In the past, dentures were often mass-produced to be one-size-fits-all. This resulted in frequent problems such as slipping, sliding, and the impairment of speech. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. With today’s technology, Tarpon Shores Dental can create full and partial dentures that fit each patient’s unique bite and gums. You’ll be able to eat, drink, and even laugh with confidence. Leave ill-fitting dentures in the past where they belong! Contact Tarpon Shores Dental to receive treatment with full and partial dentures today.
Full dentures can replace all of the teeth along the upper and/or lower gums. They stay in place with the use of natural suction, and at times, even a little dental adhesive. Partials, on the other hand, can be used when some healthy teeth remain. Partial dentures attach to your existing, healthy teeth, and like full dentures, they are removable. While cost-effective, full and partial dentures are not as stable as traditional dental bridges or implant-supported dentures.
Your teeth provide support for your entire face. They serve as the structure your facial muscles need to stay in place. When you begin to lose your teeth, these muscles will sag or droop inward. This creates a drastically older look. You don’t want to seem years ahead of your actual age! Tarpon Shores Dental can fit restorative dentistry patients for full and partial dentures to help them improve their overall appearance.
Full and partial denture can also improve the health of your jawbone! When a tooth is lost, the gum tissue and bone tissue recognize that there is no longer anything to support, so they slowly begin to deteriorate over time. Using a denture, we can help maintain the jaw and slow the appearance of aging.
Tarpon Shores Dental uses full and partial dentures to provide stability to the smiles of patients from St. Armands and the surrounding area. Call us today to schedule your appointment. We can’t wait to help you improve your smile, self-confidence, and the overall function of your mouth.
