Suffering from lost teeth? At Dr. Ackerman’s, we believe everyone deserves a healthy, functional, and happy smile!
Whether you are missing a few teeth or an entire arch, we can build the perfect denture for you.
Dentures are a great option for people who have lost their natural teeth. These realistic-looking substitutes will help you look and sound better, while also improving your smile! There are two different types of dentures, complete and partial. To find out which option will work best for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ackerman today!
There are many ways to replace missing teeth, and one option is removable partial dentures. These appliances have a metal framework with plastic areas where the gum line lies underneath it, allowing for easy cleaning because you can just rinse off any food particles without worrying about damaging your mouth or lips. The teeth are held in place with clasps that fit around the neighboring natural teeth, and if necessary can be shaped to help keep the denture securely fastened.
If you are missing some teeth, a partial denture is an affordable and less invasive option that will get the job done. Some other benefits of partial dentures are as follows:
- Restoring the ability to bite and chew
- Improved speech and pronunciation
- Enhancing physical features in the face
- Promoting a brighter, happier smile
Full Arch Dentures
A loose fit or slipping dentures can lead not only to discomfort but also potential health problems down the line including gum sores and decreased confidence when speaking publicly. We can help restore that perfect smile with the use of full arch dentures! With advances in materials and technology, full arch dentures are now available to provide the characteristics of your desired tooth shape. These removable replacements can be crafted for you with care so that they fit comfortably during everyday activities like eating or speaking clearly on the phone without pain.
If you are missing the majority of your natural teeth, a full-arch denture can help restore biting and chewing functionality. The process begins by taking impressions of your smile. Then we extract any remaining natural teeth and replace them with the dentures that same day so you can leave the office with your brand new smile!
It is important to follow the set rules when it comes to your new dentures as it will take some time before you become adjusted to them. It may feel awkward to speak or eat for a bit, but with Dr. Ackerman’s guidance, you will be back to smiling and eating the foods you love in no time!
