Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you are missing one or more teeth, it may make you hesitant to smile. Our team believes that everyone should have a confident smile, and we offer multiple missing-tooth solutions at our office including dentures, partial dentures, and dental implants.
Dentures are a great option for replacing missing teeth because they can provide a solution that lasts and functions for many years.
One version of a complete denture is called an immediate denture. An immediate denture is a complete denture that is placed at the same time as your last remaining tooth is removed. It allows you to instantly have a full set of teeth and walk out of the office. It is not uncommon to need a denture reline as we heal, the bone may decrease.
Another version of a complete denture is called an overdenture, which is also known as an implant-supported denture. Overdentures are a very effective form of complete denture therapy that are preferred by some patients for their more stabilized and fixed fit.
A partial is a tooth replacement appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. It is held on by clipping on to some of your existing natural teeth or crowns
A CONVENTIONAL PARTIAL DENTURE is a tooth replacement appliance that stays in place by hooking or clipping on to some of your existing natural teeth or crowns. You can generally identify a conventional partial denture by a small metal clasp around one or more teeth.
At Black Hills Area Dental, we work with you in depth on a missing tooth solution that is based on your goals. Ultimately, we want you to feel supported by a treatment plan that will make your smile happy and healthy again.
