Have you lost some or all of your teeth due to damage or disease? If so, Dr. Erich Trumm may recommend that you receive dentures, which are removable dental appliances designed to restore and beautify your smile. Advancements in dentistry have resulted in three types of dentures to replace tooth loss, which are:
– Full dentures: This is the most well-known type of denture, and it’s generally recommended for patients who have full tooth loss. If you are looking to replace a full set of missing teeth, you may find that this removable appliance is ideal for your situation. Conventional dentures have a pink foundation that looks like gums and is set with false teeth. The denture is placed over your gums and uses suction to attach to the roof of your mouth and remain secure.
– Partial dentures: A partial denture is helpful for those who have a few missing teeth but they still have remaining natural teeth. We can place this appliance in the empty space in your mouth where teeth were lost and then clasp it to the neighboring teeth on either side. By replacing missing teeth with a partial denture, we can improve the appearance of your smile and the function of your bite.
– Implant-supported dentures: If you have lost all or most of your teeth, you may receive an implant-supported denture for results that are permanent and natural-looking. Dental implants support this denture to provide a functional and beautiful smile.
