Dentures and Partials
Although modern dentistry has eliminated many of the disadvantages commonly associated with dentures, there are some concerns patients should be aware of when considering dentures as a treatment option. Dentures must be removed and cleaned regularly to avoid infections or disease, including bad breath. Cheap or improperly fit dentures may be uncomfortable and can move around in the mouth, causing pain and chewing difficulties. It is important to maintain regular periodic visits with your dentist.
In the past, dentures were made primarily for chewing, but our modern dentures are designed to be comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully functional. During the fitting process, Dr. Glasscock ensures your dentures will sit properly with minimal slipping so that you can feel confident during daily activities like chewing and talking.
Dentures are available in several different types, including full or partial sets. Full dentures are ideal for patients who have lost most of their teeth, while partial dentures are useful for filling in gaps of several missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who want a durable, non-removable denture.
Our top-quality dentures are available in natural-looking porcelain or plastic materials for smile-beautifying results.
Dentures support facial muscles and structures and decrease oral bone loss. Dentures have also been shown to improve self-esteem in patients.
