When a tooth or teeth cannot be saved, a possible replacement option is a denture. Dentures, whether full or partial, supplement teeth and are retained by either remaining teeth or by soft tissue. Advancements in dentistry are allowing dentures to be made with little to no metal; giving the patient an esthetic treatment result that traditionally would not have been possible. Having them takes getting used to but our team at Pineview will help you make a smooth adjustment.
Conventional full dentures, immediate full dentures and partial dentures are available at Pineview Dental Care. Conventional full dentures are placed after teeth are removed and gum tissue has healed. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after teeth are removed and require adjustments during the gum healing process. Partial dentures utilize a frame attached to remaining teeth and can be removable or permanent.
Our team is ready to help you determine which option best suits yours needs. We can also help you learn how to make your dentures last as long as possible by brushing and cleaning them, caring for your mouth and gums and calling us anytime you need to have them adjusted.
