Full And Partial Dentures Offer Full Smiles Again

When you suffer from tooth loss too advanced for a bridge, then you may need a set of dentures. Our team can offer both full and partial dentures to restore bite function and the appearance of your smile. In today’s blog, your Columbia, TN, dentist looks at how we design and craft these custom and lifelike dentures.


The Risks of Advanced Tooth Loss

When you have lost enough natural teeth that dentures could be necessary, this could mean major complications for your oral health and quality of life. You could find your meal options limited, and your nutritional intake may suffer. Clear speech could be difficult, and you could develop misalignment. To avoid these issues and to restore function and beau to your smile, you need tooth replacement. Our team can examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your tooth loss, so we can decide which set of prosthetics is right for you. We can also begin treating the underlying factors behind your missing teeth to choose the best treatment option.


When you have multiple gaps spread out across your smile, but enough natural teeth that a full denture isn’t needed, we could create a partial. The prosthetic is crafted based on detailed digital, images and measurements we take of your smile. The prosthetic will contain new teeth that fit within the gaps in your smile. The new teeth will be made from ceramic and shaded to blend with your smile. Metal clasps will attach to natural teeth to keep them in place. These will be removable and tend to last about 5 to 10 years on average.


If you need a complete set of dentures, then our team may gently extract the last few teeth and take detailed images and impressions of your bite to design and fabricate your prosthetic. They will contain a full row of new ceramic teeth set in an acrylic base that mimics the appearance of gum tissues. Adhesives or suction will keep them in place. The removable options last about 5 to 10 years. However, for some patients we could secure fulls or partials with dental implants, which allows them to last for decades and helps prevent changes to the shape of your jaw ridge.
