What are Dentures & Partials?
A full denture is a great way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth within the mouth. A partial denture can be snapped onto your surrounding teeth and will only replace the areas of teeth that you’re missing. Dentures of all kinds and sizes are wonderful prosthetic appliances that can restore fullness, beauty and functionality to your smile. They can last for up to seven years with the proper care.
Why are Dentures & Partials needed?
The reason a denture or partial is needed is because you may be missing a great deal of or all of your teeth. The denture is custom-fitted to your mouth so that it is as comfortable as possible. These dentures help to make life easier because you’re able to talk, eat and chew normally. Your face will look less sunken-in thanks to the power of prosthetic appliances.
Who is a candidate for Dentures & Partials?
We can examine your teeth and gums to determine if you might need a denture. If you need a denture, it’s a good idea for you to have one placed so that you are able to retain your quality of life. If your denture needs to be replaced, this can be done easily in our office as needed. Dentures need to be removed each night to keep them clean and free of bacteria and odors.
What happens during the procedure for Dentures & Partials?
The procedure begins with detailed impressions taken of the teeth and gums. These impressions are used to make the actual appliance. You’ll then come in for a denture fitting. You may need several adjustments and fittings to get the fit of the denture just right. Your new denture is easy to remove and replace as needed. You can expect the appliance to last for about seven years or longer depending on the amount of wear it’s received.
