Kingston, PA dentist recommends dentures as options for tooth replacement
Patients of Kingston, PA who are missing teeth may want to consider treatment with dentures. There are a wide variety of options for patients to choose from when considering tooth replacement, including implants and bridges. But for many of our patients at Lawrence Dental Group, dentures are an affordable and effective way of replacing all the teeth in the dental arch.
Types of dentures
- Partial dentures – a partial denture is utilized by patients with minor tooth loss to replace one or several teeth in the dental arch. These metal appliances snap into the smile using the remaining teeth for support. They are easy to remove and simple to care.
- Full dentures – the common full denture is the one reminiscent of one’s grandparents. It is a set of false teeth that includes fake teeth and gums. The denture is held in place with natural suction or the use of denture adhesives. The full denture replaces an entire arch of teeth on the top and/or bottom of the jaw.
- Implant-retained dentures – patients missing all their teeth may find relief from traditional dentures with the use of implant-retained dentures. These are dentures that use a conservative appliance of false teeth that snap into place with three to four dental implants placed along the dental arch. This is the sturdiest, strongest solution for replacing all the teeth in the smile, and continues to be a highly recommended solution for those seeking a more naturally functioning smile.
