Why Choose Complete Dentures?
For some patients, tooth replacement can be achieved with a single implant or bridge. However, some patients require a more thorough approach to dental replacement, which can be expensive or impractical when achieved with these devices. In this situation, dentures are often the best choice. If you have extensive dental problems, let Fife Dental Care help you identify the best solution for your needs – including full dentures.
What Are Complete Dentures?
Complete or “full” dentures are a prosthetic replacement for all of your natural teeth. Partial dentures, which replace just some of your teeth, are also available, with both fixed and removable options.
Complete dentures, by contrast, are always removable. They are individually fitted to your mouth and take some adjustment until they can be worn comfortably. Once you have adjusted, quality dentures are generally quite comfortable and can look and feel very much like your natural teeth.
Are Full Dentures Right for You?
One of the primary benefits of full dentures is their affordability. If you have severe periodontal disease or other problems requiring significant tooth replacement, dentures can be a much more affordable solution than other options. Additionally, dentures will work even in cases where loss of bone density has made implants an impossibility. Dentures can also be a time-saving solution for patients who struggle with ongoing dental problems.
However, dentures are not always right for every patient. In many cases, working to save your existing teeth as much as possible is ideal. The best dental solution will vary between individuals, and your dentist can help you decide which option is best for your individual needs and situation.
