At Centre dentaire Fancelli, our dentists offer natural-looking dentures to replace missing teeth, as well as the surrounding gum and jaw tissue.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial profile, eat properly and speak well. Removable, partial and complete dentures are the most common method of tooth replacement, especially when a large number of teeth are missing.
Replacing missing teeth is essential to your oral health. If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures are a more affordable option for replacing them than bridges or dental implants.
Removable Dentures & Dental Implants
Removable, complete and partial dentures that are uncomfortable or unstable can also be stabilized with dental implants, eliminating the uncertainty of a denture that moves while talking and eating.
Types of Dentures
If you need dentures to replace a missing tooth, row of teeth, or an entire jaw of missing teeth, your dentist can help you choose the option that's right for you.
- Full Dentures
Your dentist will use full dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth or complete dentures, if you are missing a whole jaw of teeth.
You can have them fitted for your upper or lower gums, and they are held in place by suction and/or with the help of an oral adhesive.
Full dentures can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
- Partial Dentures
Your dentist will use partial dentures if you are missing more than a few teeth or if your surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a dental bridge.
Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto your natural teeth or a tooth replacement like a dental crown.
They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
If there is not enough gum tissue to support full dentures, dental implants may be used to help stabilize the dentures for a secure fit.
Benefits of Dentures
When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
Filling in a gap caused by missing teeth is also crucial to your long-term oral health. By fitting you for dentures, your dentist will also help protect your remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to more serious issues like gum disease.
At Centre dentaire Fancelli, we offer a full and partial denture service including the manufacture of new customized dentures.
