There are many reasons people experience permanent tooth loss. Damage, disease, natural tooth loss, or even personal choice can result in missing teeth. No matter the reason, the missing teeth need replacement, both for appearances and for the vital role they play in chewing, eating, and talking.
Tawas Bay Dental offers both full and partial dentures. Full dentures will replace an entire set of teeth (upper, lower, or both), and a partial denture replaces a span of lost teeth, filling only the empty spaces.
Full or complete dentures are custom-made from molds and impressions of your mouth in order to provide a snug and comfortable fit. The dentures look like natural teeth and are carefully positioned to look natural. Dentures are removable, and so may require some adjustments in order to fit your mouth perfectly. However, once the optimal fit is achieved, dentures are long-lasting and reliable.
Partial dentures are similarly constructed, but replace only the missing teeth and use the surrounding teeth to anchor the plate in the mouth. It’s even possible to have a fixed partial denture, in which the replacement teeth are attached to the others in the mouth. Either way, the spaces in the mouth are filled, and the remaining teeth are supported by the appliance so they don’t move in the jaw.
Whether you’re in need of a partial denture or a complete set, make Tawas Bay Dental your first stop. We’ll help you decide what’s best for you, and get you smiling again.
