Dentures & Partials for Boca Rotan, FL
If you need to replace multiple teeth, you have more to worry about than just the aesthetics of your smile. Over time, tooth loss causes remaining teeth to shift, altering your smile’s alignment. What’s more, missing teeth make eating and speaking more difficult, and contribute to bone loss in the jaw.
For anyone in this situation, you’ll find a solution at Dr. Cuomo’s Boca Raton dental office. With a partial denture or full denture, we preserve your smile’s proper alignment and improve your ability to eat and speak. Your custom-made prosthetic also improves confidence so you can smile openly again.
What Is a Partial Denture?
A partial denture (also known as a partial) is a prosthetic designed to help patients replace multiple teeth. Every partial we provide for our patients is customized and features multiple replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. In most cases, a partial is secured by a clip unless you opt for an implant-supported prosthetic instead.
What Is a Denture?
A full denture is designed to help patients replace a full row of teeth. As with a partial, the replacement teeth used for a full denture are mounted to a gum-colored base that follows your smile’s natural contours. Full dentures come in both closed and open palate versions, and are held in place by natural suction or a denture adhesive.
If you’d like to consider an alternative to traditional dentures, let us talk to you about dentures supported by dental implants. Patients with implant-supported dentures enjoy results that feel much more natural and lifelike because the implant replaces the root of the tooth supporting the prosthetic more naturally. Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. If you’d like to consider this revolutionary option, or you’d like to learn more about traditional dentures, contact our Boca Raton office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cuomo.
