Dentures & Partials An Overview
The need for dentures can be a very difficult time for patients especially those who are still young and very active. There is a considerable amount of emotional and physical difficulty that comes with losing your teeth. Our staff is extremely sensitive to these difficulties and will help you work through your options and the process to make the best decision to fit your budget and lifestyle.
Dentures aren’t what they used to be. Today’s cosmetic dentures look and feel like natural teeth. They are made of fine, durable dental ceramics that allow you to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
Most people won’t even realize that you are wearing dentures, allowing you to regain confidence in social situations. Full dentures replace all of the upper or lower teeth. Partial dentures replace several missing teeth, to fill a gap or space in a row of teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
For patients who are concerned with the restrictions that dentures might place upon their lifestyle, implant supported dentures are an excellent option. Though a considerable investment, implant supported dentures are a permanent, non-removable solution for replacing an entire set or span of missing teeth.
Implant supported dentures utilize as few as two to four dental implants to secure a denture in place. With implant supported dentures, there is no risk of slippage and there is less of a concern of bone deterioration. In some cases, an existing denture can be converted into an implant supported denture.
