Are you missing full arches of teeth? Do you have removable dentures that slip?
Our office offers 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 retain the function of the bite as well as
Partial vs. Full Dentures
Full dentures replace arches of missing teeth. Traditionally, full or complete dentures require adhesives or snaps to stay in the mouth. However, snap-on dentures and dentures that require adhesives do not fully retain the bite. Partial dentures benefit patients with multiple missing teeth. They are traditionally made of prosthetic teeth attached to a framework. Our team recommends implant-secured dentures because they provide long-term benefits. Implants can be used to secure both full or partial dentures.
Dentures and Implants
Dental implants provide a more stable restoration when attached to full or partial dentures. Implants are a permanent solution that offers over a 95% success rate. They also prevent dentures from slipping around in the mouth. Traditional dentures can move around the mouth, which restricts speech and can make it difficult to eat. Dentures also come with dietary restrictions.
Alternatively, dental implants replace teeth at the root, preventing bone loss and making it easy to enjoy all types of foods. Implant-supported dentures can replace many or all of the teeth in one single arch. Four to eight dental implants are used to secure each arch. With dental implants, dentures offer far more benefits and last for many years to come without the need for regular repairs.
