Full and Partial Denturesadmin2016-05-03T17:02:09+00:00
A smile just isn’t a smile if it’s incomplete. Missing teeth cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating, to low self-confidence, to jawbone deterioration.
Don’t give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made full and partial dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever, and our dentists in Houston are proud to offer them to our patients.
Dentures are a dental device many people have, yet most people do not like to wear them. Those who have had dentures before know how inconvenient they can be. Traditional dentures are simply not designed as well as newer versions. They require applying dental adhesive often, and they can slip and move when you are trying to speak or eat. For many people, this situation simply will not do, and denture replacements are the solution. Now, you can get dentures that not only look more natural, they also work more effectively.
What is a Partial?
A partial denture, commonly referred to as simply a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum-colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.
What is a Denture?
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they require denture adhesive to hold them in place.
Implant-Supported Partial Dentures
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture and do not want clips or adhesive, then consider dental implant-supported dentures. In a brief surgery, our skilled dentists and on-staff periodontist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place.
With implant-supported dentures, you won’t have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.
