Dentures & Partials An Overview
For patients who are missing multiple teeth dentures are used to replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Due to advancements in restorative dentistry, dentures are designed to provide a more natural looking, stable solution for patients who have lost their natural teeth. Depending on the needs of the patient, your dentist may recommend removable dentures or dental implant dentures to help restore your missing teeth.
Types of Dentures:
- Removable Dentures: Removable dentures are removed daily and held into place using an adhesive product. This replacement option requires daily maintenance and does not address bone deterioration.
- Implant Secured Dentures: Implants secured dentures are fixed into place using strategically place dental implants. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents further jaw bone deterioration and encourages bone growth in the jaw.
