Are you missing multiple teeth? Maybe you have an upper or lower arch of missing teeth. Try dentures.
Dr. Jim Lassiter is a dentist in Jay, FL that provides full and partial dentures to patients. Dentures are a restorative treatment that provides a secure and stable bite for patients with multiple missing teeth. By receiving a denture, patients can avoid future dental problems that arise because of missing teeth. Teeth can shift to fill in the space left by a missing tooth, which causes crooked teeth. Prevent shifting and crooked teeth, as well as bite and speech problems by receiving care in our office.
Treatment with Dentures
Before choosing a treatment option, our professional team will examine the health of your teeth and gums, assessing your bite and tooth structure. They will also review your specific dental needs before choosing a restorative treatment, which may consist of full or partial dentures.
Complete or full dentures are used to replace most or all of a patient’s teeth. You can have a full denture on your upper or lower jaws. Sometimes these dentures are inserted immediately after remaining damaged or decayed teeth are removed. An advantage of this option is that patients have teeth during the healing period. Conventional dentures can then be made once the tissues have healed after six to eight weeks.
A removable denture is an option that fits over several remaining natural teeth or dental implants. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are a great option for patients who have several missing teeth but have some natural teeth remaining. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to plastic bases connected by a metal framework. These dentures attach to natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments, which blend in with teeth. Dental crowns can also be placed on natural teeth to improve the fit of a removable partial denture.
