Dentures have already helped millions of people gain back their confidence of missing teeth over several years. While dentures may seem like an old-fashioned way to restore smile’s, innovations in the dental field have allowed for more durable and comfortable appliances. Continue reading on to see how our team at My STL Dentist in Sunset Hills can help to bring back your confidence.
What are dentures? Dentures are made up of several replacement teeth. These replacement teeth can be made out of materials such as acrylic resin and plastic. Materials such as these are durable and long lasting while they mimic the appearance and feel of natural teeth. They are held together with a ‘gum like’ base.
What are partials? Partials are similar to dentures, with the exception they can be used for more situations. Partials mimic one individual missing tooth, while dentures replace a whole row of teeth. They are made out of the same materials as dentures.
For more security, our team may recommend dental implant retained dentures or partials. This method instills the help of titanium rods that are surgically placed in the jaw bone by our experienced dentist in Sunset Hills. They mimic the tooth’s root and provide a long term solution to missing teeth. The dentures or partials are placed on top of the dental implant after sufficient time is left for the healing period. It is also easier to take care of, since they are just like the natural teeth. You can look after them as you would the rest of your smile. Talk with your dentist about this option during your consultation!
