With missing teeth, many patients are worried about the appearance of their smile, as well as its functionality. It is essential that patients take pride in their smile and work with a dentist to immediately replace these teeth whenever possible. This eliminates problems such as shifting arches and lost bone. Many patients in the area of Palm Beach Gardens, FL are excited to learn about solutions that can replace one or more teeth, including dentures.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable restorations that are used to replace teeth. When patients think of dentures, they sometimes remember their grandparents’ false teeth. They may think of dentures as a problematic solution to missing teeth. Fortunately, dentures have come a long way over the years, and now patients can visit with the dentists at Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry to discuss their options. Dentures include two varieties including partial and full dentures.
Partial dentures are restorations that are used in replacing one or several teeth at once. The restoration is made of acrylic and metal framework and snaps into place within the arch. It uses false teeth that slide into the arch to replace the missing ones, completing the appearance of the smile and improving functionality for eating and speaking.
Patients who have lost all their teeth within the dental arch will want to consider the advantages of full dentures. These are restorations that include false teeth and gums made of acrylic. These are held in place with natural suction, denture glue, or even the use of several dental implants along the arch. Full dentures are the most effective way of replacing all the teeth within the smile and look completely natural, as they are custom made for patients.
