Full Dentures / Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable dental appliance specifically constructed to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. Dentures are custom-made to resemble your original teeth and therefore can greatly enhance your dental aesthetics and your smile.
Full dentures are used for patients who are missing all their teeth in a single arch (upper or lower), while partial dentures are used for patients who are missing only some of their teeth.
Dentures can dramatically improve your quality of life by filling in gaps left by missing teeth and therefore:
- Restoring your chewing and speaking ability
- Preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of their normal position and therefore allowing them to keep a proper alignment and bite
- Maintaining your facial structure and preventing a wrinkled, sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth
- Preventing bone loss
- Enhancing your smile
- Improving your self-esteem
Dentures are also considered a cost-effective alternative to dental implants as they have a faster completion time and offer the option to treat several teeth with one procedure. In order to create the most functional and natural-looking dentures, all our dentures are custom-made in a professional dental laboratory using bio-compatible materials, and then fitted to perfection by Dr. Gerald A. Clark, DDS.
Dentures are very durable appliances and with proper care and regular professional dental cleanings and check-ups, will last many years.
