Dentures are either partial or full, and both are custom-fitting and designed to look completely natural. Partial removable dentures feature a metal framework that fits comfortably over the gums. This type of restoration is typically secured by metal clasps placed around surrounding teeth.
Dr. Shainholtz will examine your smile to determine whether traditional or implant-supported dentures are the best solution to restore your oral health.
Patients who are currently missing all their teeth or require extractions are candidates for full dentures. Today’s traditional dentures look and feel natural, and can greatly improve patients’ ability to enunciate and chew properly. Upper dentures cover the entire roof of the mouth, using a combination of adhesive and suction to remain in place, while lower dentures simply rest on the gums. Partial and full restorations can easily be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
