Full and Partial Dentures

full and partial denturesIf you are missing one or more teeth, you probably feel self-conscious about your smile. In addition, your ability to chew properly and speak clearly may be impacted.

If you have thought about partial or full dentures, you might imagine the ill-fitting dentures your grandparents wore. With modern dentistry and the dentures of today, you will be able to smile confidently, speak naturally, and eat your favorite foods. Full dentures can be comfortable and still look very natural. Partial dentures can be a great way to complete your smile.

Talk to Dr. Paul Perez and Dr. Elizabeth Crapanzano at Avenue Family Dentistry about how today’s modern dentures can give you back the quality of life you have been missing.

Versatile Custom Dentures

Dentures are a removable tooth prosthetic. Dentures have been around for many years, and they continue to be popular because they are an affordable way to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or your complete smile.

Avenue Family Dentistry offers dentures as a dependable, trusted option because of the many benefits they offer patients. Today’s dentures not only provide patients with a beautiful, natural-looking smile, but they will restore your ability to chew properly and help protect the health of the teeth surrounding or opposing those that are missing. You will also enjoy the increased self-confidence of a smile that does not have gaps.

Restore Full Arches with Traditional Removable Dentures

full and partial denturesFor patients missing all of their teeth, full dentures can offer esthetic solutions and restore your facial appearance. For increased stability, we can anchor your dentures with dental implants that are placed into the jawbone. Advancements in dental technology have made dentures much more comfortable and stable than they have been in the past, enabling you to feel confident with your brand new smile. When all of your upper or lower teeth need to be replaced, full dentures offer a convenient, affordable solution for many people.

Before getting full dentures, teeth must be extracted and your gums need to heal for about 12 weeks before a permanent set of dentures can be placed. In most cases, a temporary set of dentures can be worn during that time so you don’t have to face each day without your smile.

Replace Single and Multiple Missing Teeth with Partial Dentures

Dentures can be used to replace just one tooth or several teeth. Called partial dentures, these appliances are custom designed to look just like your existing natural teeth. Partials are held in place by clips that secure around your remaining healthy teeth.

Do You Have Ill-Fitting Dentures?

Having comfortable dentures that stay put is important to maintaining your appearance and the nutrition you need to stay healthy. Because tooth loss leads to bone loss, your dentures may need to be replaced on occasion to ensure a comfortable fit. We can evaluate your current denture and determine if a reline, repair, or new denture will benefit you.
