Removable dentures still play an important role in replacing teeth for many patients. Dentures can be an affordable way of replacing teeth when compared with other alternatives such as implants and bridges. They can also be quite an efficient way of replacing multiple missing teeth. We make both acrylic (plastic) and metal-based dentures. Contact us to discuss the tooth replacement options that may work best for your mouth.
Partial dentures are an option for those who are missing one or more teeth but still have other healthy teeth. They attach to the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth. Even if you only have minimal remaining teeth, a partial denture may still work best since the remaining teeth serve as natural anchors and act to maintain the surrounding bone.
When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind that sits passively on the gum or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves more cost and complexity. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
