Are you missing several teeth or an arch of teeth? Do you want to restore your lost teeth for a healthier smile?
Patients with missing teeth can restore normal oral function, dental health and quality of life with full and partial dentures. Replacing missing teeth helps prevent facial sagging, speech issues, and dietary restrictions.
Before our restorative dental treatments, we ensure that patients are in good oral health. For modern, implant-secured dentures, we may recommend bone grafting services. Dental implants provide a stable foundation for full and partial dentures.
Types of Dentures in Broomall, PA
We offer these types of restorations with dentures at Williamsburg Dental:
Partial dentures may be used to restore a row of multiple missing teeth, typically three or more consecutive lost teeth. They may use the surrounding teeth to support false teeth. However, implant-secured partial dentures last much longer. Multiple implants may be used to secure a partial denture, a tooth replacement that makes it easier for patients to eat and speak more comfortably.
Removable complete dentures benefit patients who have full arches of missing teeth. Complete dentures are typically held by adhesive and lay on the gums. Many patients with removable complete dentures will find that their dentures begin to fit differently over time.
This is due to continual bone and gum shrinkage through the years, creating a gap between the denture and your gums. If needed dentures can be relined to restore the fit of a loose complete denture. Like partial dentures, complete dentures can also be secured semi-permanently with dental implants.
Fixed dentures cannot be removed and may be partial or complete. We use dental implants to support these permanent dentures. For complete fixed dentures, you will need a least four implants in the upper jawbone. The lower jawbone typically requires two or more implants.
An added benefit of dental implants is that they support the health of the gums and jaw bone. During the healing process, dental implants fuse with the jaw bone tissue, creating stability and strength. We can attach the custom denture or dentures once the implants heal.
