Dentures and Partials
If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, a partial or complete denture may improve your smile and your health. The ability to chew your food well allows the digestive process to work more efficiently. Also, the support provided by a denture or partial helps the facial muscles retain a more youthful appearance. You will be able to eat and speak better with one of these appliances.
An immediate denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth have been removed. Several preliminary visits are necessary for measurements and models, as well as a try-in with a wax replica before the final delivery. With this kind of denture, you do not need to go without teeth during the healing period.
A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. It can be attached to the remaining teeth with clasps. Most clasps are barely visible and some can be hidden completely.
