Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and can age your appearance. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Those missing multiple teeth may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures. During your consultation, we will assess all your options and you can choose which option best suits your needs.
Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing some or only a few teeth. They latch onto the remaining adjacent teeth. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor.
When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind are retained by suction and rest on gums or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
