Dentures and partials are some of the most effective prosthetic options for restoring your smile. The number of teeth you're missing will help determine whether you need dental implants, partials, or full dentures.
Dentures are removable dental devices made to mimic the appearance of natural teeth to replace a full row of missing teeth. Partial dentures are similar, however, they are used when only some of the teeth are missing but several natural teeth remain.
While we do provide implant-supported (permanent) dentures, we also offer traditional denture options. These must be removed at night, properly cleaned, and are ideal for those who cannot or don't want to undergo an invasive procedure.
Modern dentures are hyper-realistic, and our patients couldn’t be happier with their results. The primary benefit of dentures is that they fill in your smile. While this may be enough of a reason for many, patients can also enjoy other functional benefits.
Two primary jobs our teeth perform are biting and chewing, and without them, our digestive systems would be working overtime. Believe it or not, missing several teeth can lead to larger chunks of food entering your stomach, making it difficult to digest.
Another benefit of dentures is that they help prevent further cosmetic complications. Just one missing tooth can cause surrounding teeth to shift, rotate, or become misaligned. Not only can this affect your smile, but it can also lead to bacterial growth and further tooth loss if left untreated.
To avoid the need for partials or dentures, the best thing to do is brush and floss daily and visit your dentist regularly. This is just a true when it comes to having dental prosthetics - you should care for your dentures as well as you would your natural teeth.
