Redlands, CA, dentist offers full dentures and partials for tooth replacement
Missing teeth? Confused about the solutions available to you? Dr. Jennifer Nation, of Brookside Smiles Dentistry, understands how overwhelming it can be when patients are presented with all their options for tooth loss. However, many patients in the Redlands, California area considering an economical yet functional solution after having teeth extracted or lost, will often find dentures and partials to be a wonderful way to repair the smile’s appearance and function.
What is a denture?
Dr. Jennifer Nation describes a denture as a restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth within the smile. There are three types of dentures available through Brookside Smiles Dentistry:
- Partial denture – a partial denture is a restoration that is used to replace one or more teeth in a dental arch. This denture is made of a metal framework that snaps into the dental arch using clasps and the existing teeth for support. It is easily removed for simple care and attention and is often covered in part or whole by dental insurance plans.
- Full denture – a full denture is a type of denture used in replacing all the teeth in a dental arch. This denture is made with acrylic and is maintained in place using dental adhesives. The full denture is commonly used with more extensive tooth loss and can be the most affordable solution.
- Implant-retained denture – for the best in stabilization and function, many patients with extensive tooth loss consider the benefits of dentures that are kept in place using dental implants. Patients who have sufficient bone can have dental implants placed along the arch, which are then used in holding more conservative full dentures that eliminate the palate. These dentures function at their best as they have a strong and sturdy anchor with the bone of the jaw.
