Dentures & Partials An Overview
Many activities become more challenging when your teeth are failing, or you are living with a denture that doesn’t fit properly. From smiling to eating the healthy foods you would normally enjoy, your confidence and nutrition become compromised. Your speech may be affected, and in some cases, your condition may cause you to lose hope.
Your team at Tryon Family Dentistry offers great solutions for patients who struggle with multiple missing teeth or an ill-fitting denture. We can help restore those missing teeth, your smile, and your confidence.
We offer denture care services in our Raleigh, Cary, and Zebulon dentist offices. Our Wake County dentists are experienced in the placement of complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures can replace a full row of lost teeth. Removable partial dentures can replace a partial row of lost teeth, or just a few missing teeth.
Dentures & Partials What to Expect
We Provide Full Dentures and Partial Dentures
Typically made of acrylic, full dentures are an appliance used to restore a full arch of missing teeth. Today’s modern dentures are thoughtfully designed with your skin tone and facial structure in mind. We will provide you with the best fitting dentures and esthetics possible.
If you are missing more than just one tooth, yet you still have quite a few healthy and viable teeth, a partial denture may be a good solution for you. Partial dentures are also removable oral appliances. They use metal clasps to anchor to your remaining teeth. Your oral appliance has prosthetic teeth attached to it, that are fully customized to match your existing teeth for a natural-looking smile.
Solutions for Ill-fitting Dentures
Dr. Leo and Dr. Alex often recommend dental implants to help support dentures and partials. A few strategically placed implants can provide permanent support for a denture or partial. Implant-supported dentures offer a much more secure fit so there is no movement or slippage when you talk or eat while wearing them.
Dental implants also work to keep your jawbone healthy. They protect against the deterioration that occurs with traditional dentures. Keeping your bone healthy helps provide better longevity for your denture, making implants a more cost-effective long-term solution. Another benefit of implant-supported dentures is comfortability. Since they do not sit directly on your gums, you can expect little to no gum irritation.
If you choose implant-supported prosthetics, you’ll be happy to know that Dr. Leo can place your implants here in the comfort of either our Raleigh, Zebulon, and Cary, NC dental offices. You’ll work with our team from start to finish and receive a denture or partial that you will be proud to show off.
Even if you already wear a traditional denture or partial, dental implants might still provide you with a better fit. The first step to learning more about your options is to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll be happy to perform a thorough examination and discuss some solutions for you.
