If you have lost multiple teeth, Dr. Olivia Park may recommend a denture to replace them and restore your smile. Dentures consist of prosthetic teeth set into a plastic base, and they are designed to fit your mouth comfortably to restore your smile. Dentures also work to restore your natural facial volume and help you regain your ability to eat and speak properly. There are several types of dentures available:
  • Complete dentures — this type of denture is used to replace all the teeth in a full dental arch. Depending on your needs, a complete denture may replace the upper arch, lower arch or both dental arches.
  • Partial dentures — partials are recommended when you have lost multiple teeth but have some natural teeth remaining. They include a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.
  • Implant-supported dentures — this type of denture consists of a full or partial denture anchored to dental implants. A few implant posts are strategically placed in the mouth and then the denture is anchored atop them to complete your treatment and give you a highly stable final result.
If you are receiving dentures, plan on several visits to Adept Dental Shafter to complete your appliance and help ensure it is properly fitted.
