From partials to full dentures, the dentists at Schleicher-Read-Parker do it all!
Dentures are used to address the problems of patients who are missing one or more teeth. While most individuals are more familiar with full dentures that are used to replace an entire arch of teeth, patients missing one or more teeth can benefit from partial dentures. Partial dentures are similar to a retainer that has artificial teeth fabricated and attached. This denture is then snapped into the upper or lower mouth, allowing the new teeth to fit firmly in place where the natural teeth used to reside. This is an affordable alternative to bridges or dental implants.
Full dentures are used as a replacement for an entire set of teeth, either the upper arch or the lower arch, or both. They are created to fit firmly in place, though many patients prefer using dental adhesives to keep them from shifting during chewing or talking. Many patients also consider implant-supported dentures, which are dentures that are used in conjunction with several dental implants in order to "snap" the dentures into place and give them more strength and stability than those without.
Dentures are crafted at Schleicher-Read-Parker with only the highest quality materials, and can help anyone restore the beauty they once had in their smile. Due to disease, age, trauma, or other causes, some adults may want dentures to give them back their ability to chew, talk, and even smile without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed.
There are alternatives to partial and full dentures, such as implants, so it is important to consult with our Doctors to determine which solution is best for you and your budget. Call today to schedule a consultation appointment and examination, and find out if dentures may be the way to go to give yourself a beautiful smile once again!
