Losing all or most of your teeth does not need to mean the end of your smile. It is an opportunity for you to gain a new one that may look better than your natural teeth did for many years. Dentures are an affordable restorative dentistry option to restore your smile and give you back a functional set of teeth. At Envision Dental, we offer advanced options in complete and partial dentures to help our patients enjoy having a full, gorgeous smile again.
Most complete dentures are made from plastic and a combination of ceramics or porcelain. The upper set has plastic that covers the roof of your mouth and fits over your gums, while the lower set is U-shaped and sits on the lower gums. Traditional dentures use suction and adhesive to be held in place; these are removable and are taken out, usually at night, to be cleaned. Secured or retained dentures use dental implants to hold them in place. These function more like natural teeth and do not require adhesives.
When only some of the teeth are missing, partial dentures can be an option to replace missing teeth with a removable prosthetic. Partial dentures use metal fittings that grip existing teeth to hold the appliance in place. Dental implants and dental bridges can offer a fixed solution for replacing multiple missing teeth, but not everyone is a good candidate. Partial dentures are an affordable option to restore a complete smile.
Missing teeth can impact your speech, chewing and appearance. Dentures are a great way to give you back a beautiful smile and restore your oral function. There are multiple options in dentures, from the materials used, to how they are kept in place. At Envision Dental, we offer a wide selection of dentures for our patients, from affordable traditional dentures to long-lasting implant-retained dentures.
