At Grand Dental – Aurora, our team of experts recognizes how detrimental an incomplete smile can be for a person. Without a fully functional mouth, speaking, eating, and smiling can be difficult. This is why dentures in Aurora are considered a viable and worthwhile investment for patients suffering from tooth loss. Customized to fit snugly and comfortably inside a person’s mouth, these prosthetics have come a long way from the days of early civilizations. Contact our team to discuss the option of dentures to replace your missing teeth.
If a person is missing an entire arch of teeth, they’ll likely be considered a candidate for treatment. If a person is only missing a few natural teeth, they may be recommended for a dental bridge. However, if there is a chance the individual could face additional tooth loss in the future, it may be in the person’s best interest to go ahead and have these teeth removed so that a full denture can be put into place.
No matter the decision, patients can trust that our team will identify the ideal solution and establish a treatment plan to help individuals attain their goals.
Implant dentures, full dentures, and partial dentures are the three types of prosthetics a person and their periodontist will go over during an initial consultation. Each offers its own benefits, so any of the following options can help a person reach their smile goals.
With a partial denture, the base is crafted from a gum-colored acrylic, and artificial teeth are placed on top. Because several non-consecutive teeth are missing, this prosthetic will attach to healthy teeth using metal clips, filling in the gaps in one’s smile.
When all natural teeth are missing, the only reliable solution is a full denture. This can be accomplished by taking an impression of the mouth and having customized dentures created to fit comfortably. No matter which arch requires replacement (or both), full dentures are held into place using natural suction and additional adhesive if necessary.
For a more superior tooth replacement solution, implant dentures are a popular choice. With millions of adults in the United States already living with these titanium prosthetics, that number continues to increase because of their functionality, stability, and longevity (30+ years or more!).
