Restoring Edison Smiles with Full & Partial Dentures
When you have missing teeth, your smile and your overall well-being will be negatively impacted. You may find, for instance, that you have some difficulty eating certain foods or with speaking. You may also find that your self-esteem has suffered. These are discouraging changes - no doubt about it - but you should know that there is hope for your smile. As dentistry changes, it's possible for Edison dentists, Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld, to provide Edison-area patients with dentures that are more lifelike and comfortable than ever before.
Comprehensive Denture Options
At our Edison dental office, we offer a comprehensive selection of denture options. Our restorative dental options include partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures. Keep reading to learn more about each type.
Partial dentures, which are often just called partials, are made up of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. Because they're designed to replace multiple teeth, the replacement teeth are typically spread out across this base instead of falling in a row. What's more, partials are removable and are held in place with simple clips or brackets.
As with a partial, a full denture features replacement teeth on a gum colored base. The most obvious difference, though, is that a full denture replaces an entire top or bottom row of teeth. The other major difference between a partial and a full denture is that a full denture is held in place by natural suction or a denture adhesive.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
As an alternative to traditional partial dentures and full dentures, patients of Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld can also find out about implant-supported partial or full dentures. Implant-support dentures can provide patients with results that are more natural and more permanent.
