Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Those missing multiple teeth in a row may want to consider dentures for esthetics, function and overall wellness. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, we may suggest either a partial or complete denture. During your consultation, we’ll assess all your options and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.
What are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth in an arch. The partial anchors to the surrounding teeth. Even if you only have one tooth missing a partial denture may still work best, depending on your dental needs.
What are Complete Dentures?
When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, or you need the remaining teeth in your arch removed, a complete denture is a great option. If you have enough ridge support a traditional or immediate complete denture may be an option. For those who have bone loss and would struggle with a complete denture, an overdenture can be made using implants to anchor the denture in place. Implants have the best hold, but involve surgery. Our dentist can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
