Specialty dentures

Key Benefits of Centric-Line Posterior Teeth:
1. Enhanced Chewing Efficiency: The "knife-like" cutting action of Centric-Line posterior teeth significantly improves chewing efficiency. This allows patients to enjoy their meals with ease and confidence.

2. Decreased Occlusal Trauma: By reducing vertical and horizontal stress on the supporting ridges, Centric-Line teeth minimize the risk of occlusal trauma. This is particularly beneficial for patients with sensitive gums or compromised oral health.

3. Elimination of Lateral Forces: Centric-Line teeth eliminate lateral forces during mastication, preventing unnecessary strain on the surrounding tissues. This contributes to the longevity of the denture and enhances patient comfort.

4. Versatility in Applications: Centric-Line teeth have proven to be excellent in all applications, including overdenture treatment with implants and for patients with advanced alveolar bone resorption. Their adaptability makes them a valuable choice for various dental scenarios.

 

When traditional dentures are not favorable we can fabricate specialty dentures such as Neutral Zone for flat ridges, Parkinson's, and Stroke patients who have a difficult time with traditional dentures.  We carry cutter bars , Swissdent and Dr. French Centric line teeth for those with flat ridges. So if you feel you need something other than a standard denture please allow us to assess your needs and recommend a denture that is easier to chew with and custom designed for your situation. 

Pros:

- Long lasting back teeth being porcelain are achievable.

- easy to chew with and can resume chewing such things as peanuts, steaks, and other tougher foods.

Cons:

- There is no guided occlusion and a few find this difficult to get accustomed too but generally people find these teeth a marked improvement over traditionally cusped teeth..especially if flat ridges preclude the use of standard cusped teeth.

Myerson M-O Posterior Teeth:

While Centric-Line posterior teeth offer numerous advantages, it is important to consider alternative options. The Myerson M-O Posterior Teeth have a time-proven design that prioritizes maximum masticating efficiency while minimizing stress on the supporting ridges.

Unique Features of Myerson M-O Posterior Teeth:
1. Vitallium® Ribbon: The thin ribbon of Vitallium® material extending slightly beyond the occlusal surface of the tooth provides functional advantages not found in other posterior teeth. This feature enhances the overall performance and longevity of the tooth.

2. Reduced Stress on Ridges: Myerson M-O teeth are designed to distribute vertical and horizontal stress evenly, reducing the strain on the supporting ridges. This promotes long-term oral health and patient comfort.

cutter bar denture

Cutter bars are an older technology that accommodates people with flat ridges and who cannot get implant studs to keep the lower dentures in place. Once we insert this stye of back teeth they can chew steaks peanuts and all sort of foods they could not with standard dentures. Best of all Dan's dos not surcharge for any specialty tooth that we place. very few complains or adjustments are needed for this type of denture.
