Full & Partial Dentures
At Harmony Dental Health, we understand losing teeth can be unavoidable and a trying experience. However, our professional team knows how to treat tooth loss with full and partial dentures. With the help from one of our experienced dentists, you can restore the look and functionality of your smile.
What is a Denture and Partial?
Is a partial or full denture right for you? The answer to that question will depend on your specific situation and how many teeth need to be replaced. Check out these descriptions of these dental solutions:
- Full Dentures: A denture replaces an entire set of teeth. These will sit in your mouth with the aid of an adhesive.
- Partials Dentures: As you might’ve guessed from the name, partial dentures replace one or a few teeth. The partial will attach to your remaining teeth via bridges or clasps.
More Than a Cosmetic Issue
Replacing your missing teeth with full or partial dentures is much more than a cosmetic solution. Missing teeth can lead to:
- Speaking Difficulty: Your teeth help you annunciate and pronounce words clearly. Without certain key teeth, you may have slurred or unclear speech.
- Periodontal Disease: Gum disease can weaken your teeth or cause infection. Problem teeth may have to be removed to preserve remaining teeth and gum tissue.
- Sagging: Your teeth provide support for your cheeks and other regions of your face. Dentures serve to provide the missing support you need.
- Future Tooth Loss: Your gums depend on your teeth for support so missing teeth can lead to damaged tissue. As a result, your remaining teeth are more prone to dental issues.
The Importance of Customized Dentures
Full and partial dentures can help you avoid a full range of dental issues, but the key to a truly preventative treatment is the perfect fit. The benefits of a Harmony Dental Health customized fit are:
- Secure Support: Your dentures won’t slip or damage your gums with rubbing. They’ll stay in place just like they are supposed to.
- Proper Function: When your dentures in place, you can bite, chew and smile confidently.
- Bite Alignment: Your dentist will ensure proper teeth alignment to give you the support and dependability your need from your dentures.
