Full and Partial Dentures
We offer full and partial dentures, also known as removable prosthetics, at our dental office in Copley, OH. During a consultation, we can determine if dentures are the right solution for you. If you decide to move forward with this restorative treatment, we’ll ensure you have the right kind of denture that solves your dental concerns and that fits perfectly in your mouth.
What Are Removable Prosthetics?
Removable prosthetics is another term for dentures, whether they’re full or partial dentures. Unlike permanent dentures with dental implants, these are the type of dentures that you remove before sleeping or to clean. You then reinsert them when you need them.
Prosthetic teeth are used to fill in the spaces where you have lost your natural teeth or had them removed because of a problem like cavities or gum disease. Dentures provide a tooth replacement for eating, talking and smiling. They can also replace missing tissue found around the natural teeth.
Removable dentures are natural-looking teeth connected to a plastic base designed to look like gums. They sometimes include a metal framework for structure and hold.
Removable vs. Fixed Dentures
An important downside to be aware of with removable dentures is that the jawbone loses tissue and strength without permanent teeth in place, which also impacts the shape of your face. If you have some natural teeth intact with removable partial dentures, the natural teeth can shift. These issues can be prevented with fixed teeth replacements instead of removable ones.
Removable dentures have benefits as well. They are valuable because they provide a replacement option for missing teeth. You gain the look and function of a full set of teeth. Removable dentures also cost less than fixed ones. Dr. Maze would be happy to discuss your options and the best fit for you.
Partial or Full Dentures
If you’re missing all of your teeth on the top and/or bottom jaw, you’ll need a full set of dentures to replace the full set of teeth. This would include a full set of replacement teeth attached to a base that resembles gums.
If you still have one or a few teeth, you have the option of partial dentures to fill in the spaces between your intact teeth. In this case, we would place crowns on the teeth you still have and use attachments to connect the removable partial denture to the crowns. The intact teeth keep the dentures in place, and then the dentures keep the intact teeth from moving. The partial denture would still be removable.
