For patients missing all or several adjoining teeth, Dr. Jone can replace them with dentures. Depending on the number and location of the missing teeth, the dentures could be either full or implant-supported dentures, or single-tooth dental implants.
Partial dentures bridge the space between two remaining teeth that will be crowned, with artificial teeth cemented between them for a secure, long-lasting and more natural looking smile. Partial dentures offer an alternative to conventional dentures when conditions make it possible to use dental implants to bridge missing teeth. Ask our Pacific Sky Dental team which is best for you or if you have any questions about any of our dental treatments.
Full or complete dentures are for replacing all of the patient’s teeth. Immediate dentures are made to replace the missing teeth during the healing process of the gums, so the patient is never without the use of their teeth. As the gums heal and the natural shape of the mouth returns, a permanent set of dentures is then made to replace the immediate dentures.
When there are several adjoining teeth missing, partial dentures can be used to replace them. These are artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base that will anchor the dentures in the mouth via a metal framework. The partial dentures are used when two or more remaining teeth are crowned to provide the bridge for the partial dentures to span. A partial denture offers the ease and convenience of clicking into place and providing greater comfort and security than conventional dentures.
