Dentures and Partials
Are you living with multiple teeth that are compromised, failing, or already lost? Do you have trouble eating and chewing your food without difficulty or discomfort? Do you feel embarrassed about smiling, or talking with other people due to the state of your smile? It may be time to consider dentures.
When you hear the word dentures, most people think of the appliances their parents or grandparents wore. They may have been noticeable or uncomfortable for your loved one to wear. You should know that today’s dentures have drastically improved over those worn by your grandparents in the past.
Modern design considers not only the fit of your denture but how it can blend most naturally with your skin tone and face. Today’s dentures look natural and appealing, and they fit better than ever before!
A full denture is a removable appliance that replaces a full arch of missing teeth. It’s typically made of acrylic, designed to fit securely over your gums, and crafted to give you a beautiful smile. This appliance relies on suction to stay in place, so an impeccable and secure fit is the key to avoiding movement or slippage when you’re talking or eating.
Full dentures restore your function, smile, and confidence as soon as they’re placed.
If you are missing multiple teeth, but you still have healthy teeth left, your Northfield dentist may recommend a partial denture for you. A partial is also a removable appliance; however, it uses clasps made of metal to anchor to healthy teeth in your mouth and provides a secure fit. A partial uses prosthetic teeth to fill in the open spaces, so you’re smile is complete and fully functional again.
Partial dentures give you back the ability to eat and smile with ease.
Implant Supported Dentures
Many patients who need dentures choose implant-supported dentures because they provide a secure fit that eliminates slippage when you eat or talk. Our dentists carefully place a few dental implants that your denture is designed to snap into, which provides the stability you can rely on.
An additional benefit is that dental implants also keep your jawbone stimulated, so it regenerates instead of deteriorating over time, which provides better longevity for your denture. Since we provide comprehensive implant dentistry at Nordonia Dental Group, our dentists can guide you through the process of getting implant supported dentures here at our Northfield dental office.
Implant-supported dentures restore your smile, while also protecting your dental health.
