Full & Partial Dentures Can Help You Achieve Your Best Smile
At Planes Dental Arts in Port St. Lucie, we provide our patients with natural-looking, custom-made full and partial dentures. Whether you’re missing one, many, or all your teeth, we’d be happy to discuss whether denture options are the right restorative option for you.
What’s the difference between full and partial dentures?
Full dentures are used when all a patient’s teeth are missing from their upper or lower jaw. They are crafted from an acrylic base that matches a patient’s gums, and with natural-looking artificial teeth. Full dentures can be held in place with suction, an over-the-counter adhesive, or with a series of strategically placed dental implants.
Partial dentures are used when one, two, or many teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw. These restorations are also made from an acrylic base and natural-looking false teeth to fill in gaps, and they are often held in place by metal clasps that attach to surrounding teeth.
What benefits do dentures offer?
Wearing dentures can improve your quality of life in many ways. Not only do they restore your appearance, making you look and feel more attractive, but they also enable you to enjoy a full range of foods. Dentures can also help preserve facial structure by providing support for lips and cheeks that would otherwise cave in due to tooth loss.
Who is a candidate for dentures?
While dentures are likely to be an option for most patients who have lost one or more teeth, it’s important that our team examines your unique needs to not only confirm your candidacy but to ensure that a denture is the right tooth-replacement option for you. In some cases, dental implants or a dental crown and bridge will be a more ideal solution.
