Am I a candidate for full or partial dentures?
Full dentures are used when all teeth in an arch (upper, lower, or both) are missing. Partial dentures placed at our Tucson dental office are appropriate when you still have most of your natural teeth.
Where a full upper denture consists of a plate and a complete set of artificial teeth, partial dentures are made to fit in with your remaining teeth. Let’s say you're missing all teeth except molars. We can create a partial denture that leaves space for the remaining molars and includes replacement teeth for those that are missing. In this case, the partial would attach securely to the molars with a metal clasp.
If you’re concerned that your partial dentures Tucson will look unnatural, we can put your fears to rest! Thanks to some significant advances in dental materials over the years, we can now work with our lab to create natural-looking partials that actually enhance the appearance of your smile!
We’ll talk to you about your expectations so that you’re thrilled with the final result. Not only will you smile again with confidence, but a set of partial dentures can do wonders for filling out your face and eliminating a sunken appearance.
If you are tired of living with missing teeth, please call our office. Whether you need partials or a complete set of dentures, we’ll discuss your needs and help you choose the option that’s just right for you.
