Sometimes dental conditions, such as tooth decay or gum disease, can become unmanageable. This may lead to the decision to remove your remaining teeth. Regardless of the case, full dentures are an economical and efficient way to restore your function and smile.
While dentures have a long successful history, modern technology offers better options to enhance the way dentures fit and look. In many cases, dentures can be secured more firmly to your jaw with the use of dental implants, placed in the jaw and connected under the base of the denture. Surf Smiles Family Dentistry can discuss these options and help you understand the ways they can improve your experience with dentures.
Whether you’ve lost one tooth or many, chewing and smiling can become more difficult because of the gaps left behind. Partial dentures are an economical solution to replace the missing teeth and fill in the spaces, improving chewing ability and the confidence to smile. A partial denture in place will also help keep your natural teeth from shifting, lowering the risk of losing those teeth in the future.
With advances in technology, implants can also be used to support removable partial dentures, improving the fit while reducing the size of the appliance.
We look forward to discussing your options to improve your dental health and give you back a confident smile.
