Revitalize Your Smile and Restore Functionality with Modern Dentures

Missing teeth can cause a variety of dental concerns, whether aesthetic or functionally. Aesthetically, missing teeth can keep you from showing off your smile, or from feeling confident in your overall looks and oral health. However, missing teeth can also cause severe functional issues. These issues can include decreased ability to bite and chew, pressure and pain from uneven force, as well as tooth and bone deterioration due to excessive strain put on remaining natural teeth. Whether you are putting off implants due to fear of commitment, possibility of pain, or general busyness, now is the time to consider dentures or partials as a way to replace missing teeth. Generally, when people think of dentures, they think of loose fitting and gappy fake teeth. However, dentures have come a long way, and our practice utilizes innovative techniques and technology to ensure your full or partial dentures blend in seamlessly.

What is the difference between full and partial dentures?

Full and partial dentures are very similar but function slightly differently to replace teeth. Partial removable dentures are utilized for sections of missing teeth, but not the entire mouth. Generally, small metal arms are fabricated to hold these removable dentures in place, but are hidden so that they are not visible. Full removable dentures are utilized when no existing natural teeth remain in the mouth. Similar to partials, these color-matched acrylic teeth are fabricated with superior suction to the mouth and bone structure, allowing them to look like natural teeth with a superior fit. Both full and partial dentures can be removed easily for cleaning, and are custom fit to the shape of your mouth and existing teeth so that they blend in color-wise, as well as create even pressure on the jaw, decreasing pain, sores, or possibility of gapping and wiggling.
