Dentures

Tooth loss affects your oral health, appearance, and function. For many, it is also a source of self-consciousness.

Removable full or partial dentures can replace missing teeth to restore your bite and boost your confidence.

Dentist David Babb provides both traditional and implant-supported dentures at his Beaufort, SC, practice. Take a closer look...

Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch, our dental team can find a solution to meet your needs.

Dentures Can Address a Variety of Needs

Whether you are missing a few teeth or all of your teeth, dentist David Babb can help. At our Beaufort, SC, practice, we can provide dentures that help patients suffering from:

Sporadic Tooth Loss

If you have suffered tooth loss in different areas, a partial denture can fill gaps and complete your smile.

Localized Tooth Loss

People with consecutive tooth loss (missing several teeth in a row) can benefit from a custom partial denture.

Complete Tooth Loss

Patients who have lost all of their teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both can restore their smile with a full denture.

Infected or Damaged Teeth

Left untreated, tooth decay and damaged teeth can take a serious toll on your appearance and oral health. If your teeth are too compromised to be restored, a denture can replace them.

It is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Babb and his staff! They are all very nice and have great attitudes. I recently had veneers put on my front 2 teeth by Dr. Babb and Andrea, and I can't even tell that they aren't real. Better yet, my wife was amazed at the quality of work and how well the color matched my natural teeth. Very good work from the entire staff, I will definitely be going back to Beaufort River Dental!

Types of Dentures

We offer a few types of dentures at our Beaufort, SC, practice. Your dentist will recommend a restoration based on your unique needs:

Full Traditional Dentures

A full denture consists of a gum-colored acrylic base with artificial teeth. These removable dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by a combination of suction and dental adhesives.

Partial denture

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are an excellent option for those with some remaining healthy teeth. We provide partials made with Valplast®, a natural-looking material designed to achieve a snug fit among remaining teeth. Partials stay in place without the need for metal clasps.

Implant-Supported Denture

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that not only hold dentures firmly in place at all times, but also prevent the jawbone recession that happens in the absence of tooth roots. For the right candidates, implant dentures provide virtually the same level of function as natural teeth.

Treatment Timeline

Non-implant dentures require at least two appointments. Here is what to expect during the process:

Preparatory Procedures

In some cases, individuals must resolve oral health issues prior to denture placement. This may require extractions, gum therapy, bone grafting, or other restorative treatments. This will add time to your total treatment.

Dental Impressions

Once any necessary preparatory procedures have been completed, your dentist will take dental impressions of your gums and any remaining teeth. Dr. Babb uses digital impressions, which are faster and more comfortable than traditional impressions.

Fabrication

Your impressions will be sent to our partner dental lab, where they will be used to craft your custom denture. A skilled lab technician will use high-quality materials and hand-finish your restoration for truly lifelike results and a precise fit.

Placement

In general, it takes an average of three weeks for the lab to fabricate your denture. Once complete, they will ship it back to our Beaufort office, where we will schedule you for a fitting appointment. Dr. Babb will make any necessary adjustments at that time to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

What About Implant Dentures?

Those who choose implant-supported dentures can expect a longer timeline. Dental implants will be placed into the jaw during an oral surgery appointment. Once placed, dental implants must integrate with the bone tissue over the course of three to six months before they can support a restoration. In the meantime, you will be provided with a temporary denture.

When the dental implants have completely integrated, abutments (connector devices) will be attached to each implant. These extend slightly above the gum line and serve as anchors for your new denture. Once the gums have healed, your dentist can begin crafting your denture.
