When someone loses all of their teeth in one or more jaws they typically require a full denture. This is probably one of the most simple ways to replace all teeth in a jaw but necessarily one of the most comfortable. Dentures reside on gum tissues and can cause a wide variety of irritations. Today, there is another alternative using dental implants. More on this on another page….
When only one or more teeth are missing, but there are existing teeth to use for anchoring the prosthesis, there are other options. One of them is to use a partial denture. These device typically have metal or plastic hooks to help anchor the partial denture to the remaining teeth. There are issues, however, with partial dentures since they do put pressure on the natural teeth anchoring the new device. Care must be taken to make sure that the prosthesis is maintained properly to avoid undue pressure on the anchoring teeth.
Additional Replacement Options:
Very often dental implants can be used to help avoid the need for either full or partial dentures. If there are enough natural teeth it is also possible to use cemented in bridges instead. For more information please give us a call. 516 741-1230.
