When Is The Right Time For Dentures?

Losing multiple teeth is devastating, and it dramatically impacts the quality of your life. Not only because you can’t chew or eat your food comfortably any longer, but also because you may feel embarrassed about how your smile looks.

The good news is that there are excellent solutions for restoring your smile, even if you are missing most of your teeth. A partial or complete denture in Portland may be just what you need to reclaim your smile and your life again!

What Is a Partial Denture?

If you’ve lost multiple teeth, but still have a few healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture may be right for you. A partial uses artificial teeth attached to a removable appliance that fits much like a retainer and anchors with clasps to your healthy teeth. This is an excellent solution for filling gaps and spaces in your smile and restoring your function for eating and chewing.

What Is a Full Denture?

If it’s time to restore all of your teeth, a full denture can do the job. Made of acrylic and designed with the shape of your face and tone of your skin in mind for a natural and appealing look, today’s dentures fit, feel, and look better than ever before.

Traditional dentures are removable appliances; however, dental implants can also be used to support a denture and provide a more secure and stable fit. Not only does a dental implant ensure that you don’t have to endure movement or slippage of your denture, but it also protects your jawbone by keeping it stimulated, so it doesn’t deteriorate. Choosing dental implants means you’ll have better longevity with your appliance.
