Full & Partial Dentures in Henderson
A smile just isn't a smile if it's incomplete. Missing teeth can cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating to low self-confidence to jawbone deterioration. Don't give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made full and partial dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever.
What is a Partial?
A partial denture, commonly referred to as simply a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather spread across the base to replace teeth wherever they are missing. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.
What is a Denture?
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Traditional dentures and partials can be secured with clasps, adhesives, or natural suction. If you'd like to eliminate the chance of slippage, then an implant-supported denture or partial may be the right solution for you. Dr. Brett Noorda places dental implants into the jawbone, and your denture or partial snaps into place. With an implant-supported denture or partial, your replacement teeth will look, function, and feel more natural than ever before.
