A traditional denture is removable and can be an attractive option for patients who have not experienced extensive bone loss. Resting on top of the gums, a traditional denture is secured with paste or adhesive. This denture does run the risk of slipping or moving, so this option may not be the ideal solution for some patients.
Partial dentures are placed when you still have some natural teeth in an arch. We create a custom denture to replace only the missing teeth, and the appliance is attached to existing teeth for support. We can show you how these work and discuss the benefits they provide during your consultation.
You can extend the life of a denture with proper cleaning, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits. We do offer denture solutions for patients who have experienced bone loss and can determine the type of tooth replacement option appropriate for you during your consultation.
