Marietta patients ask about full dentures
An entire arch of lost teeth can be devastating to the appearance, health, and function of the mouth. When patients in the Marietta area are dealing with lost teeth due to trauma or disease, they need to speak with a dedicated restorative dentist about repairing their smiles in an effective, affordable manner. Dr. David Lamothe of Smyrna Dental and Implant Center can provide many different methods of restoration including dentures.
Dentures come in two types – full dentures and partial dentures. These dentures, sometimes just referred to as “partials,” are used when patients are missing one tooth, or several, within the dental arch. They will want to achieve restoration with a removable solution that is affordable and so partial dentures often fit the bill. The loss of all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw can be restored using full dentures.
Full dentures are made of acrylic and are customized for patients to rejuvenate their smiles. These restorations can be held in place in one of three ways:
- Natural suction in the mouth
- Dental adhesives
- Dental implants
Dr. David Lamothe can educate patients on whether full dentures are appropriate for their smiles. In many cases, they are the only method of repair when many teeth are lost. Bridges need surrounding teeth for support, and dental implants are much too expensive to replace every tooth.
Dentures are excellent choices for many patients. It is important that patients consult with their dentist to determine which option is best for their specific needs. Many patients will find full dentures to be a great method of repair.
If you live in or around the Marietta area and are interested in finding out more about dentures, contact our team today. We can examine the smile, take x-rays, and work with patients to determine if full dentures are right for them.
