Full & Partial Dentures
Several options are available for patients who want to replace missing teeth, including dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures. Full and partial dentures are an excellent choice for patients who want a fast, effective, and economical tooth replacement option.
Complete Dentures for Full Tooth Replacement
We use full and partial removable dentures in different situations; full or complete dentures are appropriate for patients with total tooth loss in an upper or lower dental arch. These dentures are designed with artificial teeth set in an acrylic, gum-colored base.
Complete dentures rely on a combination of natural suction and denture adhesives; if you want a more stable solution, we recommend considering implant-supported dentures.
Partial Dentures Replace a Few Missing Teeth
Partial removable dentures are used when fewer teeth within the dental arch are missing. Using a metal and acrylic framework, the partial snaps into place and uses existing teeth for support.
Partials are easy to care for because you can remove them for easy cleaning with your toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. This keeps your dentures fresh and clean and helps extend their lifespan.
Dentures Are an Affordable Tooth Replacement
There are several reasons why you might choose removable dentures instead of another tooth replacement. Dentures are often a more affordable option and can give you back your beautiful smile even on a budget.
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement, but not everyone who wants implants is a good candidate. In this case, dentures are a great interim solution while you wait for additional implant procedures.
Patients find that full and partial dentures are easy to use, simple to clean and care for and restore their ability to eat, speak, and smile without feeling self-conscious.
Not Your Grandparents’ Dentures!
If you’ve been considering complete dentures but are held back by visions of fake-looking artificial teeth, you should know that the look, fit, and feel of dentures has improved vastly since your grandparents’ days.
Today, tremendous thought goes into designing each set of dentures to enhance your appearance, not detract from it. Our dentists will work with you to customize your dentures to complement your facial shape, jaw contours, and skin and eye color.
Stable and Secure Implant-Supported Dentures
With implant-supported dentures, you get the best of both worlds; a beautiful, realistic-looking set of artificial teeth that restores function and appearance and dental implants to hold it securely in place.
By placing as few as four dental implants along your jawline and customizing your dentures with attachments that snap onto the implants, you have a secure tooth replacement as stable, if not more so, than your natural teeth were.
You’ll be able to smile confidently, chew all your favorite foods again and never ever have to worry that your dentures will fall out or shift unexpectedly!
