Dentures offer patients with substantial or complete tooth loss a way to regain oral function and a natural looking smile again. Dr. Lason is skilled in properly designing and fitting full dentures and partial dentures to greatly improve your quality of life. Here are some of the benefits of dentures and partials:
Types of Dentures
Dentures come in a few different varieties. The two basic types are full and partial.
A full denture replaces an entire set of missing teeth (upper and lower).
Partial dentures generally fill in a gap of 3 or more teeth where a bridge won’t provide enough support. These prosthetics are typically made of acrylic but can be placed over a metal base for added strength. Newer versions are made of flexible resin, which offers a more comfortable, precise fit for some patients.
