If you are looking for a convenient and cost-effective way to replace missing teeth, traditional dentures may be the answer for you. Dentures can replace a full arch of missing teeth. Partial dentures are used when many teeth are missing but some healthy teeth remain. Both are removable and taken out for oral hygiene purposes. Full and partial dentures afford you the opportunity to maintain your oral health and keep a beautiful smile.
Traditional dentures are less costly than implant supported dentures, and partial dentures are a good substitute when a dental bridge is not advisable and implants are too expensive. Traditional removable dentures have long been the standard for replacing missing teeth. At Rivers + West Family Dentistry, we create dentures that look good and function well. Restore your smile beautifully and naturally with traditional dentures.
Missing teeth can come in all types of configurations. You may have a few teeth missing, all your molars on one side or a tooth here and there. Partial dentures are a good way to replace missing teeth without the expense of implants or dental bridges.
A partial is also a good choice when a dental bridge or implant is not advisable. This can happen when all the back teeth are missing and the bone will not support an implant, and there is no abutment tooth to hold a dental bridge. The partial clamps onto existing teeth for stability and still provides a natural look. Partial dentures are created to look good and feel comfortable while wearing them.
What to Expect with Dentures
Removable dentures are made to fit snug on the ridge. Ideally, you should not have to use adhesives to keep them in place to begin with. You may experience some discomfort from time to time as you get used to wearing them. Your new dentures may develop sore spots now and then and will need to be adjusted. Your dentist will smooth down spots that may cause irritation as you break them in.
