At Smiles of Midtown, we offer dentures as a convenient solution to tooth loss. A denture is a removable prosthetic appliance that replaces missing natural teeth and surrounding tissues. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and prevent other teeth from changing position.
Dentures can help restore your smile if you’re missing some or all of your teeth. There are two main kinds of dentures – complete dentures, which replace all of the teeth in an arch, and partial dentures, which replace some missing teeth but not all.
The Advantages of Dentures
Wearing dentures can help you feel confident when you speak or eat. This can boost your self-esteem and allow you to enjoy life more fully. Missing teeth can make it challenging to communicate clearly and effectively. With dentures, you can regain your ability to speak with those around you more clearly.
Another advantage of dentures is that they can help you maintain the shape of your face. Missing teeth can gradually make your face appear sunken, making you look older and less healthy than you are. Your face will regain its natural shape once your teeth have been replaced with dentures.
Another advantage of wearing dentures is that they are easy to maintain and clean. To clean your dentures, simply remove and rinse them quickly when you’re done eating and keep them in water or denture solution overnight.
Partials are a type of prosthetic that replaces multiple missing teeth. They are similar to complete dentures but only replace a series of missing as opposed to an entire arch. These prosthetics have clasps that attach to the surrounding natural teeth to help secure them in place.
Just like we do for complete dentures, we’ll create your partials based on impressions of your teeth to ensure a precise fit. In addition, we may recommend dental implants to secure partials in place. This is especially beneficial for patients whose remaining teeth are damaged and prone to further decay.
The Benefits of Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are a great option to replace missing teeth. They can improve your speech, chewing ability, and the appearance of your smile. They also help to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting. A partial denture is removable, meaning you clean it daily for improved oral health.
