Throughout life, many things can affect the health of our teeth. When disease and decay has been allowed to develop in your mouth, this can cause a substantial loss in teeth. Losing teeth is a difficult experience to endure. Thankfully, whether you’re dealing with partial or complete tooth loss, dentures with Mountain Springs Dental can make all the difference!
Many restorative options exist to replace missing teeth. At Mountain Springs Dental, we offer a range of these options, including dental implants, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns. Each of these treatments can be tailor-fit to what you, as our patient, need most. In the case of dentures, you can expect the highest-quality treatment to fit your unique smile.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a dental device used to replace missing teeth. They are supported by the surrounding tissues of the mouth and are made to function and look just like real teeth.
Types of Dentures
There are several different types of dentures. Depending on your specific needs and what work will need to be done for your mouth, teeth, and smile, one type might be better for you than another.
Types of dentures include the following:
Traditional dentures are full sets of teeth typically used by patients with no natural teeth whatsoever. They are held in place with adhesive and can be taken out whenever necessary. These types of dentures make it possible for patients with no teeth to eat and communicate where they otherwise would not be able to.
Partial dentures are for patients missing just a few teeth. These teeth will be replaced with prosthetics that are attached to a mouthpiece that patients can insert and remove at will. With the mouthpiece in, you will have a full smile again!
Differing from traditional dentures in that they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution, custom dentures are crafted specifically for your unique mouth and smile. These dentures work like traditional dentures, but they look more like your natural teeth used to.
Snap-on dentures are held firmly in place thanks to anchored areas in the mouth secured by dental implants. The pieces holding the dental prosthetics can be snapped into place for everyday use and wear.
Implant-supported dentures are fixed dentures held in place by strategically placed dental implants. This option is a more permanent solution to missing teeth where other denture options are removable.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures not only restore your confidence in your smile, they also enable you to eat and communicate with greater ease. Through the use of dentures, your smile will be restored, your facial structure will be supported, and you’ll be enabled to live life more fully and completely.
