Redlands, CA area patients seeking treatment for missing teeth are often encouraged to consider dentures. Thinking of dentures brings to mind unsightly, unnatural restorations from the time of our grandparents. Thanks to continued advances in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, these dentures are no longer the standard. Dr. Terry Vines and the team of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry provide quality dentures for patients seeking beautiful restoration of the appearance and function of their smiles.
TYPES OF DENTURES
Two types of dentures exist for restoration of the smile – partial and full. When a patient is missing a single tooth, or several teeth within the dental arch, they can use a partial to restore the smile. A partial is fabricated with metal and acrylic framework paired with false teeth called pontics. The partial denture slides into place in the dental arch using support of the existing teeth. A full denture is used in a different manner. This restoration is fully acrylic and includes false gums as well as false teeth. The denture is used to replace all the teeth in the dental arch. It may be held in place using natural suction, over-the-counter dental adhesives, or dental implants.
