What types of dentures are available to Troy community residents?

False teeth have been used for centuries, and benefit patients seeking a way to restore their smiles after tooth loss. Thankfully, dentures have come a long way over time and are now more beautiful and functional than ever.

Whether a patient requires a replacement for just one tooth or an entire arch, the dental team at Dr. John L. Aurelia in the Troy community can help! The practice offers partial dentures and full dentures, the two primary types of restorative prosthetics.

Partial Denture

A partial denture is used when a patient is missing one or more teeth within a dental arch. The gaps may be caused by trauma, extraction, or disease. Missing natural teeth need to be replaced as soon as possible to maintain alignment of remaining teeth and restore functionality for biting and chewing. Partial dentures are a good solution for this situation. They can be removed for cleaning and adjustments, and do not impede the patient’s ability to consider other restoration methods in the future. Made of a metal and plastic framework, a partial snaps into place in the dental arch usually anchored with metal clips to the adjoining teeth. The existing teeth improve stability of the partial denture, so adhesives or implants are not required to hold it in place.

Full Denture

Patients whose mouths have been severely compromised from disease or aging may decide to have their remaining teeth extracted for the placement of a full denture. Complete dentures are made of professional-grade acrylics and recreate the smile with artificial gums and teeth. These are fitted over the bony ridges of the dental arch. They may be held in place with denture adhesives or secured by dental implants for added stability. Full dentures are removable for regular cleaning and inspection. Proper care will extend their lifespan.

Troy area denture patients are encouraged to bring their prosthetics with them when visiting Dr. John L. Aurelia for recall and oral hygiene appointments. Patients can have their dentures adjusted or repaired when necessary, and have the opportunity to speak with the dentist about more permanent alternatives (such as dental implants or crown and bridge units) when appropriate.
