Are you looking for a simple, comfortable, and natural-looking way to replace your missing teeth? Full or partial dentures may be the ideal solution for you! Many people think dentures are clunky or that they cause sores in the mouth, but the truth is that when dentures fit well, they can have a large, positive impact on the wearer’s oral health and confidence level.
Traditional complete dentures replace an entire arch of teeth — either all of the top teeth or all of the bottom teeth. They consist of a gum-colored base and a set of esthetic artificial teeth. Full dentures may stay in the mouth via natural suction or with the help of a special denture adhesive.
Partial dentures replace just a few teeth. With a single prosthesis, you can fill in multiple gaps throughout an arch, even if those teeth are not adjacent to one another. Partials might need the help of metal attachments in order to stay securely in the mouth.
Whether you need full or partial tooth replacement, you may want to ask your dentist if you are a candidate for implant-retained dentures. As their name implies, these prostheses are anchored in the mouth via dental implants. They provide the strongest, most natural-looking way to restore your smile.
Full and partial dentures offer a number of significant benefits:
If you would like to replace your missing teeth with full or partial dentures, your journey to a restored smile begins with a consultation with one of our talented doctors. After we examine your mouth and discuss your oral health, we’ll recommend the tooth replacement option that is best for you.
If traditional full or partial dentures are a fit for your circumstances, we’ll take some impressions of your mouth and use them to design your new teeth. That information will go to a laboratory, which will create your new prosthesis. The entire process may take several weeks.
After we send you home with your new dentures, it may take you a while to get used to them. If you have any problems during this adjustment period, please feel free to contact us and ask for advice on how to get the most out of your restored smile.
If you choose implant-retained dentures, we’ll work with a local specialist to arrange your implant placement surgery. Once you’ve healed from that surgery, we’ll design and install your gorgeous new teeth. This process may take several months to a year.
