Types of Dentures We Offer
Our Denville dental specialist offers several different types of dentures so our patients can choose a solution that works best for them.
Conventional dentures are custom made prosthetics to replace either all of the upper or lower teeth. Dentures sit directly on top of your gums and create a suction in the roof of your mouth to help hold them in place. Dentures are removable and must be taken out at night before going to bed.
Partial dentures are custom made prosthetics to replace missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. This type of denture clips on to the remaining teeth in the jaw for stability and sit directly on top of the gums for support. Partials are removable and must be taken out at night before going to bed.
Implant supported dentures, or overdentures, are similar to conventional dentures but use dental implants to provide stability and security. Overdentures “snap” into place over dental implants and are used when the natural gum and jawbone cannot provide enough stability for a conventional denture. Overdentures are removable and must still be taken out at night before bed.

Caring For Your Denture
Removable dentures need to be cleaned thoroughly each day to keep them fresh and reduce the chances of an oral infection. Soak your prosthesis in a denture cleanser overnight, then rinse and brush it thoroughly the next day. It’s also recommended that you clean your gums with an extra-soft toothbrush or washcloth at least twice a day.
Since our bone structures can change with time, regular denture exams and periodic adjustments are needed. If your denture starts to feel loose after a few years, a relining may be recommended.
