Dentures are a removable dental appliance designed to replace multiple missing teeth. When confronted with the challenge of missing teeth, dentures can prove to be the ideal solution, effectively restoring the functionality, aesthetics and oral health of your smile.
Our denture services include:
Dentures come in two primary forms: complete dentures and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are recommended when all the teeth in a full dental arch are missing. Depending on your specific dental needs, Dr. Shelly Mixson may advise the use of complete dentures for one or both arches. In some cases, to enhance stability, she may suggest the use of a denture adhesive.
On the other hand, partial dentures are the appropriate choice when multiple teeth are missing, yet some natural teeth remain. Typically, a partial denture incorporates a thin framework or clasps that securely attach to the remaining natural teeth, ensuring a stable fit.
While dentures are traditionally removable, they can also be anchored using dental implants to provide additional stability.
The decision to opt for complete or partial dentures is made after a comprehensive assessment by our skilled dentist. Dentures not only facilitate improved speech and eating abilities but also restore your natural facial volume, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of your smile. Rest assured, your dentures will be custom-crafted to ensure a comfortable, secure and aesthetically pleasing fit.
