If you’ve lost a large number of your natural teeth, then you may need more than a bridge to address the issue. But don’t worry! We can still help you enjoy a full and functional smile with our dentures. We have different options available to ensure you enjoy a smile you can feel proud to show the world.
If you’ve lost all of your teeth on one or both arches, then you may need a full prosthetic. The denture consists of a complete row of custom-made teeth. The teeth will be created using porcelain or zirconia, due to the material’s’ strength and lifelike appearance. The base will be crafted using acrylic, allowing it to mimic the appearance of your gum tissue. The prosthetic is held in place using natural suction and can be removed for cleaning.
A partial helps people that have lost several teeth, but don’t need require a full prosthetic. The denture can address teeth that are missing, even if they are spread out across the arch. Again, there will be an acrylic base that mimics gum tissue, as well as custom-made teeth. There will also be metal clasps, which attach the natural teeth and anchor the prosthetic firmly in place.
While a full requires natural suction and a partial needs metal claps, an implant-supported denture is held in place with multiple dental implants. We can use them to support a more secure full or partial or even a dental bridge. Some patients prefer this option, as it is not removable and therefore less likely for any slippage to occur during meals or speech. Since dental implants bond with the jawbone and act as new tooth roots, the prosthetic can potentially last much longer as well. If you have any questions about our tooth replacement options, then please contact our office today. Let 2018 be the year you obtain a full and beautiful smile once again.
