This section of the gallery displays cases where all or part of the patient's teeth were missing. In these cases, traditional removable full or partial dentures were used to restore form and function to the patient.
Dentures Gallery Case 1
This patient had some severe gum and bone problems, which required the removal of all the upper teeth except for the two front teeth.
A removable partial denture was made that closely matched his remaining front two teeth. The result was a big improvement in his appearance especially when the treatment is compared to the before image on your left.
Dentures Gallery Case 2
This patient was missing his bottom molars on both sides of his mouth as indicated by the white arrows.
A removable partial denture was made to restore the chewing ability that he had lost.
Dentures Gallery Case 3
This patient is missing all of their teeth so a traditional full denture in needed to replace all the teeth.
We try to make the dentures look more realistic by placing the teeth a little crooked as you can see in the image above.
Dentures Gallery Case 4
This patient lost all of her teeth except the front four teeth on the bottom and part of a tooth on your bottom right, which has a gold crown on top of the root. It is important to save even the root of a tooth since that helps preserve the bone, which is critical especially on the bottom jaw.
This was the result. The patient smiled or talked, she did not show any of the metal that you see, which is required to hold the partial denture in place.
Dentures Gallery Case 5
This patient had a developmental defect that caused a malformation of the jaws as well as missing teeth.
A removable partial denture was made on both the top and bottom to replace the missing teeth to restore the esthetics and the ability to use the front teeth.
Dentures Gallery Case 6
This patient lost his front tooth in a skateboarding accident. The left front tooth was badly chipped and was repaired with tooth colored bonding but the root on the right front tooth was split in two and it could not be saved.
The temporary measure was to make a retainer with a tooth attached to the wire until the bone healed. After the bone healed, an implant could be placed.
