Dentures and Partials
As we age, tooth loss is a common side effect, often caused by the progression of periodontal disease. And although aesthetics may be the first thing people notice about tooth loss, having fewer adult teeth also results in significant impairments for daily activities, like speaking, chewing, and eating. Luckily, advancements in tooth replacement treatments, like dentures, partials, and implant procedures, can help patients with missing teeth smile with the confidence they deserve.
Dentures offer patients a variety of incredible benefits and improvements to quality of life. Providing you with the ability to eat, speak, and chew confidently, dentures are a cost-effective solution for those with missing teeth. Plus, with modern technological advances, dentures appear more natural than ever before, allowing you to gain all of the benefits of new teeth, discreetly and aesthetically.
If you believe you may be a good candidate for a full set of dentures, call us today to schedule an appointment with our dentists. Dr. Bowen and Dr. Gehlert will expertly evaluate your oral health, condition, and mouth, providing you with a customizable treatment solution that meets your smile goals and prioritizes your oral health. While you can pair dentures and dental implants for missing teeth, dentures alone are a suitable and more affordable option for many patients.
If you are a good candidate for a full-mouth denture treatment, your dentist will extract any remaining teeth before making impressions of your mouth. Then your perfectly-fitted, full-denture set will be comfortable and natural looking, allowing you to smile, speak, and eat confidently with a new set of beautiful, functional teeth.
For some patients, partial dentures may be the most suitable tooth replacement option. These removable dentures are designed for those who are missing some teeth. By wearing a partial appliance, you can fill in any gaps in your smile while your natural teeth hold it in place. In addition to the aesthetic function of partial dentures, this appliance also helps patients properly chew and speak clearly.
To receive your partial dentures, our dentists will thoroughly examine the health of your teeth, take impressions, and fit you for your smile-perfecting partial denture appliance.
