Partial or Complete Dentures

Patients missing multiple teeth may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness.

Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken.  More importantly, your diet can suffer.  Depending on the number of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures.  During your consultation, we’ll discuss all of your options so you can choose what is best for you.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing multiple teeth, but not all.  They latch onto the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth.  Even if you only have limited teeth in your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining teeth serve as natural anchors.

Complete Dentures

When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution.  You can choose the traditional kind that latches to the gum line or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants.  The latter option provides the best results, but involves surgery.  We can discuss the details of all options so you can make an informed decision.
