What are dentures?
Dentures are restorations made to replace one or more teeth. There are a few different types of dentures available, and the process of choosing one starts with a consultation visit with Dr. Nancy Gill. She will evaluate a patient and make a proper recommendation. Some of the dentures available at her facility include:
- Partial denture – a partial denture is used to replace one or more teeth in the smile that has been lost or extracted. This restoration uses a metal framework that snaps into the dental arch and slides false teeth into the gaps left behind. Partial dentures are often inexpensive and are commonly covered in part or in whole by dental insurance policies.
- Full denture – a full denture is fabricated to replace all the teeth in the dental arch. It includes acrylic fake teeth and false gum tissues. A full denture is held in place using denture adhesives or natural suction.
- Implant-supported denture – for patients who want longevity and proper hold, an implant-supported denture may be considered. This is a complete denture that is made to work with numerous implants placed along the dental arch for a strong and sturdy foundation. The implant-supported denture is the gold standard in tooth replacement, and offers the best in strength and durability.
