Patients seeking an affordable solution that can be removed will be best suited for treatment with dentures.
Many patients are unsure of how they can achieve the smile of their dreams with dentures. When men and women think of dentures, they often think of the ill-fitting restorations that their grandparents used to have. They may be afraid of unnatural-looking false teeth. However, thanks to advances in dentistry, patients introduced to dentures are often surprised at how well they fit, how natural they look, and how nicely they function. Dentures include two varieties – partial dentures and full dentures.
Partial dentures are suited for patients who are missing a single tooth or several teeth within the dental arch. The restoration is made of metal and acrylic framework that snaps into place as false teeth slide into the spaces where teeth are missing. The restoration is easy to remove and care for, and can be adjusted as needed if changes occur within the smile. On the other hand, patients who are missing all their teeth within the dental arch, either the top or bottom, are candidates for full dentures. Full dentures include false teeth and false gum tissue, and are used on the upper, lower, or both dental arches. These restorations are custom-made for patients to provide restored chewing, speaking, and biting efficiency, which allows them to eat their favorite foods and enjoy social conversations. Full dentures are often held in place with natural suction, dental adhesives, or even implants for optimum stability. Patients can work with their dentist to determine the solution best for their specific needs.
Many patients are excited to improve and achieve a new smile with dentures. Some patients have struggled with imperfect teeth for many years before they decide to move forward with cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions. Others have a recent incident that has required them to consider tooth replacement options. We want our patients to know that we offer solutions that ensure a natural appearance as well as improved function. Without a natural-looking restoration, many patients do not want to have their smile addressed with the use of certain treatments. They want a restoration that looks like their natural teeth, so it does not appear as though they have had dental work done. We respect this and provide aesthetically-pleasing solutions in our high-quality dentures.
Patients who are missing one or more teeth are appropriate candidates for the placement of dentures. We want our patients to know that we can walk them through the process step by step so there are no surprises. We talk with patients during their initial consultation appointment and we can review the options readily available to them. Some patients may not choose to move forward with dentures, but instead consider the benefits of alternatives such as dental bridges or dental implants.
