Full & Complete Dentures

When a full arch of teeth is missing, a full or complete denture is suggested. Atlantic Dental Partners offers a variety of full denture options depending on your clinical needs, your budget and your personal preferences. For patients who want the ultimate smile security, implanted supported dentures are preferred. This type of denture is anchored securely in place using as little as two to four dental implants. Implant supported dentures help patients avoid loose or ill-fitting dentures, which are especially common in lower dentures. They deliver maximum stability for your prosthetic teeth, enabling you to eat, speak and smile with much greater comfort. If you need to replace a full mouth of missing teeth, we can help you determine which type of full denture is best for you.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is used when a patient has multiple missing teeth as well as healthy existing teeth. We provide partial dentures that are fixed or removable. Our dentists take extra measures to ensure your gapped smile is restored with the best that modern dentistry has to offer. In many cases, we can deliver your partial dentures in one or two visits.

To learn more about our full and partial denture options, contact Atlantic Dental Partners today to schedule a consultation. We’ve invested in cutting-edge technology to ensure your teeth replacement experience is fast, accurate and rewarding. To help you afford your dentures, our Malden and Jamaica Plain offices offer flexible payment plans and insurance acceptance.


Dentures FAQs

Should I get traditional dentures or implant-supported dentures?

Traditional dentures are molded to fit securely on top of the gums with a denture adhesive. This added pressure can lead to some gum soreness, especially in the first couple of weeks of wearing them. Implant-supported dentures are very sturdy, stable restorations that attach to implants that are surgically placed in the gums. They require a healthy jawbone, they're far more invasive than traditional dentures, and they require more recovery time. If you need help deciding which option to choose, our team will be happy to help you at your consultation.

How do you take care of dentures?

Custom dentures are an investment, so you will want them to look nice and natural and last for as long as possible. Dentures have to be removed and cleaned every night. You will need to get a denture cleaner and a soft-bristle toothbrush, as most toothbrushes and toothpastes are too abrasive for dentures. After brushing them, they should be soaked in a denture solution overnight to kill more bacteria and keep them moist. There are also denture stain removers you can use to keep them looking just as white as when you received them.

Can I sleep in my dentures?

Patients can sleep with their dentures on rare occasions, but it is not recommended. Even implant-supported dentures should be removed at night. This allows the gums a chance to relax, and patients find that it's more comfortable to sleep without them. The mouth also tends to dry out during the night, and dentures need to be kept in a moist environment in order to hold their proper shape. If you do decide to sleep in your dentures, you should still remove them to brush and clean them properly before placing them back in your mouth for the night.
