Dentures are a popular and reliable solution for missing teeth. At Dental Horizons in Longmont, our team is proud to offer both full and partial dentures to meet the tooth-replacement needs of our patients.
What are full & partial dentures?
Dentures are prosthetics that replace one or more missing teeth. Full dentures replace all the teeth in one dental arch and are held in place through suction or a special denture adhesive. Partial dentures are used when a few adjacent teeth are missing or when nearby teeth cannot support a bridge. The denture is made up of one or more artificial teeth and is often secured by clasps that attach to existing teeth.
What are the benefits of full and partial dentures?
Dentures not only improve the appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence, but they also provide many other important benefits. They can help you maintain a healthy diet by making it easier to chew your food, aiding in the digestive process. They also support facial muscles that tend to sag when teeth are missing, and help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
Who is a good candidate for dentures?
Most patients who have lost one, many, or all of their teeth may benefit from full or partial dentures. Our experienced team at Dental Horizons will be happy to assess your needs and recommend the best solution to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
