There are few different options out there when it comes to dentures. During your initial consultation, we’ll help you choose the best type of denture to meet your unique smile goals and needs.
For those who are suffering from tooth loss but still have some healthy teeth, a partial denture may be a great option for you. They have an acrylic or metal base and are designed to fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth in order to fill in gaps. Small, discreet clasps wrap around your natural tooth structure out of sight to hold your new replacement teeth firmly in place.
Full dentures are designed to restore an entire arch of teeth. This type of denture is held into place by the power of suction. Similar to partials, full dentures are made with a gum-colored acrylic base that holds natural-looking ceramic teeth.
For patients who are missing teeth but want a more sturdy, permanent alternative to traditional dentures, dental implant dentures are available. These dentures are held into place with titanium, screw-like implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. This allows for additional chewing power and prevents bone loss over time.
There are several reasons why you might want to choose dentures to replace your missing teeth. Here are just some of the many benefits:
