How Georgetown, TX area patients can care for their removable dentures
At 4405 Dental Studio, patients in and around the area of Georgetown, TX can learn about a wide range of restorations used to achieve full functionality of the smile after tooth loss. One of the more popular and economic options is the removable denture. Our patients find that the removable denture may be the best solution for their tooth loss.
What is a removable denture?
There are two types of removable dentures – full dentures and partial dentures:
- Full denture – a full denture is a way to restore the function and appearance of the smile when an entire arch of teeth is missing. The full denture is made of acrylic and is used on the upper and/or lower arch to replace teeth. When patients use a full denture, they may keep it in place with natural suction or denture adhesives. If patients have enough bone structure, they may consider placing dental implants to hold the full denture in place.
- Partial denture – another option is the partial denture. A partial denture is made of a metal and acrylic framework. It snaps in place and puts false teeth where teeth are missing. This may be one or more teeth within the dental arch. The partial denture is also easily removable for simple care and cleaning. It uses the existing teeth as a foundation for the denture to snap in place and can be adjusted as needed to ensure a proper fit.
Which tooth replacement option is right for me?
With continued advances in dentistry, patients now have more options than ever when it comes to restoring their smile after tooth loss or extraction. While full and partial dentures may be a good solution for one patient, they may not be the best for another. During a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with Dr. Andrew Edmonds, patients can learn about the options available to them and determine which one is most appropriate for their unique dental needs.
