If you’ve experienced extensive tooth loss or are planning to have several teeth taken out, you need an efficient and economical plan for replacing them. Our custom dentures in Hickory, NC provide you with the confidence you need to smile again! Depending on your situation, at Hickory Dental Care in Hickory, North Carolina we offer a variety of denture designs to choose from.
Partial Dentures — To prevent altering your adjacent healthy teeth, a partial denture simply snaps into place, filling in the gap left by the ones that are missing. A partial can be made of a chrome base or more flexible pink acrylic to blend in with your gingiva.
Full Dentures (“Plates”) — A conventional denture replaces all of your teeth at one time. It rests directly on top of your gum tissues, creating a seal between the prosthesis and your gums.
Implant Stabilized Overdentures — This prosthesis is similar to a traditional full denture, except there are locators underneath that allow it to snap on and off of 2-4 implants for added security throughout the day. Sometimes it’s possible to retrofit a conventional denture to make it into an overdenture.
Hybrid Implant Dentures — Similar to an extended dental bridge, hybrid dentures are a “U” shaped prosthesis that only cover the natural curvature of your smile’s arch. They replace all of the teeth on that arch at once and are permanently anchored onto as few as four traditional dental implants. There’s no “plate” to take in and out at night. Plus, the extra space that’s freed up makes them easier to talk and eat with.
