FULL & PARTIAL DENTURES IN OKEECHOBEE
A smile without all its teeth — it’s a little bit like an unfinished painting. It almost comes together, but then in the end, it just… doesn’t. Fortunately, full and partial dentures from our dentists at Tenniswood Dental Associates can replace your teeth to help you show off a masterpiece every single time you smile. Keep reading to learn more about your options in tooth replacement.
Restoring Your Smile With Full or Partial Dentures
Dentures have long been a trusted solution in tooth replacement. Prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, they can restore your ability to eat, speak and smile just like you’re used to. Dentures are a natural-looking, stable way to replace several or a whole row of missing teeth.
Just like the name suggests, partial dentures can replace several missing teeth. Whether they’ve been lost from the same area or in different parts of the mouth, partial dentures provide a solid tooth replacement.
Unlike with partial dentures, full dentures can replace a whole row of missing teeth. Good for both the top and bottom teeth, it may take some time to get used to the feel of full dentures — but it’s well worth the investment in the end.
There are a number of options when it comes to how your dentures will stay in place. When not retained by dental implants, partial dentures can clip in, snap on or be held in place by brackets. Full dentures can also be secured by suction or an over-the-counter denture adhesive.
When considering your options for denture retention, you should know that dental implants provide the sturdiest fit for partial and full dentures. In fact, implant-retained dentures are associated with a number of benefits for the wearer, perhaps the most significant of which is the unsurpassed stability they provide.
Additional benefits of dental implants include the following.
- Increased jawbone health. Our bones need stimulation to thrive — but without a prosthetic root, non-implant retained tooth replacements lead to a degenerating jawbone and worsening oral health. Dental implants keep the mouth healthy and whole for a lifetime.
- Freedom from an ill-fitting device and messy denture adhesives. With dental implants, you can feel confident knowing your prosthetic tooth will fit perfectly from the very first day and for years to come. That means you’ll never have to worry about your teeth falling out or slipping around while you’re eating, speaking or laughing.
- The best investment you can make. Non-implant retained prosthetics will need to be refitted over the years as the mouth degenerates due to poor jawbone health. But because dental implants keep the mouth healthy and whole, and can easily last a lifetime when cared for properly, you truly can’t make a better choice for your wallet.
