Don’t let missing teeth destroy your smile or decrease your quality of life. An appealing set of full or partial dentures can restore your self-esteem and the day-to-day function of your teeth. Here at the Center for Dental Anesthesia, we provide a wide range of beautiful denture options.
Types of Dentures
At the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria we provide different type of dentures to meet the needs of our patients. If you are looking to replace missing teeth there are several different options for you to choose from.
If you are searching for the most secure denture option possible, implant dentures may be the best choice for you. Implant dentures, or permanent dentures, are not removable like traditional dentures. Instead, permanent dentures are anchored into the mouth, just like natural teeth.
While traditional dentures rest atop the gum tissue, implant dentures attach to the bone with implant posts. These produce a comfortable fit with a great deal of stability. Denture implant solutions provide benefits and advantages that are simply not achievable by traditional appliances. Denture implants attach to posts via a ball-and-socket or clip-and-bar design. This creates a perfect foundation for a brilliant smile and boosts one’s self-confidence a great deal.
Denture implants are replacement teeth that are attached to the jawbone by dental implants. Permanent dentures are:
- The most reliable form of dentures.
- Built to last.
- Easy to care for and clean.
In today’s world of modern dentistry, we are able to fashion traditional dentures from safe, comfortable, and durable materials. Full dentures are a complete set of upper or lower teeth that are supported by the tissues of the oral cavity. Partial dentures are several replacement teeth that are attached to the healthy teeth that still remain in the mouth.
Traditional dentures are removable for your convenience, and they are the best option for individuals who are missing a significant amount of jawbone. We also provide high-end dentures, which are composed of lifelike materials like acrylic resins that flawlessly imitate the look of natural teeth and gums.
Custom-made dentures are another specialty option we offer. Your custom dentures are set in a wax base, so you can try them on before the denture is completed. Together, we will work towards creating a denture that fits you snugly and gives you a completely natural look that you love.

Implant Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
Implant dentures provide a more stable, secure grip due to being secured with implants into your jaw. This reduces the slipping and gum irritation that traditional dentures can incur. Implant dentures look and feel more like real teeth, and with proper care can be a permanent solution to missing and failing teeth. Traditional dentures are less permanent, but are still an effective solution to fix your smile.
Choosing which type of denture is right for you considers a few factors. Most patients qualify for implant dentures, but they are not always necessary. Our dentists will assess if you have any gum diseases that need to be treated before proceeding with implant dentures. Similarly, diabetics need to have stable blood sugar before starting the procedure. Traditional dentures require less work to set up and can be a more flexible solution.
