These Aren’t Your Grandfather’s Dentures!
We know that dentures have gotten a bad rap over the years, and for good reason. But they don’t have to be slippery or painful. In fact, removable dentures are better now than in earlier eras of dentistry. Here is what they entail: a set of natural-looking replacement teeth held in a gum-colored mold. Sounds good, right? And you’ll have some good options when you trust our team to transform your life.
Full Vs. Partial
As you might have guessed: full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. They fit snugly over your gums, and they are held there by a combination of suction and a special adhesive.
Partial dentures can replace some of your teeth in a row. They are usually held by small clasps holding on to neighboring teeth. Either kind will be easy to clean, because you can take them out as needed.
Dental Implants And Dentures
Look, we can also get creative when it comes to your restoration. If you want a stronger hold, we offer fixed dentures that are held firmly in place with dental implants. This option provides a stronger, more solid hold than removable dentures, but here’s the only thing: because they use implants, not every patient can use them. But we can tell you more about what makes a good candidate during your consultation.
Dentures Are Within Reach
The good news is that dentures are not going to break the bank, in most cases. They will give you a practical and cost-effective solution for restoring your missing teeth. They will help you get back on track fast. If dentures are an option for you, we will discuss whether removable dentures or fixed would work best.
