Full & Partial Dentures
When you live with tooth loss, you can no longer smile confidently due to the empty spaces while you also struggle with chewing many of your favorite foods. Over time, this can lead to nutritional deficiencies while you also develop difficulty speaking clearly. However, your dental health will also start to decline as any remaining natural teeth lose the support they need to stay in place. This increases your risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss in the future. While you have probably considered dentures in the past, they tend to have a bad reputation for looking fake. Now, new advancements allow them to look more natural than ever before while restoring your quality of life and dental health. As your dentist in Cary, Dr. Darren Koch offers partial and complete dentures to give you a confident smile.
Benefit from a Convenient Approach to Dentures
Dentures remain one of the most popular solutions to replace missing teeth because they are affordable and convenient. In just a couple of appointments, you will have natural-looking prosthetic teeth to give you a complete smile.
Now, they look more like real teeth so no one will be able to tell that they are not your own. Using the most advanced dental technologies, you benefit from enhanced comfort and function by gaining a secure fit so you can chew and speak without having to worry about slipping or irritation.
Depending on your severity of tooth loss, partial or full dentures may be right for you. Your Cary dentist, Dr. Koch, will perform a consultation to discuss your options for a complete smile.
If you have several teeth missing in a row, you may be a candidate for partial dentures. Custom-made prosthetics are attached to a gum colored base that features a metal framework. This is then fitted over your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place. This will fill the empty space while also providing your teeth with the support they need to stay in place to protect your dental health.
When you are suffering from tooth loss, you will require full dentures. The prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum colored base, which is created using impressions of your mouth. This ensures the proper fit to enhance your comfort and the function of the prosthetics. A denture adhesive is then used to hold them in place to allow you to eat your favorite foods while also speaking and smiling without any concern.

Dentures have been one of the most common solutions to replace missing teeth for well over 100 years because they are convenient and affordable. Due to several advancements, you do not have to worry about slipping, irritation or discomfort. In addition, implant-supported dentures are also available for those who are a candidate.
