Full & Partial Dentures at Palmetto Family Dental
Every smile tells a story, and at Palmetto Family Dental, we've been privileged to be a part of thousands of them.
What are full and partial dentures?
Full and partial dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. While full dentures replace all teeth in an arch, partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Why choose dentures for tooth replacement?
Dentures offer several benefits:
- Aesthetics: Restore the appearance of a full set of teeth.
- Functionality: Improve speech and chewing abilities.
- Facial Structure: Prevent facial sagging caused by missing teeth.
- Affordability: A cost-effective solution compared to other restorative options like dental implants.
How are dentures made and fitted?
The process begins with taking precise impressions of your mouth. These impressions are used to create custom dentures that fit comfortably. Once crafted, adjustments are made to ensure a perfect fit. For those missing only a few teeth, partial dentures or dental bridges might be recommended.
How to care for your dentures?
Regular cleaning is essential to maintain the longevity of your dentures. It's also crucial to schedule regular dental check-ups to ensure the health of your gums and any remaining teeth.
