Are you missing full arches of teeth? Do you have removable dentures that slip?
At Seaside Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer full and partial dentures to patients in Hampstead, NC. Dr. Michael Weis works with his patients to find the best type of denture for their needs. Dentures are dental restorations used to restore multiple missing teeth or even full arches of lost teeth. Restoring missing or lost teeth with full or partial dentures helps to not only improve the appearance of the smile but also to retain the function of the bite.
Different Types of Dentures
Full dentures replace arches of missing teeth. Partial dentures benefit patients with multiple missing teeth and are also called dental bridges. Traditionally, full or complete dentures require adhesives to stay in the mouth. Both full and partial dentures are made of prosthetic teeth attached to a framework. Although dentures may also be fixed or removable, our team recommends fixed dentures because they provide long-term benefits. Traditional removable dentures can move around the mouth, which restricts speech and can make it difficult to eat. They also require messy adhesives to stay in place. We can replace many or all of the teeth in one single arch with fixed dentures. Fixed dentures provide more stability and durability than removable dentures.
Treatment with Dentures
Before restorative treatment, Dr. Weis always ensures that his patients are in good oral and physical health. He can provide treatments to remove infection and thoroughly clean the mouth. Then, Dr. Weis takes impressions of the teeth and gums. These impressions are sent to a dental lab, where custom dentures are created. Once complete, Dr. Weis ensures that the dentures fit properly and feel comfortable in the mouth. He will also instruct you on how to properly care for your new restoration.
