Dentures are a restorative dental service that benefits patients with rows or arches of missing teeth. Dr. Samantha Leatherwood offers dentures to her patients in Denton, TX. Replacing lost or missing teeth with a full or partial denture not only improves the look of the smile but the oral health of the patient. Dental restorations like dentures create a full and stable bite that is evenly distributed. Missing teeth negatively affect the bite and can also make it more difficult to speak properly or chew certain foods. Patients who receive dentures may find that they can now easily enjoy the foods they love.
Partial v. Complete Dentures
Full or complete dentures traditionally require adhesives or snap into place. However, snap-on dentures and removable full dentures do not fully retain the bite. We recommend implant-secured complete dentures to patients missing full arches of teeth. Implant-supported dentures provide more long-term benefits than traditional methods.
Like full dentures, partial dentures may be fixed or removable. Removable partial dentures are made up of prosthetic teeth attached to a framework. This type of denture works best for patients with multiple missing teeth. Dental implants can secure partial dentures for a stable and durable result.
Dentures and Dental Implants
Patients receive a wide array of benefits when they choose dentures secured by dental implants, including:
- No messy adhesives
- Improved bone retention
- Stable fit
- Fewer repairs and alterations
- No slippage
- Improved bite
- Permanent results
It’s never too late to upgrade your dentures. If you already have a removable partial or full denture, our dental team can help secure it with dental implants. Please let us know if you have questions about the denture process and we will be glad to assist you. We take the concerns, budget, and goals of each patient into account before determining their treatment.
