Dentures have been used in some form for centuries to replace missing teeth. Modern dentures are made to fit comfortably over the gums, held in place either by adhesive or dental implants. Most dentures are made from plastic and acrylic or porcelain and can last for many years with proper care. At Restore Dental, we offer both complete and partial dentures to restore complete smiles at our clinic in Highlands Ranch, CO.
When a patient needs a full mouth reconstruction and decides dentures are the best option, there are different types of dentures available. Immediate dentures are made to fit on gums immediately after the remaining teeth are extracted, while conventional dentures are created to fit gums once they shrink from healing after all teeth are removed. Complete dentures do take time for patients to become used to their new teeth, but most people quickly adjust. For many, their dentures give them a gorgeous, functional smile that they have not enjoyed for years, even decades.
Not everyone who can benefit from dentures needs a full mouth reconstruction. If you only have a few missing teeth or just one set of teeth gone, partial dentures can be an option. Partial dentures are removeable appliances that can be held in place with metal brackets that attach to existing teeth or adhesives. For those who are not good candidates for dental implants or fixed dental bridges, partial dentures are an affordable option for teeth restoration.
Modern dentures are more comfortable and natural-appearing than ever. If you want to explore restorative dentistry options, contact us at Restore Dental.
