The Differences Between Full and Partial Dentures
Depending on the health of your teeth and the kind of structural corrections you will need in your jaw, our dentist suggests either full or partial dentures. If you only have several teeth that need removal while the others are healthy, partial dentures are your best option. However, if you have lost several teeth and the others are diseased, full dentures will serve you better. They will give you a better foundation throughout your mouth and keep your jaw healthier in the long run.
Lean More About Our Dental Implants
Perhaps you would prefer permanent replacement teeth instead of regular dentures. This would eliminate the need to take out dentures every night during sleep as well as the extra maintenance they require. If so, you can choose to have permanent dental implants to restore your smile. While dentures can be removed, dental implants are permanent. Rely on our experienced, compassionate dentist to explain each step of the procedure to you, including all of its benefits.
The specific procedure required for permanent dental implants involves replacing the root from a missing tooth with a new one. At our dental clinic, we first remove the original teeth. Then we add a titanium screw and fuse it to your jawbone. The replacement tooth fits over the implant which is made to look completely natural for a tooth that looks just like your own.
This not only makes it impossible for anyone to notice that you have had extensive dental work done, it also is better for your jaw in the long run. The screws provide structure for your jaw, meaning it won’t degrade as time goes on. It will prevent you from appearing older than you actually are from the lack of support in your facial bones.
