Are you missing some or all of your natural teeth? Are you soon going to be experiencing an extraction? We have some great tooth replacement options that you should consider. Dentures are designed to replace a portion of or an entire arch of teeth. Let’s talk about the denture options we offer here at Mountain View Dental in Acworth, GA. They have been helping our patients in the areas of Acworth, Kennesaw, Marietta, and Woodstock for years.
Full Removable Dentures
This type is designed to replace an entire arch or an entire mouth of teeth. This type of prosthetic is probably what comes to mind when considering the word “denture.” We create realistic-looking replacement teeth and set them into a gum-colored mold that fits over your gums. The denture is secured into your mouth by a snug fit and denture adhesive.
Partial Removable Dentures
Partial dentures are created much like the full removable, except that they replace only some of your natural teeth. They are also held in place using clasps that attach to surrounding natural teeth instead of just a denture adhesive. This is a good, cost-effective option for someone missing more than one tooth in a row, but not an entire arch.
The Implant-retained type is a full-arch prostheses that work very similarly to removable dentures except that they are anchored into the mouth using dental implants. This prevents the denture from moving around in the mouth and causing unwanted friction. To attach to the implants, this setup uses a series of ball attachment mechanisms. If you are looking for a secure way to replace an entire arch or even an entire mouth full of teeth, this may be a great option for you.
Did you know that we offer temporary options as well? Dentures sometimes take awhile to craft, so we offer immediate ones that can be worn as soon as your teeth have been extracted. This will save you the embarrassment and dysfunction of living without teeth. Talk to our team to find out if temporary dentures are right for you.
