DENTURES AND PARTIALS
Full and partial dentures are a popular and convenient option for those who have suffered from tooth loss.
Dentures are a popular option for tooth replacement, offering an affordable alternative to options such as dental implants and bridges. Dentures or prosthetic teeth are commonly referred to as false teeth. They are specially designed to replace an individual’s missing or diseased teeth. Lost teeth need to be replaced for several, very valid reasons:
- To help with chewing and eating
- To keep teeth in line
- To look younger
- To restore a person’s smile
Made to order exclusively for each patient, the dentures fit snugly in the mouth cavity, well supported by the soft and hard tissues that surround them.
If you suffer from missing teeth, and would like to learn more about your replacement options, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Sorensen.
Unlike other solutions to tooth loss, dentures are prostheses that can be removed for cleaning or other purposes.
Full dentures are an option for people who are missing all of the teeth from their upper jaw, lower jaw, or both.
Partial dentures are an option for people who are missing only some of the teeth in their upper jaw, lower jaw, or both.
