Lititz, PA dentists Dr. John and Dr. Sara Gotwalt offer options for the replacement of lost or missing teeth, emphasizing the importance of prompt treatment for optimal results. As experienced and highly trained dentist, they work with patients to create natural looking, functional and comfortable results that restore both dental health and quality of life.
Modern cosmetic dentures are more natural looking and comfortable than their traditional counterparts, custom made using high quality acrylic or porcelain materials. Most people are familiar with removable dentures, but today’s dentures can also be permanently secured using dental implants. This alternative treatment can give patients maximum comfort, lasting function and more natural aesthetics.
Types of Dentures
Full Dentures – Full dentures are used to replace all of the upper or lower teeth. Dentures can be either removable or permanently secured with dental implants. Patients who opt for implant supported dentures are typically more satisfied with their restoration than those who choose removable dentures.
Partial Dentures – Partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge in that they replace several missing teeth. In most cases, a partial denture is retained by natural teeth, often supported with a dental crown. Another option is to support a partial denture with dental implants. As with full dentures, the dental implant allows for improved stability and bone retention.
Benefits of implant-supported dentures include:
- Secure fit, no chance of slippage
- Improved health of bone and gums
- Healthier diet, no food restrictions
- No adhesives needed
- Highly aesthetic appearance
