Dentures and Partials
Life with missing teeth just isn’t the same. You lose a great deal of your dental ability, and your daily activities turn from simple to difficult. Your speaking and chewing are compromised, leaving you feeling uncomfortable. Even worse, your confidence level suffers. You just don’t feel like yourself without your full smile. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer through life with spaces in your grin: dentures or partials will replace even full sets of lost teeth.
Modern dentures have made great strides in fit and function. With precision fitting, state-of-the-art materials, and high-tech fabrication, your dentures will feel as natural as you could imagine. When paired with dental implants, dentures become even more secure. If you’ve experienced frustration with dental restorations, give dentures another chance. Denture technology is ever-evolving.
Dentures are typically made of a combination of metals and synthetic materials. We strive to create dentures that will feel comfortable, resist bacteria to keep the mouth clean, and function similarly to natural teeth. Although growing familiar with the feel and use of your dentures will take time, they will eventually feel remarkably at home in your mouth. We will be available to help you with any concerns along the way.
If you have retained some of your teeth, partial dentures could replace missing ones without requiring extraction of the others. Partials may be fixed or permanent, depending on your wishes. Partial dentures commonly draw support from surrounding structures like remaining teeth and the gums. Implants may also be paired with partials to enhance stability.
Today’s dentures are nearly unrecognizable from their ancestors. Your dentures will be a marvel of modern craftsmanship and dental restoration. If you’d like to learn more about replacing missing teeth, get in touch with Elkhart Dental Center to schedule a consultation.
