Full & Partial Dentures
Do missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures make it difficult to smile with confidence? Do you resist the idea of dentures because you think they’ll look fake and detract from your appearance?
We’re pleased to tell you that state-of-the-art dentures created at Dental Health Partners are customized to look completely natural and feel great.
The Problem with Missing Teeth
When you have missing teeth, the big gaps in your smile are not your only problem. Aside from the impact on your appearance, there are other situations that will eventually result from the loss of teeth. For example:
- Movement of adjacent teeth
- Difficulty speaking properly
- Problems with chewing certain types of foods
- Change in facial contours and appearance
Modern Dentures Look Beautifully Natural
There are two types of dentures – full and partial. Both are removable dental appliances that take the place of missing teeth. We use partials when just a few teeth are missing and complete dentures when you’re missing all your teeth.
The biggest concern for most patients is the fit and comfort of their new dentures. However, advances in technology and materials have completely changed the way dentures look and feel. You don’t have to worry about dentures that irritate sensitive tissue or dig into your gums.
Our dentures are carefully crafted at a special lab by highly experienced technicians. The denture consists of a base of dental resin that is shaded to closely match your natural gum tissue. Each tooth is placed separately in the base, allowing for variations that occur with natural teeth. State-of-the-art technology and materials help us create dentures that look, fit, and feel as close to natural teeth as possible.
One of the most common concerns with dentures is the movement of the denture while speaking, eating, or even laughing. Worries about sliding dentures can really have an impact on your lifestyle!
If you would like added stability for your dentures, we recommend dental implants. Dr. Cody has the necessary skill and training to handle all phases of the implant process from start to finish. The implants will be placed at strategic locations in your jaw, and your new denture will be designed to snap securely onto the implant. You’ll never have to worry about moving dentures or embarrassing slips.
