Dentures and partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. In many cases, dentures or partial dentures are an option that will enable patients to eat, speak, smile, and live a more normal and active life!
Dentures used to be considered something only elderly and people in bad health needed. However, you may be surprised to learn that people of all ages and walks of life – famous athletes, politicians, celebrities and everyday people – who have lost too many teeth due to injury or disease have replaced their missing teeth and smiles with dentures or partials.
There are two main varieties of dentures:
- Complete dentures. Either “conventional” or “immediate,” complete dentures replace all of your teeth and provide support for facial muscles and cheeks.
- Partials. To replace missing teeth, partials attach to your natural teeth, preventing the natural teeth from shifting.
Timberview Family Dentistry in Oklahoma City uses the latest technology to create dentures and partials that look natural and make it easier to eat, speak and smile confidently. Dentures may take time to adjust to, but as long as you practice good oral hygiene, they should help you enjoy a much happier and healthier mouth and life!
