At Austin Bluffs Dental, we can help you to restore your smile with dentures!
Why do I need dentures?
Dentures are a popular treatment option for replacing one or more missing teeth. As opposed to implants, dentures are generally removable, and thanks to recent dental advancements, today’s dentures are more comfortable and authentic looking than ever before.
Difference between full and partial dentures?
Both full and partial dentures are custom-made from impressions taken from each individual patient. Full dentures are suggested when all or most of the natural teeth are missing. If the remaining natural teeth need to be extracted, the dentures will not be fitted or placed until your mouth as healed properly.
Partial dentures rest and connect to your natural teeth, or crowns may be placed to serve as anchors for the denture. Essentially, partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
Over time, your dentures may need to be touched up due to natural wear that may cause the dentures to not fit properly. Along with regular cleanings and examinations, you should visit Dr. Kearney at least annually to analyze the status of your dentures.
