MODERN DENTURES

More Comfortable and Convenient

 

Dentures are an effective and affordable way to replace your missing teeth. If you need to replace your teeth, consider the benefits of modern dentures. While they have been around for centuries, they used to be ill-fitting and uncomfortable. If you imagine dentures and picture someone with loose and overly large teeth, think again. They are now more natural-looking, comfortable, and easier to wear than ever before. Today‚Äôs dentures are custom-fit to make it possible to eat foods with confidence and speak articulately. The key is to see a Dentist who can fit you for the perfect set.

TYPES OF DENTURES

 
 

Partial Dentures

 

Partial or removable dentures or dental bridges consist of natural looking replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base that is either gum or pink colored. The bridge or partial denture can sometimes be connected using metal framework to hold the denture in its place.

If you have one or more of your natural teeth in your lower or upper jaw, a partial denture may be recommended. A fixed bridge is used to replace one, two, or more of your missing teeth by placing a dental crown on the abutment teeth, which are the teeth that sit on the sides of the space left by the missing tooth. A dental bridge is then bonded securely into place. A partial denture fills the space that was created by a missing tooth, and prevents your other teeth from shifting of moving.
