When you attend your appointment with Dr. Parry, your dentist in Summerfield, he will thoroughly evaluate your oral health before he recommends a tooth replacement solution. Candidates for dentures have lost a significant number of teeth (if you have lost just one or two teeth, a bridge might be ab better option). Different types of dentures are available to suit a range of patients, including those who want a budget-friendly way to rebuild their smile, as well as individuals who are interested in investing in dental implants.
When meeting with Dr. Parry to discuss which method is best to replace your missing teeth in Summerfield, he will likely recommend one of three options:
Using an acrylic, gum-colored base and artificial teeth, your partial denture will be crafted by lab technicians to ensure your prosthetic fits like a puzzle piece when put into place. Depending on the location of your missing teeth, your partial should easily fill in the gaps and anchor to your natural teeth using clips or clasps.
When it comes to an entire row of missing teeth, you can opt for a full denture. A top prosthetic is made to cover the entire roof of your mouth while a lower denture is made to resemble a horseshoe because of the necessary space allotted for your tongue. Made from the same materials as a partial denture, the prosthetic sits on top of your gums and is held in place by your natural suction; however, you are free to use a small bit of dental adhesive for added security.
Another option for individuals looking to replace an entire arch of teeth is implant dentures. Dr. Parry is proud to offer fixed and removable dentures that are attached to multiple dental implants that are secured to your jawbone. Requiring minor oral surgery, these prosthetics can remain firmly in place for a lifetime as long as you maintain proper care of them throughout the years.
The benefits you’ll receive with dentures are why so many people have and continue to turn to these prosthetics to restore their smiles. Some of the great advantages that come from them include:
