Full dentures

Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth. These dentures can either be removable or fixed in place. 


Traditional removable dentures

Traditional dentures are removable and rest comfortably and snuggly on your gums. You can take them out of your mouth at night when you sleep or as needed.


Implant-supported dentures

Reality Bites Dental specializes in placing All-on-4® implant-supported dentures. These dentures bond to dental implants inserted into your jaw: four on the top and four on the bottom of your mouth. 


What benefits do dentures offer?

Dentures offer the following benefits for people with missing or extracted permanent teeth:

  • Elimination of tooth gaps
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Reduced risk of adjacent tooth shifting
  • Improved jawbone and oral health
  • Enhanced facial contours
  • Improved aesthetics
  • A more beautiful smile
  • Greater self-confidence

Your dentist tailors each cosmetic dentistry or general dentistry treatment based on your needs, goals, and preferences. You might receive full or partial fixed or traditional dentures. 


What can I expect when receiving dentures?

Getting dentures at Reality Bites Dental involves a series of appointments, in which you’re involved in the decision-making process.

Your dentist may first recommend extraction or a bone grafting procedure before you undergo dental implant placement.

If you’re a candidate for traditional dentures, your provider digitally scans your mouth and creates custom-fitted partial or full dentures. They ensure they fit your mouth properly and comfortably. Clean your dentures as instructed and remove them before you go to sleep.

Inserting dental implants involves multiple steps. Your dentist numbs the treatment area and inserts metal posts into your jaw. After a healing period, they customize All-on-4 or other dentures that bond to the implants.

The goal at Reality Bites Dental is to exceed your expectations and achieve the confidence and quality of life you deserve.
