Dentures / Turbyfill
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth used when a patient has lost real teeth.
Patients lose their teeth to a variety of reasons. including:
- Severe malnutrition
- Genetic defects
- Poor oral hygiene
Dentures give better chewing abilities and greater aesthetic appeal by providing the illusion of natural teeth.
What's more dentures can now be stabilized with an implant procedure bringing more comfort and better chewing abilities to the denture wearer.
Turbyfill Denture Technique
Developed by Dr. Jack Turbyfill, a world-renowned expert on dentures, Turbyfill dentures are prosthodontic dentures specially created to balance a patient's occlusion (the contact between the upper and lower teeth during eating or at rest) and aesthetics and accommodate the loss of bone and gum tissue.
Advantages of Turbyfill Dentures?
- Turbyfill Dentures captures a copy of a person's mouth while they are eating, chewing, and speaking with great accuracy thus making them amazingly comfortable and enhances the patient's facial appearance.
- The all-porcelain artificial teeth are more attractive and durable than traditional plastic materials.
- Ideal for denture wearers who have experienced bone and/or tissue degeneration with other types of dentures. Many of these problems associated with common dentures are so well controlled with Turbyfill that they tend to not exist.
- Poor fitting dentures can cause sore spots in your mouth as well as stomach problems from not being able to chew food properly. With Turbyfill dentures, bone deterioration, speech difficulties, shrinkage, eating favorite foods, loose fitting, even that noisy clicking sound all becomes a non-issue.
- More durable - fabricated under high heat and pressure
- Stain and break resistant - can last 10+ years vs. less than a year
- Better fit - softer impression materials create a more accurate denture
- Staying power - post dams available in lab relines help keep dentures in place
- Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some but not all of their teeth.
- Fixed partial dentures (also known as permanent bridges) are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining natural teeth as well as synthetic materials that are sculpted to resemble teeth.
- Complete dentures or full dentures are for patients who are missing all their upper or lower teeth.
