Many patients have negative associations with dentures, but they have come a long way in the last few decades. Although false teeth used to look unnatural and fake in every way possible, they now appear much more natural and beautiful than ever before. Dr. John L. Aurelia of the Shelby Township area provides patients with high-quality dentures.
There are several different types of dentures available at his practice, and they include:
Partial dentures are used when one or more teeth are missing. They are made with acrylic and metal and they snap into the dental arch using the existing teeth for support. We also have metal-free partial dentures that are highly aesthetic. Partials are removed to allow patients to brush and floss their teeth, as well as tend to the denture itself. Taking good care of the denture is one way to increase its longevity and enjoy the benefits even longer.
These are the most common of dentures. Full cosmetic dentures integrate the gums in addition to false teeth. They are used to cover an entire dental arch in which teeth have been lost or extracted. Patients receiving full cosmetic dentures can work with Dr. John L. Aurelia for assistance in fabricating their dream smile. These full cosmetic dentures are made to patients’ specifications, allowing them to rejuvenate their look with just one restoration!
Patients with full cosmetic dentures who are troubled by the stability, or pain and discomfort while wearing them, may consider alternative solutions such as implant-supported dentures. Unlike traditional full dentures, which use suction and dental adhesives to stay in place, implant-supported dentures snap into place over dental implants that are surgically placed into the bone. This provides patients with much more stability and structure for their dentures and allows them to enjoy their favorite foods without the worry of their dentures slipping out of place or falling out of their mouth.
