Dentures & Partials Bradenton, FL

What Are Dentures and Partials?

Dentures and partial dentures are used to replace all or several missing teeth and can be removable or secured to remaining teeth with a dental implant.

Replacing a lost tooth, or several teeth, is important for the restoration of not only dental health but daily quality of life. Missing teeth eventually lead to more complex dental issues as remaining teeth shift position and the jaw begins to shrink due to bone loss where tooth roots once were. This often results in difficulty with eating and speaking.

Types of Dentures

There are several types of dentures available, depending on the number of missing teeth to be replaced.

  • Full denture: used to replace a full upper or lower arch of teeth when all have been lost.
  • Partial denture: similar to a dental bridge, a partial denture replaces several missing teeth.
  • Implant secured denture: a denture can be permanently secured with several dental implants.

Whenever possible Dr. Patel will recommend an implant secured denture for the most comfortable results and long term dental health benefits.

Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures

Implant dentures have a 95% or better success rate and equally high level of patient satisfaction. While this procedure does require a greater initial investment compared to alternatives like removable dentures or bridges, implant dentures offer the best long term benefits.

  • Significant improvement in retention and stability
  • Restores normal chewing function, meaning no restrictions on diet
  • Improves long term bone health
  • Allows patient to speak and smile naturally and comfortably
  • NO glues, adhesives, soaks or rinses
