Many of us have visions of our grandparents struggling with their teeth when we think about dentures. Often, dentures in the past were unnatural looking or ill-fitting.
However, these days, dentures are thoughtfully designed and crafted with your unique facial features and skin tone in mind. As a result, today's dentures fit better and look more natural than ever before. Dentures are also an excellent solution for patients struggling with losing some or all of their teeth.
Here's what you should know if you're living with tooth loss.
Traditional Full and Partial Dentures
If you're missing multiple teeth, full or partial dentures can be an affordable way to restore your smile.
Traditional dentures are removable, and partial dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth, while complete dentures replace an entire arch of lost teeth. Both options help you regain both aesthetics and function for your smile.
We can also use dental implants to support full or partial dentures in Eagan. Dental implants provide support and stability for denture wearers, so there is no movement or slippage when they're talking, laughing, or eating with their new denture.
Dr. Michael designs and customizes full or partial dentures that attach to a few carefully placed implants. The implants secure the full or partial denture and provide a "snap-on" feature so you can remove them when needed.
Implant-supported dentures in Eagan also provide the additional benefit of keeping your jawbone healthy and stimulated, which protects against the deterioration and bone loss that often occurs with traditional removable dentures. This means you'll enjoy excellent longevity with your dentures, making this a more cost-effective option for many patients.
