Dentures and Partials
Eating, chewing, smiling, talking, and feeling comfortable around other people. These are just a few of the daily activities that are impacted when you are living with multiple compromised or missing teeth. You should know that you don’t have to live this way!
If the time has come to consider a denture as a solution for your smile, you can rest assured that today’s dentures are nothing like those that your parents or grandparents wore.
Dr. Joel and Dr. Mark take great care in designing dentures for their patients with impeccable fit and natural aesthetics. We can also use dental implants to support your partial or full denture in for an even more stable and secure fit.
What Is a Partial Denture?
If you have multiple lost or compromised teeth, but you are still retaining many healthy teeth, a partial can fill in the gaps, give you back your beautiful smile, and help you eat with ease again.
Your partial denture will use metal or plastic clasps to anchor to healthy teeth and custom porcelain prosthetic teeth to fill the spaces in your smile. You can remove your partial easily at night while you sleep for cleaning.
What Is a Full Denture?
If it’s time to replace all of your teeth, a full denture can do the job. A traditional denture is removable and relies on fit and suction to keep it in place.
Choosing dental implants to support your denture means that you won’t have to endure learning to talk and eat with your new appliance. Since a few strategically placed implants will support your denture, there is never any movement or slippage.
Dental implants also provide the added benefit of protecting your jawbone from the deterioration that occurs when you wear a traditional full denture. Implants keep your bone stimulated so it remains strong and can support your denture for many years, and in some cases, a lifetime.
What’s Possible for Your Smile?
Tooth loss can make you feel hopeless, as it often results in losing even more teeth. The good news is there are excellent solutions for your smile, and our dentists have years of experience in helping patients reclaim their dental health with dentures.
The first step is to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Joel or Dr. Mark to learn more about your options. They will discuss your goals for your smile with you to determine which type of treatment will best fit into your lifestyle and budget, and help you reach those goals.
