Dentures & Partials
In order to achieve a full, beautiful smile, you may benefit from either full dentures or partials. These prosthetic appliances can be easily removed at any time for effortless cleaning. They are also made to look and even feel like real teeth, so you can benefit from the fact that your smile will look as good as it has in the past. At Perspective Dentistry, we offer both dentures and partials to patients who can benefit from these appliances.
What is a Denture and Partial?
A denture is a full arch of teeth that will replace what you’re missing. If you are missing all of your teeth or are going to be having decayed or loose teeth removed, a denture is the best choice for you. Partials are smaller and only have several teeth attached to the appliance, so they are more suited for patients who still have most of their teeth but are missing several.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures and Partials?
A comprehensive examination as well as series of x-rays is necessary to determine if you are a viable candidate for dentures or partials. Some of the reasons we might recommend you get these appliances include:
- You are missing a lot or all of your teeth
- You want an appliance that is easy to remove and clean
- You’re looking to improve and correct your smile
- You’re looking for an option that will last for years
What to Expect with the Procedure
Dentures and partials can last for upwards of five to seven years before needing to be replaced. Because of this, they make an ideal long-term solution for people who want a more beautiful and fuller smile. In order to have dentures or partials made, you will need to come into the office for impressions. These are then sent to a local dental lab where the dentures are custom created for you. The dentures can be filed down and adjusted as needed for a fit that is comfortable and easy to wear.
