Dentures

Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Those with missing multiple teeth may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures. During your consultation, we’ll assess all your options, recommending options that will promote health and youthful appearance and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.

Partial

Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth but would like an alternative to a fixed bridge. They enlist the remaining natural teeth or implants for retention and rest on the remaining gum for added support. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor.

Complete

When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind that depends on the gum and bone structures for support or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Dr Diederich can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
