Multiple missing teeth are a problem faced by millions of Americans, and for many of them, they also have to deal with uncomfortable and unreliable dentures they can’t trust to stay in place. At Tindal Prosthodontics, we can completely solve both problems using our custom-made dentures. Modern-day dentures are more comfortable, natural-looking, and durable than ever, and with one designed by a certified prosthodontist like Dr. Tindal, they can make it feel like your teeth never went missing.
We can provide all manner of dentures to reverse any degree of tooth loss. Partial dentures are designed to replace multiple teeth along a single arch, whether they are consecutive or not, and full dentures can help a patient who is missing an entire row of teeth. In any case, Dr. Tindal will make sure you leave our office with a dental prosthetic you can trust to look and feel great for many years to come. He can even provide implant-retained dentures so patients can enjoy the most stable and secure fit possible.
Our dentures are designed to improve a person’s appearance, oral health, and quality of life at the same time, and that’s exactly what they can do for you. To learn more about your denture options with us, contact us today.
A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth — either the upper arch or the lower arch. It has a gum-colored base that attaches to your gums via natural suction or with the help of a mild denture adhesive. The teeth that go on top of the base may be made either of acrylic or porcelain; both materials are durable and natural-looking. The fit of your full denture may change over time, so we encourage you to visit us for periodic adjustments.
As its name implies, an implant-retained denture gains its support from four to six implants that are placed within the jawbone rather than from natural suction or adhesive. Therefore, it is the sturdiest way to treat extensive tooth loss. Also, because the implants bond with the bone around them, they can prevent your jaw from deteriorating and changing shape. This may enable your dentures to last for several decades.
A partial denture replaces multiple teeth throughout an arch, even if the missing teeth are not adjacent to one another. You can think of this type of prosthesis as a puzzle piece; it may be an odd shape, but it fits in exactly where it is needed. In addition to preventing your remaining naturel teeth from drifting out of place, a partial denture can restore your smile’s appearance and improve your ability to chew. It may require clips or other attachments to keep it secure in the mouth.
