While dentures are a solution for replacement of missing teeth, preserving natural teeth whenever possible is always the best approach. If all of a patient's teeth are lost at an early age, this can result in serious and costly oral health problems in later years.

Dentures & Partials

When a tooth is lost due to disease or trauma, in most cases, it is important to replace it to protect your bite and preserve healthy jaw bone support.

Dr. Zanthos may recommend a bridge or dental implant to replace missing teeth in a small area, or, if multiple teeth are lost, he may recommend a partial or complete denture.

Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture typically has clasps that rest on natural teeth to secure a rigid metal platform or flexible acrylic base (Valplast® partials) mounted with "false" teeth to take the place of missing teeth.

Complete Dentures
Complete dentures replace all of the teeth in an arch. They are made of solid acrylic plastic to resemble natural gum tissue and teeth. In some cases, porcelain or metal materials may be used in a complete denture.

Implant-Supported Dentures
If your dentures are uncomfortable or loose and denture adhesive is a nuisance, an implant-supported denture may be a great option for you.
