Are you missing all or most of your teeth? If so, we recommend dentures as a great way to restore function and improve your smile. In the past, dentures were bulky and uncomfortable, but modern day technology has changed all that. At Svans Dentistry we offer a range of options including full, partial, or implant-supported dentures.
Traditional (Full and Partial) Dentures
Some patients choose traditional dentures because they want the option of being able to remove their dentures. With these dentures, the plastic base is the color of your gums and fits snugly around your dental ridge.
We’ll make impressions of your mouth and the denture will be modeled on those impressions, so that it fits securely and comfortably and looks natural. A full denture simply means that the denture will replace your entire dental arch, whether upper or lower or both. Partial dentures restore several missing teeth and fit securely onto those teeth that do remain.
Some patients want a more stable option. In that case, we offer implant-supported dentures. For this procedure, Dr. Svans will place a dental implant (or multiple dental implants) into your jaw. These implants act as your tooth’s roots and become a strong foundation for the denture.
The benefit of implant-supported dentures is that they are far less likely to slip out of place. Further, they can aid in preventing the deterioration of your jawbone because the implants simulate teeth roots.
Benefits of Dentures
Whatever type of dentures you choose, the fact remains that dentures can significantly improve your quality of life. You may notice that your smile is lovelier, eating and chewing become much more enjoyable, and the overall health of your mouth is improved. At Svans Dentistry we use the latest technology to create dentures that fit well, look great, and feel comfortable.
Once you have your new dentures, you’ll probably notice a new sense of confidence. Dentures can help you look years younger and provide a sense of rejuvenation.
