Beautiful dentures from your Putney dentist

The loss of teeth can be devastating. There are a variety of reasons that it happens; trauma, cavities, and gum disease are the most common reasons patients end up needing dentures. Thanks to the advances in dentistry more patients are keeping their natural teeth longer, but more than a ΒΌ of patients will need dentures by age 74.

The team here at Gentle Dental Putney offer our patients several different options for replacing missing teeth. These include partial dentures, complete dentures, and implant supported dentures.

Partial dentures

Patients who are missing one tooth or a few teeth may prefer dental implants or a fixed dental bridge to restore their smiles. In cases where several teeth are missing a partial denture enables patients to speak clearly, chew food thoroughly, and restore the aesthetics of the smile. Your doctor will discuss your options with you and help you decide what is best for your individual needs.

Complete dentures

When all teeth in one or both jaws must be extracted, complete (sometimes called full or classic) dentures can restore your smile and ability to eat most foods and speak clearly. Complete dentures rest on the gums using suction to keep them in place. Some patients prefer to use denture adhesive to keep them from slipping.

Overdentures

These are sometime called implant supported or stabilized dentures. During a simple procedure your doctor here at Gentle Dental Putney will place the implants. These will be topped with special abutments that correspond with fittings in your denture. Overdentures provide patients with the ultimate stability as they can eat foods that they could not with complete dentures and do not have to worry about them slipping. Many patients say that the freedom overdentures provide them it is like having their natural teeth again.
