Full Or Partial Dentures Could Be The Smile Solution You’re Looking For!
There are a lot of situations that can result in tooth loss. However, you still need teeth to continue eating, talking, and enjoying life normally. That’s where full and partial dentures can help.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. If you’re missing all of your teeth, you’ll have full dentures. If some of your natural teeth remain, you’ll only need partial dentures.
For full dentures, which can be either top, bottom, or both, all of your natural teeth will be removed. Once your gums heal, the dentures will be molded and fit to be snug and natural in your mouth.
Denture technology has improved dramatically over time, even in just the last few years. Today’s dentures are much more natural and comfortable than anything you remember your parents wearing.
If you have a number of teeth in good shape, you might be able to get partial dentures instead. This involves a plate with one or more prosthetic teeth that look and feel natural. The base is the same as full dentures, and the device will sit comfortably over and around your remaining teeth.
For either full or partial dentures, you’ll have an impression made of your mouth and remaining teeth. These are sent to the lab so that your custom dentures can be created. You may have several follow-up appointments to fine-tune the fit so that your dentures are as comfortable as possible.
Both full and partial dentures need to be removed at night. You can soak them in denture cleaner so that they will be ready for use in the morning.
