Restore Your Missing Teeth

Patients who have suffered significant tooth loss can greatly benefit from dentures and partials, which restore the missing teeth in a natural, sturdy way. Dr. Mariya Barnett offers high-quality prosthetics that create confident, beautiful smiles! Keep reading to learn more about dentures and partials -- including what they are, their benefits, and what it takes to get them. You deserve a complete and healthy smile, even after significant tooth loss.

What Are Dentures and Partials?

A denture is a set of prosthetic teeth attached to an acrylic base that is designed to look just like your healthy gum tissue. Dentures are created out of natural-looking materials for an inconspicuous replacement.

A complete denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw; a partial denture fills in the gap left behind when a few natural teeth still remain healthy and strong in the jaw. The complete denture is held in place using natural suction and the help of a denture cream if needed. A partial denture clicks into place, supported by metal brackets affixed to natural teeth. For eligible candidates, dental implants provide additional security for a complete or partial denture.

Benefits of High-Quality Tooth Replacement

Finding an effective replacement for missing teeth is vitally important for your oral and overall health. Gaps in the smile result in a weaker jawbone, increasing the risk that you will lose additional teeth later on. It is also difficult to eat a balanced, nutritious diet when you cannot chew properly. A lisp or whistle may develop in the speech as well.

Fortunately, dentures and partials offer a wealth of benefits for patients who have experienced significant tooth loss. Some of these benefits include…

  • Dentures made from high-quality porcelain look just like your natural smile.
  • Any remaining natural teeth stay stable in the jaw, meaning they will not drift out of place to cause orthodontic issues.
  • The facial structure retains volume with prosthetic teeth for a more youthful appearance.
  • Traditional dentures offer an affordable method of tooth replacement.
  • An implant-retained denture offers superior stability and promotes better oral health for years to come.

What Is the Process for Dentures and Partials?

To create a denture or partial, we will schedule an initial consultation in which your dentist in Lake Highlands will examine your mouth and have impressions and X-rays taken. This information is used by the partner lab, which will create your customized denture or partial from high-quality materials. Once it is ready, you return to our office for instructions on use and maintenance. When you leave, you will be the proud new owner of a beautiful denture! With proper care, a traditional denture will function well for 5 to 7 years before replacement is needed.
