If you are missing teeth and or have several teeth that have continual problems, a denture or even a partial denture may be a good solution for you. A denture is basically porcelain or plastic teeth that replace your natural teeth. They sit on top of the gums and are supported by the ridge, or in the case of the upper arch, the palate. If you are missing only a few teeth, then a partial denture may be an option for you. There are several types of dentures, and several types of partials, so be sure to contact us if you are missing teeth to discuss the options for you.
Some people prefer to have more secure teeth that feel like their natural teeth and this leads us to the option of a dental implant. See the services page on implants to see how they are placed and why a person may wish to get an implant either instead of, or in addition to, a denture. We are able to use implants to help stabile dentures, particularly in those patients with smaller ridges that won’t stabilize a denture well.
