What are dentures and partials?

Dentures and partials are artificial teeth that replace missing or extracted permanent teeth. You could be a candidate for full dentures that replace all of your natural teeth or partial dentures that replace just some permanent teeth. The Family Dental Group team tailors each denture treatment to your personal needs to achieve a perfect, natural-looking smile.

What types of dentures and partials are there?

The Family Dental Group offers various forms of dentures, including:

Removable dentures and partials

Traditional dentures and partials are often removable, meaning you can take them out of your mouth when you sleep or clean them. Keep the dentures and partials clean, and wear them exactly as your dentist directs. They’ll look, function, and feel like your natural teeth.

Implant-supported dentures and partials

Implant-supported dentures and partials are fixed in place and not removable unless by your dentist. Metal posts called dental implants anchor the dentures to support them and ensure they stay secure. Like removable dentures and partials, implant-supported dentures look very natural.

What are the advantages of dentures and partials?

If you’re missing some of your teeth or need a dental extraction, dentures and partials offer several benefits, including:

  • No more tooth gaps
  • Beautiful smile
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Self-confidence
  • Improved quality of life

The Family Dental Group team tailors each restorative dental treatment to your personal needs to enhance and perfect your smile.

Are dentures and partials right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for full or partial dentures, your dentist examines your gums and teeth, takes dental X-rays, reviews your oral health history, and discusses your treatment preferences and desired results. They then provide treatment recommendations.

If you lack sufficient jawbone to support dental implants, the Family Dental Group offers bone grafting procedures that increase jawbone strength and volume.

What should I expect when receiving dentures and partials?

When receiving dentures and partials, your dentist will first numb the treatment area and insert the dental implants into your jawbone. They digitally scan your mouth to develop custom-fitted dentures. When the new teeth are ready, your dentist ensures that they fit correctly and comfortably. They discuss how to care for your dentures and partials to ensure long-lasting results.
