Full & Partial Dentures Sun City From Your Trusted Dentist At Dental Associates of Florida
To replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue, most people use removable prosthetics called dentures. Depending on the severity of the case, your Sun City dentist may suggest either complete dentures or partial dentures. Both types of dentures can be made either permanent or removable.
There is a major difference between a set of complete dentures and partial dentures. When all of the upper, lower or both sets of teeth need to be replaced, complete dentures are needed. There are also two methods for full dentures, standard dentures or immediate dentures. In the immediate method, the dentures are created prior to tooth extraction and can immediately be placed on once they are removed. In the standard method, the dentures are created after the extraction and are ready to wear eight to twelve weeks following the procedure. The downside of immediate dentures is that ultimately, several adjustments will likely need to be made for the ideal fit.
Partial dentures, as well as full dentures in Sun City can be permanently attached to a tooth implant. No matter which method you choose partial dentures or complete dentures, the improved oral heath benefits include:
- Decelerated bone loss
- Facial support
- Improved speech
- Easier chewing
Connected by a metal framework, partial dentures are made up of one or more teeth that need to be replaced. The dentures have a plastic base and are used to fill in spaces where teeth are missing.
