Dentures are dental restorations that can replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. Dr. Kelly Halle-Brown provides complete dentures and partial dentures for patients in Quakertown, PA. She works with patients throughout the treatment process to create custom restorations that feel comfortable and natural.
Dentures and Partials in Quakertown, PA
There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. A complete denture replaces all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches depending on your individual needs. Dr. Halle-Brown may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
We will suggest a partial denture if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.
Dr. Halle-Brown may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth. Dentures can improve your ability to properly speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and enhance the overall beauty of your smile. Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically, and securely.
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, we may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. Dr. Halle-Brown inserts the dental implants into the jawbone to securely anchor the denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require four to six dental implants per denture.
Once the implants are placed and fully healed, we will attach your permanent denture. Implants provide your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function like their natural teeth.
