How dentures and partial dentures replace missing teeth ?

Missing teeth happen. Whether you experience periodontal disease that leaves one or more teeth at risk of loss or have had dental trauma, you may notice that you have to replace these teeth for full function, health, and appearance of the smile. Choosing the solution most appropriate for your needs starts with a visit to Glow Dental Spa in Wayne, New Jersey!

What are dentures and partials?

Dentures and partials refer to full dentures and removable partial dentures. Full dentures are a type of prosthetic device that replaces all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Removable partial dentures, however, replace only some of the missing teeth and can be removed for cleaning. When you consult with our team at Glow Dental Spa, we can advise on the different types of tooth replacement options you qualify for due to the health and wellness of your current smile.

Why choose dentures and partials to replace missing teeth?

Both dentures and partials offer several benefits for those with missing teeth. They improve chewing function, speech clarity, and the smile’s appearance. They also help to maintain facial structure and prevent sagging or sunken cheeks that often occur with missing teeth, though over time, due to bone loss, this may still happen. Drs. Behshad Ahkami and Steven Reff may suggest to patients the benefits of all-on-4 dental implants, which use implants along the arch to stabilize full dentures while maintaining the natural bone underneath the gum line. A consultation appointment is the best way to decide which type of restoration is best for filling in the gaps within the smile with quality false teeth.
