Dentures are a common way to restore lost teeth. The procedure is non-invasive, yet effective, providing patients with pain-free dental restoration. Our dentists provide many denture options, making sure our patients get the appliance that best fits them. Dr. Jay Patel, Dr. Kanak Trivedi or Dr. Dilip Dudhat will determine what type of denture is needed and correctly fit the prosthetic to the individual.
The two main types of dentures are complete and partial. Partial dentures are made to fit around existing teeth, replacing only a portion of the smile. Complete, or “immediate,” dentures are what many people think of as dentures. The prosthetic replaces the full dental arch or even both arches within the mouth. This is a complete replacement, when there are no natural teeth remaining on either the upper and/or lower jaws. Patients can either choose to have “immediate” or “conventional” complete dentures.
Dentures can improve speech, restore a strong bite, and improve the appearance of the face. Our dental team at Advanced Family Smiles can guide you through your treatment, helping answer questions and giving you a complete understanding of your restorative procedure.
