Smile again with dentures & partials from your Colombia, MO Dentist
Dentures and partials are removable restorations for missing teeth. Unlike dental implants which fuse with the jawbone, denture can be removed at any time for cleaning or sleeping. At the office of Chase Patton D.D.S., we offer several different types of dentures and partials for individuals who are missing teeth. High quality dentures are an affordable and natural-looking way to restore both functionality and aesthetics to the smile.
Full dentures are designed for patients who are missing all the teeth in the upper or lower arch, or both. They give individuals back the ability to eat and speak and restore self-confidence that can often disappear after complete tooth loss.
As the name implies, immediate dentures are placed directly following the removal of natural teeth. Patients who opt for immediate dentures will never have to live without teeth. It is important to note that the shape of the gum and jawbone will change following tooth removal, so patients will typically need a new set of dentures after the healing process.
Conventional dentures are made and placed once the bones and jawbone have healed following extraction. This varies by individuals but is usually around three to four weeks.
For individuals who are only missing a few teeth and still retain most of their natural teeth, partials are an affordable alternative to bridges or dental implants. These removable appliances are secured in place by natural teeth and the gums.
For individuals who are interested in a more permanent solution, there are dental implants. While we do not place dental implants at the office of Chase Patton D.DS., we are able to refer you to a specialist. We do offer dental implant restoration.
