Dr. Jon Glenn may recommend dentures if you have lost multiple teeth. Dentures are a type of removable oral appliance consisting of prosthetic teeth set into a plastic base. They are custom-made to fit your teeth and smile perfectly so that you can regain full oral function as well as an aesthetic appearance. With dentures, you can improve your ability to speak and eat, regain and support your natural facial volume, and restore your beautiful smile.
There are several types of dentures available to meet your needs:
- Complete dentures — Complete dentures replace all the teeth in a full dental arch. They may be used to replace one or both arches based on your needs.
- Partial dentures — Partials are recommended when you are missing many teeth but still have some natural teeth remaining. This type of denture includes a thin framework of clasps attached to the natural teeth to provide a more secure fit for your appliance.
- Implant-supported dentures — This type of denture is anchored in place using strategically placed implants, providing you with a highly stable result as well as a cost-effective treatment.
Our dentist will carefully examine your mouth and discuss your options with you to determine if dentures are the right option for your needs.
After you receive dentures, we will provide you with instructions on how to care for your appliance, as well as check the appliance during your regular dental visits to ensure that it is in good condition and working properly for you. Our dentist will recommend maintenance for your dentures as needed. We encourage you to contact us immediately if your denture breaks or is in need of repair. We never want you to go without teeth and will provide repairs or other maintenance as quickly as possible to restore your smile.
