Are you missing teeth, maybe even all your teeth? Unfortunately, this can effect your life, your health, and your confidence in your smile. There are many options to help you get back your life, health, and loving your smile.
Dr. DeLong and his well-trained team offer several dentures options, and can help you find the best options for your needs.
- Full set of traditional dentures — These dentures, though the system has been around a long time, are still helpful and affordable to many people who have most or all of their teeth missing. Traditional dentures are custom made for you and are attached to your gums with adhesive.
- Partial dentures — Partial dentures are a device that replaces a few teeth that are side by side in your mouth. Partial dentures can either be permanently secured to dental crowns on each side of the device, or they can be removable and are something like a retainer. They are attached to dental crowns on each side of the device.
- Implant supported dentures — Implant supported dentures are the most permanent option for you. The dentures are like traditional dentures, but instead of being attached to your gums with adhesive, they are secured permanently to dental implants placed strategically in your mouth. Dental implants are small metal bars that are placed into your jawbone and then topped with dental crowns. Dental implants are sturdy and long-lasting.
Dentures look like your natural teeth because they are color-matched to any existing teeth you have. With some dentures devices, you have to be somewhat careful about what you eat, though with implant supported dentures, this isn’t as much of an issue.
