Regain A Healthy Smile With Partial & Full Dentures
If you're looking for a comfortable and convenient way to replace missing teeth, partial and full dentures may be the right choice for you. At Garden Lakes Family Dentistry in Phoenix, we know full and partial dentures can provide an effective solution for a number of tooth loss issues, and our caring and skilled team would be happy to discuss whether these prosthetics may benefit your smile.
What is the difference between partial and full dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are worn over the gums. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth have been lost in a single arch, and partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
How are partial and full dentures fitted?
Making dentures often involves several visits to our office. First, an impression is taken of your mouth, which is then used as a mold for creating your denture. The base is then carefully shaped to fit along the gum line. Once complete, natural-looking false teeth are created and placed into the denture base. When it comes time to fit your dentures, several adjustments will be made to ensure they feel comfortable and look great.
What are the benefits of full and partial dentures?
These prosthetics can be an ideal way to replace missing teeth and restore your smiling, speaking, and chewing confidence. What’s more, they provide support for facial muscles, helping maintain their shape and prevent facial volume loss that occurs following tooth extraction, and with diligent care, dentures can last for many years.
