Pembroke Pines dentist explains complete and partial dentures for tooth replacement

In Pembroke Pines Area Dentist Explains Complete and Partial Dentures for Tooth Replacement

A missing tooth or an entire arch of teeth can negatively impact your smile and your confidence. However, it’s important to remember that the gap in your smile doesn’t have to be permanent. There are several options to replace missing teeth, including dental implants, complete and partial dentures, and crown and bridge appliances. However, many patients don’t know how to evaluate their options and make a decision.

Residents of Pembroke Pines, FL, can work with Dr. Milton Ruiz of Pines Dental Associates in to learn about their tooth replacement options. Dr. Ruiz is an experienced and trusted dentist who cares about the health and appearance of your smile. He works with patients to understand their lifestyle, budget, and timeline and helps them pick the best solution to meet their needs.

Dentures are a popular choice among patients who want an attractive and comfortable teeth replacement option, but don’t want to invest the time or money in bridges or implants. There are several types of dentures, including:

  • Complete dentures replace an entire set of teeth. This type of denture replaces the entire arch of upper or lower teeth, along with a portion of the surrounding tissue.
  • Partial dentures replace a single tooth, or several teeth. A partial denture is an appliance in which the replacement teeth are secured to a plastic base. The appliance snaps firmly into place with a metal framework. It can be taken out at night to sleep and when the patient needs to brush their teeth.
  • Partial dentures are important not only because they keep the remaining teeth from moving, which prevents further dental problems and they restore a patient’s confidence by eliminating gaps in the smile.

The denture process takes several weeks and multiple visits to the dentist’s office. First, Dr. Ruiz will make impressions, take measurements, and take x-rays. Next, models of the denture will be used to ensure comfort and correct appearance before creating the final denture. After the denture is created it can be fine-tuned to ensure a comfortable fit.

Many patients are thrilled to learn that dentures have improved a great deal since their grandparents had them. Today’s dentures look and feel much like their natural teeth. To learn more about dentures or other tooth replacement options call Dr. Milton Ruiz of Pines Dental Associates at (954) 715-4660 today.
