Will I Need Partial or Full Dentures?

Dentures are one of the most popular restorative dental treatments, with millions of Americans using them to replace their missing teeth. At Spring Lake Oral Surgery, we offer a variety of dental services, including full and partial dentures for patients looking to replace a few teeth, a row, or all of their teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a great option for those who are missing anywhere from one to several of their teeth on their upper or lower arch. Partial dentures are helpful in filling any gaps in your smile while preventing existing teeth from shifting.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are a cost-effective solution for someone who is missing all or almost all of their natural teeth. They are composed of natural-looking artificial teeth attached to an acrylic base that is then adhered to your gums. This allows you to eat, talk, and smile with confidence.

For certain patients, having full dentures may be a better option than partial dentures, even if they have some teeth remaining. Our team can help determine which type of denture is best for you depending on your unique situation.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Another option is implant-supported dentures, which consist of a set of implants your dentures can snap into for an extra secure fit. Implants reduce deterioration of your jawbone and keep your dentures firmly anchored in your mouth to prevent slippage. Either full or partial dentures can be implant-supported.

Are Dentures Comfortable?

Dentures aren’t what they used to be many years ago! Modern dentures are comfortable, functional, and beautiful.

After you first get dentures, it might take some time to adjust to having the prosthesis on your gums. But once any residual swelling subsides and you get used to moving your mouth with your dentures, cleaning them, and soaking them every night, you’ll enjoy a fully-functioning smile and an improved quality of life!
