Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth set in an acrylic base that is tinted and shaped to resemble your gums. The false teeth may be made of ceramic, porcelain, or acrylic.

Custom designed to fit over the arch of your gums, dentures stay in place through a specialized adhesive or by surgically placed dental implants. They’re the fastest and most affordable way to replace a large number of missing teeth.

Dr. Malik gives you personalized attention so you can choose from:

  • Full dentures: Covering an entire arch
  • Partial dentures: Replacing a few missing teeth while using remaining teeth for support
  • Over dentures: Replacing missing teeth while leaving space for remaining teeth
  • Implant-supported dentures: Clipping onto surgically placed dental implants

Why do I need dentures?

You need to replace your missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid bone loss and to minimize the chance of your gums growing infected. Dentures allow you to chew your food properly, aiding in good digestion. They also preserve the natural contours of your face, avoiding the sunken-in look that comes with missing teeth.

When you arrive at Unique Dental for a consultation on dentures, Dr. Malik takes impressions of your mouth, which go to a lab that creates your custom-designed dentures. In the meantime, he fits you with temporary dentures so you can chew and feel confident of your smile.

Don’t dentures slip?

Dr. Malik designs your dentures to fit snugly and minimize the chance of slipping. You can also choose implant-supported dentures for extra security.

What are implant-supported dentures?

Implant-supported dentures look like traditional dentures, but instead of being held in place by adhesive, they fit over dental implants that Dr. Malik surgically places in your gums. Most men and women need about four to six dental implants for each denture.

Implant-supported dentures let you eat and smile without thinking about your dentures. Many of the men and women who’ve received implant-supported dentures at Unique Dental Care say their dentures look and feel just like natural teeth.
