Missing teeth or teeth that are severely broken can be both painful and embarrassing. Fortunately, there are many different options to replace several or all of your teeth. Dentures and partials can be a good option for many patients.
Dr. Sinick and the team at Sinick Family Dental want you to get back to enjoying your favorite foods, but most importantly, we want you to be able to smile again. A quality denture or partial can give you the confidence you need to eat or smile in public. We would love to help you get back to that point.
If you have only a few teeth missing, a partial may be a good solution for you. Partials can replace multiple teeth at once. They can have either a metal or plastic framework and clasps that wrap around your remaining teeth. This helps to keep the partial in place.
Partials come in and out and should be removed every evening before you go to sleep. With a partial, you should be able to chew, but it will never be the same as chewing on your natural teeth or even on something permanent like a bridge or implant.
For centuries, it was normal for most adults to not have any teeth and to have a set of dentures made. George Washington even had a set of dentures where the teeth were wooden. A lot has changed since George Washington’s dentures!
Our modern dentures have acrylic teeth and “gums.” They look like natural teeth. You will be able to chew with your denture, but it is very different than chewing with your own teeth or even a partial.
If your partials or dentures move, we have a great solution for you. We can make you a new denture or partial, andt we can use implants to help lock it in place. This means your denture will not move like it used to. This is a really big deal, especially with lower dentures.
An implant-supported denture works much better than a typical denture. It is like comparing apples and oranges. Dr. Sinick and his staff will help guide you through all the options so that you know what your choices are.
