Types of dentures available at the Richard C. Flores, DDS, LLC dental practice
Replacing missing teeth is vital to ensuring the proper appearance and function of the smile. However, many patients are unsure which type of restoration to choose. Based on one’s unique situation, Dr. Rich Flores of Willoughby, Ohio, may suggest the use of dentures. Dentures are a reliable and affordable way for individuals to restore their ability to eat, speak, and smile after tooth loss.
What types of dentures are available at the office of Dr. Flores?
At our practice, we offer a variety of dentures for our patients, including the following for tooth replacement:
- Partial dentures. The partial denture is a wonderful solution for our patients missing one or even several teeth in the dental arch and are seeking a reliable yet economical option. Many of our patients have dental insurance that provides reliable coverage for all or most of the cost of dentures.
- Full dentures. Full dentures also called complete dentures, are used to replace teeth in patients who do not have any remaining teeth or who need teeth removed due to widespread and significant decay and damage. It can be difficult to enjoy your favorite foods without teeth, so using a full acrylic denture is the way to go! We create these dentures to look natural while restoring one’s ability to eat and speak.
- Implant-retained dentures. Patients worried about the retention of traditional complete dentures might want to ask our team about implant-retained dentures. These are stronger dentures held in place with dental implants along the gum line. That is the best way to reduce looseness and improve retention. The implants are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery to create the foundation for a more conservative complete denture. No denture adhesives are needed!
