Full & Partial Dentures
Has the time come for you to consider dentures? Tooth loss can feel embarrassing, and if you are struggling with the loss of multiple teeth, a full denture or a partial denture may be the solution to restore both function and aesthetics to your smile.
Greeley, CO dentist, Dr. Andrew Bagley, helps patients reclaim their smiles and their confidence with both removable dentures and implant-retained dentures.
Full Dentures in Greeley
A full or complete denture is an oral appliance that replaces all of your teeth. It can be a traditional removable appliance or dental implants can be used to support it. Using dental implants eliminates any movement or slippage when you talk or eat.
If you’re thinking of the denture that your parents or grandparents wore and find yourself cringing, you should know that today’s dentures have advanced significantly. They are thoughtfully designed so that they form an excellent fit to your facial structure. They are also designed to achieve excellent aesthetics that complement your appearance.
Dr. Bagley works closely with a trusted local dental lab using the best materials to create a denture you will feel comfortable and proud to wear.
Partial Dentures in Greeley
A partial denture is ideal for those patients missing multiple teeth, but who still have many healthy teeth remaining. A partial denture fits similarly to a retainer - with clasps that attach to healthy teeth and keep it in place. Then, like a puzzle piece, a partial denture slides into place and the attached artificial teeth fill in the open spaces and restore your smile.
Is Your Denture Slipping?
If you’re already living with a denture that is not fitting properly, we know it can be very frustrating. It is difficult to eat with a denture that moves and it can be embarrassing to talk with other people when you’re worried about your teeth slipping out.
Your denture may need to simply be relined to improve the fit. If a denture reline isn’t the right choice for you, you may want to consider using dental implants to hold your denture in place.
A few tooth implants can be placed in your bone, and then we design your denture to fit onto them, which eliminates any movement. Implants also help to keep your bone from deteriorating, which happens over time with traditional dentures and can affect the way your denture fits.
