Don’t Miss Out On Life Because of Missing Teeth Learn About Dentures and Partials
Missing teeth can leave you missing out on a lot in life, like enjoying your favorite foods and giving the world your best smile. That’s why at Peachtree Corners Dental Associates, Dr. Kristina Dawson uses restorative treatments such as a temporary immediate denture, removable partial denture, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures to bring back your beautiful smile.
Restoring Your Smile with Dentures
Believe it or not, several types of denture treatments are available to help people restore missing teeth. Let’s take a look at a few.
Immediate dentures can be either a set of complete or partial dentures inserted on the same day following the extraction of your natural teeth.
The most significant advantage of this type of restoration is the immediate replacement of missing teeth. Plus, it is easier to duplicate your natural teeth’s color, shape, and arrangement based on those present inside your mouth. Immediate dentures also act as protection following an extraction while reducing bleeding.
Removable Partial Dentures
Removable partial dentures are dentures that can replace one or more missing teeth. These devices are placed using clasps or a strong dental acrylics. They have a plastic or metal framework that fits securely over existing teeth with false teeth attached to replace missing teeth.
However, the clasps can feel a bit bulky and uncomfortable. These dentures are generally not the most aesthetically pleasing, which is why they are usually used as a temporary solution.
Full dentures are completely fabricated dental arches that include false teeth and gums. They are held in place using natural suction or strong adhesives. While these restorations are generally very secure, they must be adjusted every year or two to compensate for the changes in your jaw’s bone structure.
If dentures are not adjusted, they can become loose and even risk falling out.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are the most secure and reliable form of dentures. They are held in place by dental implants anchored directly into a patient’s jawbone to provide maximum support. Implant Supported Dentures are not removed nightly like traditional dentures.
Four or more implants usually support these dentures. Dr. Dawson would work closely with one of her oral surgeons to place the implants and deliver the implant supported dentures. It is amazing the advancements in dentistry and Dr. Dawson would love to discuss this treatment option with you more if you are at risk of loosing all of your teeth.
