Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Those missing multiple teeth may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness. Depending on the number of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures. During your consultation, we’ll assess all your options and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.
Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth. They clasp onto the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor.
When you no longer have any remaining teeth a full denture prosthesis is necessary to restore proper appearance and function. You need to smile and eat. We can construct traditional dentures that are supported by your bone and gingival tissue. We can build implant supported dentures. Or, we can construct implant supported dentures that are actually permanently screwed into place. We can discuss what option is best for you.
