Dentures are a common solution for replacing multiple missing teeth. We may recommend dentures if you are missing several teeth or all of the natural teeth. Dentures are removable oral appliances, meaning that they can be removed multiple times per day for cleaning. There are two main types of dentures, full dentures and partial dentures. Full (complete) dentures are used to restore your smile if you are missing all of the teeth in the upper or lower arch, or both. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used if you are missing multiple teeth and some natural teeth remain. Dentures are created to look just like your natural teeth and gum tissue, so your smile will look beautiful and feel natural.
Dr. Perpich and Dr. Carlson, our experienced dentists, may recommend dentures to restore your smile by:
- Improving your facial shape and volume
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as usual
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
Partial dentures can also be used to prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting into the space left by the missing teeth. For more information on dentures in Stillwater, Minnesota, we welcome you to contact us at Stillwater Family Dental soon.
