Why you should consider full or partial dentures


Think missing teeth are just a cosmetic concern?

Think again.

Those gaps in your smile can lead to a number of issues, including problems with eating and speech, shifting teeth, sagging facial muscles, and jawbone deterioration, among others.

Don’t compromise your oral health.

You might find dentures are an ideal option for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile.

The custom-made removable appliances are available in two variations: partial dentures and full dentures. The difference between the two has to do with how many natural teeth remain.

Partial dentures fill the gaps in patients’ smiles like a puzzle piece. They consist of a number of replacement teeth set into a gum colored base held in place with metal clasps.

Full dentures are composed of an arch of replacement teeth set into a more substantial gum colored base. Dentures are crafted to fit snugly against patients’ gums and jawbone creating suction that holds them firmly in place.

The Compassionate Dental Care team can determine which type of denture will best fit your needs.

With either variation, it is important to visit the dentist regularly to ensure that your dentures are in good condition and continue to fit your gums.

Many people struggle with tooth loss. If it is a concern for you, don’t wait to seek help.

Let the Compassionate Dental Care team assess the concern and offer the most conservative treatment to repair your smile while preserving the maximum amount of natural dental structure.
