Dentures are artificial teeth that have been custom designed to replace any missing teeth in your mouth. They’re made to match the look, feel and color of your natural teeth and are then attached to a tailor-made plastic or metal plate that fits comfortably inside your mouth.
What are the benefits of dentures and partial dentures?
Dentures are an easy, minimally invasive solution for missing teeth. Here are just some of their many benefits:
If you don’t like the idea of permanent dental implants and crowns dentures are a viable, removable option you can use to restore your smile.
- Lightweight and natural
Today’s dentures far surpass those your grandparents wore. They’re made from high-quality, lightweight materials that will give your mouth a natural appearance.
Both full and partial dentures help maintain the shape of your face by supporting facial features and prevent sagging cheeks often associated with missing teeth.
Dentures are a more cost-effective option as compared to other tooth replacement methods.
Replacing your teeth with dentures will renew your smile and boost your self-confidence.
Are traditional or partial dentures right for me?
The skilled team of specialists at Dr. Rex Baumgatner is ready to help you make the best decision for your unique needs. Learn more about traditional and partial dentures:
- Traditional complete dentures
Complete dentures replace all of a patient’s upper and/or lower teeth. They sit on top of the gums, as opposed to dental bridges, which are anchored to existing teeth.
- Partial dentures
Partial dentures are used when only some of a person’s natural teeth are missing. There is a pink-colored base that is attached to a metal piece. These two pieces hold the denture in the mouth. Partial dentures are convenient and removable, which means you can take them out whenever you need to. They also help to prevent your other teeth from shifting.
