What types of dentures are available by a Farmington Hills, MI dental practice?


By
Maintaining a healthy smile is easier than ever with the assistance of a quality dental team and daily brushing and flossing. However, there are situations that may occur which leave patients with a less than perfect smile. Trauma, disease, and extraction may be the cause of lost natural teeth. Restoring the smile may seem like a daunting task, but a cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Bernstein of Farmington Hills, MI can help patients determine the best restoration for their smile. When patients are seeking a temporary, removable, or affordable solution, Dr. Bernstein will often suggest dentures.

There are many types of dentures, fixed, partial, and implant-supported varieties.

Full

Full cosmetic dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They include not only false teeth but false gums made from high-quality acrylics. They stay in place with suction or dental adhesives, and are much more affordable than placing a dental implant for every tooth lost. These are removable, which makes them easy to clean and care for.

Partial

Partial dentures restore one or more teeth within an arch. They use a metal and acrylic framework to fit over the dental arch to stay in place, and they have false teeth that fit into the areas where natural teeth are missing. They are removable and affordable solutions.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Even the best-fitted dentures can slip and slide in place, causing patients to experience irritation and discomfort. When patients with full dentures no longer want to deal with dental adhesives and ill-fitting restorations, they may speak to Dr. Bernstein about the possibility of having implant-supported dentures. These dentures are full dentures that are made to fit over several dental implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone. These can hold the dentures firmly in place, providing unsurpassed strength and stability.

Dr. Bernstein and his team of professionals are happy to provide patients with several options when it comes to restoring their smile after tooth loss. Whether patients choose dentures, dental implants, or dental bridges, Dr. Bernstein can guide them with the knowledge they need to make an educated decision regarding the appearance and functionality of their smile after restoration.
