A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Florence Dental Care can provide the appropriate solution depending on a patient's individual situation.
Personal Care for Your Needs
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A partial denture is removable and has internal attachments that make it a more natural-looking appliance.
An Alternative: Dental Implants
Florence Dental Care specializes in dental implants that can be used to support permanently cemented bridges, eliminating the need for a denture. The primary benefit is implants and bridges more closely resemble the feel of real teeth. While not everyone is a candidate, implants are becoming a realistic alternative to dentures for many.
If you are looking for denture or dental implant services, the skilled professionals at Florence Dental Care are able to provide the appropriate and comfortable solution catered to your individual needs.
