Dr. Share and his team love giving Boston its beautiful smiles back with removable full and partial dentures. This procedure is a sound treatment alternative for many patients who have experienced tooth loss. Dentures are can be full or partial, and supported by dental implants, or not. Let’s take a closer look at each option.
Full and Partial Dentures
Much like the name suggests, full dentures replace a whole row of missing teeth from the top or bottom of the mouth, while partial dentures fit like a missing puzzle piece between the rest of the existing natural teeth. When not supported by dental implants, full and partial dentures are held in place by suction, clips and brackets or with an over-the-counter denture adhesive.
Full and partial dentures restore your ability to eat, speak and smile just like you’re used to -- free from the worry and stress that often accompanies tooth loss.
Patients who desire a non-removable treatment alternative can consider dental implant-supported dentures. Dr. Share actually recommends this as the preferred way to replace one or more missing teeth, as dental implants provide the stability for the prosthesis that cannot be achieved with simple suction or denture adhesives. Aside from stability, dental implants also improve oral health overall.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are inserted directly into the space left by each missing tooth. Over a period of six months, they gradually fuse with the jaw bone -- a process known as osseointegration. Once the recovery period is complete, your dental implants are ready to receive the new tooth replacement on top.
The benefits of dental implants are significant. Some include:
- Increased oral and overall health due to the stimulation provided by a prosthetic root
- Restored ability to eat, speak and smile like you’re used to
- No need to bother with over-the-counter denture adhesives
- When cared for correctly, dental implants can easily last the wearer’s lifetime
There’s really no question about it. When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you can’t do better than the support dental implants provide.
