Dr. John L. Aurelia of Rochester Hills, MI helps patients achieve the smile of their dreams. For patients who have dealt with tooth loss, dentures are a common solution. Dentures provide an economical method of repair for many of our patients. There are several types of dentures provided including “snap-in” partial dentures and full dentures.
Partial dentures, sometimes referred to as “snap-in dentures,” are a special type of false teeth. Patients missing one or more teeth within the arch can use a partial denture to repair the smile. The denture is made of a metal and acrylic framework and snaps into the dental arch in the same way a retainer does. Patients can take them out to clean them and care for them, and put them in as needed. These dentures have false teeth called pontics that slide into place where teeth once were.
Many patients love the ease of use with snap-in dentures. Partial dentures do not require patients to remove their existing healthy teeth to use them, and provide patients with an affordable option when compared to alternative treatments such as dental implants and bridges.
If you have considered the benefits of using restorations such as snap-in dentures, we encourage you to take the time to speak with a dental professional about this and other options for smile repair. Partial dentures are used for many patients who are seeking an economical solution to their tooth loss. Call (248) 243-6044 or speak to a team member at our practice conveniently located at 804 N.
