Dentures and Partials
How would it feel to smile with confidence again?
What would it be like to walk into a restaurant and not worry about what you can order?
Dr. Corn wants you to know there is hope, and there are excellent solutions for replacing multiple teeth. Corn Family Dentistry can help you reclaim your smile!
What Are Full Dentures?
A denture is a removable appliance that is typically made of acrylic and designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Today’s dentures look natural, and Dr. Corn takes into consideration details like your skin tone and facial structure when designing your denture in order to deliver a prosthetic that is both esthetically pleasing and highly functional.
A denture relies on a snug and tight fit and suction to stay in place. There’s a learning curve as you’re getting used to talking and eating with your denture, but most patients appreciate how it immediately restores their smile.
Dentures require relining from time to time to ensure they maintain proper fit, so you should continue to see Dr. Corn for your yearly check-ups.
What Is a Partial Denture?
Partial dentures are an excellent option for patients who are missing multiple teeth but also retain several healthy teeth.
A partial uses your healthy teeth to support your prosthetic. Natural-looking synthetic teeth fill in the open spaces like puzzle pieces. Partials can be easily removed at night for cleaning, and they complement your smile while restoring much-needed function for eating and chewing.
Dental implants can be used to support prosthetics such as dentures and partials while offering a more secure fit than ever before, especially for full denture wearers. After strategically placing a few implants into your jawbone, Dr. Corn will design a prosthetic that fits onto the implants and securely holds your denture in place. This ensures that there’s no movement or slippage when you talk or eat.
Whether you need to replace a few missing teeth or restore your entire smile, dental implants can support prosthetics such as dental bridges, partials, or complete dentures. Implants also help to keep your bone stimulated, which protects against deterioration and also ensures the longevity of your prosthetic.
