Partial and Full Dentures
Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures. This is a cost effective procedure which will improve the esthetics and function of your smile.
Full dentures are used when the patient has lost all of their natural teeth. Full dentures can restore the patient to proper function when chewing. Dentures also help maintain the health of the patients jaw and prevent the face from drooping. This improves the patient’s esthetics and prevents pain in the jaw joints.
Partial dentures are used when the patient is missing some, but not all, of their teeth. As with a full denture the benefits are allowing the patient to function properly, preventing the remaining teeth from shifting, and improving esthetics.
If you are missing teeth and cannot chew properly or don’t like the missing teeth in your smile, call Dr. Ward to discuss the proper procedure to have you looking and feeling your best!
