Dentures & Partial Dentures
Your Simple Solution to Missing Teeth
Are you missing teeth throughout your mouth or even an entire row? If so, you probably know about all of the problems this can cause. In addition to making you severely self-conscious, missing teeth can also make it much harder for you to simply eat and speak. This can really impact the quality of your life and affect your overall health as well. People with missing teeth often have to limit their food choices, and over time, this can deny them the essential nutrition their body needs and lead to a much shorter life.
To prevent these problems and help you smile with ease again, Dr. Sam DK Kim and our team can provide you with partial and full dentures. Thanks to modern technology, dentures are now one of the quickest, easiest, and most effective ways we can rebuild your smile.
How Dentures Can Help
Missing teeth can cause a whole host of dental problems that can eventually impact a person’s overall health. Often, the remaining teeth will drift into the gaps, and this can cause the teeth to become crowded and crooked. Also, the exposed gum tissue is more vulnerable to gum disease, which in itself is one of the leading causes of tooth loss! Dentures can prevent both of these problems while helping people restore their natural appearance and preserve their health for years to come.
The Types of Dentures
At SDK Dental Care, we offer a few different kinds of dentures:
- Partial Dentures: These are composed of prosthetic teeth attached to a natural-looking gum-colored base, and they can be used to replace multiple missing teeth throughout the mouth. They basically fit among the remaining teeth like a piece of a puzzle. They are typically held in place using small metal clasps, and they are easily removable for simple cleaning and maintenance.
- Full Dentures: These can be used to replace an entire row of missing teeth. They are also comprised of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and they are usually held in place using natural suction and denture adhesive.
- Implant-Retained Dentures: This can refer to partial or full dentures that are held in place using dental implants. These offer many additional long term health benefits compared to traditional dentures, and you can learn more about them right here.
