You have several different options when it comes to dentures. Depending on your unique needs, we will propose one of the following types:
When a dental bridge isn’t enough to restore your smile to the fullest, a partial denture can effectively restore teeth on different sides of your mouth. Partial dentures not only prevent neighboring teeth from shifting around, but they look perfectly natural. They are customized to fit in your mouth precisely, so the restoration should remain stable and blend in with the rest of your smile.
Partial dentures rely on the neighboring teeth to stay in place, while a full denture remains secure thanks to the shape of your mouth and the natural suction of the gums. This type of denture can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. It is made from a gum-colored base and enamel-colored replacement teeth.
For a more stable denture that lasts longer than traditional methods, dental implant dentures may be an excellent solution. After a series of screw-like dental implants are placed throughout the jawbone, the customized restoration will be attached. The additional stability allows patients to regain up to 70% of natural chewing power. Implant dentures are also designed to last for decades, so you won’t need to worry about routine repairs and replacements.
There are all sorts of benefits of replacing your teeth with dentures. Here are some of the most prominent advantages:
