Dentures and Partials
When you’re faced with the loss of multiple teeth, your situation can begin to feel hopeless. Your confidence and nutrition suffer, not to mention your oral health.
Dr. Kurtis and Dr. Joanne want you to know there is hope, and there are solutions that can help you reclaim your smile, confidence and oral health again.
A denture is a removable appliance that is designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.
Today’s dentures are customized to fit your facial structure and skin tone so they look natural and appealing as they immediately restore your smile. They rely on a snug fit, suction, and sometimes a dental adhesive to stay in place. There’s often a learning curve as patients get used to talking and chewing with their new teeth; however, most patients appreciate how quickly their smile and confidence are restored.
For patients missing multiple teeth yet still retaining a large number of healthy teeth, a partial denture might be the solution.
A partial is also removable and designed to snap into place using metal clasps as anchors to your healthy teeth. It utilizes customized prosthetic teeth to fill in the open spaces, similar to a puzzle piece.
We customize your prosthetic teeth to complement your smile so no one will ever know you were missing teeth.
Dental implants can be used to support dental prosthetics such as a bridge, denture, or partial denture, offering patients a more secure fit than ever before. Dr. Kurtis will strategically place a few implants into your bone using computer guidance for precision. Then he’ll design your appliance to “snap” into the dental implants. The implants ensure that there is no movement or slippage when you talk or eat, which greatly improves the experience for denture wearers.
The other benefit of using dental implants to support your appliance is that they help protect the structure of your bone. The implant help keeps your bone healthy and stimulated, which protects from deterioration. Traditional dentures may accelerate bone loss due to the added pressure of supporting a denture.
