Patients in Yadkinville, NC learn about the types of dentures to replace missing teeth
Do you have gaps from missing teeth? We all want beautiful smiles. Thanks to dental technology, that is a possibility for everyone. Dentures now give patients back their natural smiles. Dr. William Virtue of Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville, NC offers dentures as part of his general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry practice.
A denture for every patient
Every patient is unique. Different dental issues, lifestyles, and finances equate to needing a variety of denture options. During your initial consultation with Dr. Virtue, the two of you will discuss your personal needs and the types of dentures available. The dentures available include full, partial and implant-supported.
- Full dentures – Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, upper, lower or both. The cosmetically created teeth and gums fit into the mouth and stay in place using suction, adhesive or dental implants. The dentures are removable, easy to clean, and affordable.
- Partial dentures – Partial dentures only replace some of the teeth. They are ideal for patients who are missing a few teeth. The remaining teeth support the denture. Clasps attach the denture to the remaining teeth which provide the support for the structure.
- Implant-supported dentures – Implant-supported dentures are used to replace a missing tooth with an implant which connects to the jawbone. The denture can then be attached to the implant providing more security and stability for the denture.
Dentures have many benefits. Cosmetically, they fill out your face helping you look younger and natural. Patients can speak more clearly and can eat better. Because there are different options, dentures are accessible and affordable.
