Dentures & Partials
Dentures in Abington, PA
Dentures and Partial Dentures may be recommended in situations where a patient is missing multiple teeth or are entirely edentulous. Dentures and partials are completely removable unlike bridges and implants. They are made of false teeth set in an acrylic base made to look like the gums. Partial dentures are retained with hardware containing various hooks and bands placed around the teeth to fill the space where teeth once were. Complete dentures utilize ones natural anatomy to create suction and retention.
Implant placement in conjunction with dentures now creates a situation where retention is greatly improved. Implants placed to anchor a complete denture also maintains the bone that would otherwise be resorbed over time. Implant-supported dentures also improve comfort, requiring fewer adjustments, and prevent them from sliding and falling out of position.
Every situation is different but if you would like to find out more about implants and dentures please call (215) 885-0555 today to set up a consultation at McDowell Dental Group in Abington, Jenkintown, Horsham, Willow Grove, and Philadelphia, PA.
