If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, dentures may be the best option to replace your missing teeth. Full dentures are recommended when all of your teeth need to be replaced. Removable partial dentures are used when you are missing a portion of your teeth. A partial denture fills the gaps in your smile, makes talking and eating easier, and helps ensure that your remaining teeth don’t shift, which can affect your bite.
Lanphier Family Dental can create full or partial dentures that will restore your natural smile and enable you to enjoy a full range of foods.
Implant Retained Dentures
One of our specialties is implant retained dentures. These dentures snap onto titanium-based cylinders that sit in an original tooth’s bone pocket. Implant retained dentures stay in place and function more like real teeth.
Non-implant Retained Dentures
An upper full denture features a plate, which covers the roof of your mouth, while the lower denture is horseshoe-shaped and rests securely on the gum and bone tissue. Through advanced denture technology, today’s full dentures feel comfortable and look like natural teeth.
Removable partial dentures incorporate porcelain or acrylic teeth that match the color of your natural teeth, and they are fixed to an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums. Partial dentures often have some form of clasp that attaches to your natural teeth to hold the denture in place.
