What are Dentures?
If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to replace your missing teeth, then full dentures are the best route for you to take. The appliances are comprised of a pink resin base that mimics the appearance of your gums, with tooth-colored porcelain teeth that are affixed to them. With your new custom-designed prosthetics, your upper and lower teeth can be replaced, and by carefully assessing the current condition of your mouth, we’ll craft the dentures to leave you with a perfect bite. Then, with the aid of dental adhesive and the natural suction created inside your mouth, the dentures will be securely held in place.
What are Partial Dentures?
If you’re only missing a few of your teeth, then you’ll need a set of partial dentures. Like their full counterparts, they consist of porcelain prosthetic teeth that are also mounted in a pink resin base. The difference, however, is that they are held in place with a thin metal framework that clasps to the surrounding teeth. While a partial denture is similar to a fixed bridge, it differs in that the latter can only be used to replace missing teeth in series. With partial dentures, you have greater flexibility to fill any gaps in your smile.
The Benefits of Receiving Partial or Full Dentures
Whenever there is prolonged tooth loss, there can eventually be bone degeneration. That’s because tooth roots trigger the jawbone to continue producing new bone cells. By having dentures placed, though, any bone loss can be slowed. In the case of partial denture placement, you can also prevent any shifting of the remaining teeth by receiving the new appliance. That means you won’t have to worry about any troublesome problems with occlusion (bite) and you’ll lessen your chances of developing a gum infection.
Another perk is that you’ll no longer have to worry about being ridiculed for showing a toothless grin. Instead, with your brand-new teeth, you’ll regain the confidence that has been missing for far too long.
