Patients who need to replace an entire arch of teeth or several teeth in a row can benefit from custom-made dentures. Missing teeth should not impact your ability to engage in normal daily activities. Dentures are an easy way to replace the missing teeth while maintaining the function and look of your smile.
Full dentures are designed to replace the teeth in the upper and lower arches of your mouth. These dentures look natural and help you to bite, chew, and more. These are a good option for patients who are missing an entire row of teeth and are unable to perform the basic functions of the mouth.
If instead of a whole row, you are just missing a few teeth here and there, a partial denture will be a more suitable option for you. These dentures are designed using an acrylic base connected to a metal framework with dental clasps that attach to your adjacent teeth for stability.
Implant-supported dentures use implants for stability, so the denture is secured without the use of adhesive or dental clasps. A dental implant is a post made of surgical-grade titanium that is surgically placed into the jaw. Since dental implants mimic the natural roots of teeth, they stimulate bone growth and prevent jawbone degeneration.
