The loss of teeth, regardless of the cause, can be a challenging experience, impacting both functional abilities like chewing and speaking, as well as one’s self-confidence. However, advancements in dental technology have provided us with robust and aesthetically pleasing solutions to address this concern. 

Dentures, both full and partial, have become the go-to for many, promising not just restored functionality but also a rejuvenated smile. Whether you’re missing a few or all of your teeth, there’s a denture solution tailored to meet your specific needs, ensuring that every laugh, bite, and word is delivered with confidence and comfort.

Full Dentures

If you are missing most of your teeth, a full denture set may be your best option, other than dental implants. You might have lost your teeth due to an accident, severe periodontitis, tooth decay, or other dental trauma. Dentures are an excellent option for restoring functionality and restoring your confident smile.

Full arch dentures are recommended for those who have lost most or all of their teeth or are at risk of losing them. The best way to determine whether full arch dentures are the right option for you is to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists. They will assess your mouth and offer honest advice, opinions and guidance while restoring your beautiful smile.

The dentist will remove any unhealthy and damaged teeth. After your mouth has healed, impressions and a 3D scan will be performed, ensuring the lab will create a perfect and comfortable fit for your mouth.

Overdentures, sometimes called implant-supported dentures, are a more stable, modern version of regular dentures. While conventional dentures rest solely on the gum tissue and the underlying jawbone, overdentures remain anchored by dental implants.

Partial Dentures

If you are missing just a few teeth, partial dentures are a cost-effective and non-invasive procedure that can help you reclaim your smile. Various types of partial dentures exist, which meet the varying needs of each patient. Partial dentures attach to adjacent teeth using a metal or acrylic clip, which holds the false teeth in place and fills the gaps of missing teeth. 

Like full dentures, partial dentures require an impression or 3D scan of your mouth for the dentist to create an accurate representation to send to the lab. They will then create a custom and comfortable fit for your mouth. Partial dentures are often only a short-term solution to restore your smile; they usually serve as a placeholder for a permanent replacement, such as a bridge or dental implant.

How do I care for my dentures?

While dentures provide an excellent solution for missing teeth, it’s essential to care for them properly to ensure longevity and maintain oral health. This includes daily cleaning to remove food particles and prevent staining, ensuring they are kept moist when not worn to maintain their shape. Regular check-ups with the dentist to ensure an optimal fit and health of the surrounding oral tissues.

Moreover, just like natural teeth, dentures can break. In such cases, rather than attempting repairs at home, it’s advisable to consult with a dental professional immediately. They can provide guidance on whether the denture can be repaired or if a replacement is necessary.
