Dentures & Partials

If you’re after convenience and affordability without compromising aesthetics, you might be interested in dentures and partials. Recent advances in dental technology have made improvement in dentures' comfort, functionality, and appearance. At Harbor Hill Dentistry and Airway Center, we create realistic-looking dentures customized to give you a perfect fit.

What Are the Two Types of Dentures?

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are often recommended for patients who have lost all their permanent teeth. Often called full dentures, patients can wear them in either their upper or lower arch.

The denture process varies depending on the situation of the patient. Healing time is required if teeth are extracted. Some patients require multiple versions of the denture to find the right fit. Dentures can also be fabricated to fit over implants, creating a more secure and comfortable fit.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be recommended as a replacement option for missing teeth. Often they are used to replace multiple teeth missing in the upper or lower arch. Partial dentures are removable and can usually be made prior to tooth extraction so the patient has limited time with missing teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures and Partials?

Enhance Your Smile – Missing teeth will rob you of much more than your ability to pronounce certain words and chew food. Studies show that it can also lead to serious emotional repercussions impacting your self-esteem. Realistic-looking dentures will enhance your smile as they mimic the features of natural teeth.

Comfortable to Wear – As long as a denture fits well, discomfort should be minimal

Can Last for Years – The average lifespan of dentures are seven to ten years.
