Missing multiple teeth? Enough that your way of life has been severely interrupted? Then dentures from our caring and professional dental team is the solution you’ve been looking for!
We need our teeth to survive—physically and emotionally. Teeth not only help us eat our food, they also enable us to communicate with one another, verbally and otherwise. A beautiful set of teeth and a beautiful smile can say a lot where words can’t. If you’re struggling with multiple missing teeth, let us help you change that.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices created to replace missing teeth. They are supported by the soft and hard tissues of the mouth and crafted to fit your individual needs.
Dentures at Hollywood Family Dentistry
You’ve likely heard of or have an image in your mind of dentures as those removable sets of teeth an old uncle, aunt, or grandparent has. And it’s true that traditional dentures are removable. However, we offer several kinds of dentures at our dental practice that range in terms of permanence, including:
- Removable | Removable, as the name implies, refers to any type of denture that can be taken out at night. During the day, removable dentures can be secured to your gums by dental implants or through the use of denture adhesive.
- Partial | Partial dentures are perfect for patients missing most, but not all, of their teeth who might just need a few gaps here and there filled. Partial dentures are commonly attached to a gum-colored base with the prosthetics attached with wires, and they can be taken out at the end of the day, just like traditional dentures.
- Traditional | Traditional dentures are full sets of teeth held in place in the mouth through the use of an adhesive substance. When in place, they can be used to communicate and eat, just like normal teeth.
- Implant-Supported | Implant-supported dentures are a more permanent solution to the problem of missing multiple teeth. Instead of being held in place with dental adhesive material, these types of dentures are attached by anchoring the dentures in place on dental implants placed strategically throughout the mouth.
