Dentures and Partial Dentures in Miamisburg
Dentures and partial dentures are often the best way to treat patients who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or an injury. They’re an affordable, full or partial solution that restores your smile, and Dr. William Almoney and Dr. Gerald Brown of Miamisburg Family Dental specialize in providing these dental prosthetics.
How Do Dentures Work?
Dentures are built out of natural-looking materials that are shaped to mimic the appearance and functionality of your teeth. They are a type of restorative dentistry treatment that gives patients their smiles back.
Full dentures fit tightly over your gums and are secured with a temporary adhesive daily. Partial dentures usually use a metal or resin clasp that attaches to your healthy teeth, snapping the denture into place. Dental implants can even be used to hold dentures and partials in place more securely. With only a few implants, the dentures can be attached more securely to allow for better function and comfort.
All types of dentures serve the same purpose. They are built to allow patients with tooth loss to smile, speak, chew, and drink normally.
Understanding Partial Vs. Full Dentures
Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth and use the remaining healthy teeth to support the prosthetic. After a consultation, our team will take impressions and begin designing your partial denture. We’ll make sure the fit feels and looks natural, and that you feel comfortable placing and cleaning it before we say your smile is restored.
Full dentures are used when the majority of a patient’s teeth are missing or too unhealthy to be restored. Full dentures require the removal of all existing teeth from your upper or lower jaws, sometimes even both. Dentures can even be made before your teeth are removed so that you can have an immediate replacement. With the addition of a dental adhesives, your denture will fit tightly over your gums, and feel more like a natural set of teeth.
