Well-fitting Partial Dentures for a Lasting Healthy and an Attractive Smile

Dentures are an age-old method of replacing teeth. Modern advancements have led to the invention of well-fitting and natural-looking dentures to restore an attractive smile and healthy bite. Today, you can subtly replace your missing teeth without the hassle and misconceptions associated with dentures of past generations.

You rarely lose teeth in a predictable way. You never know whether you will lose one, several, or all of your teeth. Luckily, dentures can be customized to replace your missing teeth, depending on your needs. If you have lost one or more teeth in a row, partial dentures from Carolinas BioHealth Dentistry in Clemmons, North Carolina, can seamlessly bridge your gap for a complete smile.

What are partial dentures?

If you have lost all or most of your teeth in all or either arch, Dr. Tyler Wynne will recommend complete dentures to restore your smile. However, we recommend a partial denture if you have lost one or some teeth.

Partial dentures act like dental bridges. They sit in the space without teeth and are anchored by the surviving healthy teeth. Like complete dentures, partials are made from a gum-colored acrylic base with natural-looking “artificial teeth.” Partials are clasped on the remaining teeth but can be easily removed to allow cleaning or for your gums to rest at night.

What to expect from the denture procedure

While dentures serve the same purpose of replacing missing teeth, Dr. Wynne customizes your treatment according to your needs. We can replace your missing teeth with fixed, removable, or implant-retained partials. The best option depends on your oral health, budget, and personal preferences.

Replacing your lost teeth with dentures requires at least two dental appointments. During the initial consultation, we discuss your current oral health and expectations. If we establish that dentures are right for you, we take your bite impressions and send the images to a dental lab to create customized dentures. We create well-fitting dentures that fit your smile like a glove. Your dentures remain in place when talking, laughing, or eating.

Benefits of dentures

Whether replacing your missing teeth with partial or complete dentures, you get numerous benefits, including:

  • Renewed confidence
  • Youthful appearance
  • Better chewing ability
  • Restored speech ability
  • They are a quick and cost-effective way to replace missing or troublesome teeth
