Using dentures and partial dentures as a solution for tooth loss
The idea of false teeth can result in patients being unsure of how to find the right solution for tooth loss. Many patients picture false restorations that look like their grandparents’ dentures that fail to stay in place. Dentures have come a long way in appearance and function thanks to continued advances in restorative dentistry. Patients now have many different options for replacing missing teeth, including partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-retained dentures, available at Chalfont Dental Care in Chalfont, Pennsylvania.
What types of permanent and removable dentures are available with Dr. Varvara Clark?
Our team is equipped to offer the following dental solutions for patients to consider when it comes to replacing missing teeth:
- Partial dentures. Partial dentures, sometimes called removable dentures, are a type of appliance that can fill in gaps left by missing teeth. They are typically made from resin, metal, or a combination of both and are held in place with clasps that attach to the surrounding natural teeth for stability.
- Full dentures. Full dentures consist of an entire set of artificial teeth on either one or both arches, which rest within the mouth along the gums. These types of dentures can help patients regain their ability to chew and speak more effectively.
- Implant-retained dentures. Implant-retained dentures are secured with dental implants that act as anchors and securely hold the prosthetic. This is considered to be a more comfortable solution and provides superior stability over traditional dentures with denture adhesives.
