WHEN ARE DENTURES THE BEST OPTION? Missing teeth not only spoil your natural smile, but they can lead to more serious issues that range from difficulty in speaking and eating to jawbone deterioration. Technological advances in dental materials and denture construction have made both full and partial dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever before. You can be sure that Dr. Caffaratti remains at the cutting edge of that technology to offer you full and partial dentures that provide you an optimum fit, natural feel, and restoration of your radiant smile. WHAT DENTURES ARE RIGHT FOR ME? Partial Dentures A partial denture, commonly known as a “partial”, consists of multiple teeth on a gum-colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather are spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth, so as to present a natural look. Partial dentures are removable, and are normally secured with clips or brackets. Full Dentures A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Full dentures can be closed or open palate in design, and require a denture adhesive to hold them in place. WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS FOR DENTURES? Dental Implants are small titanium posts that are anchored into the area where the roots of your teeth once were. These dental implant posts can be placed during a brief surgery right here at the dental office of Dr. Caffaratti. This approach serves as a viable alternative to clips and brackets, or adhesive, and eliminates concerns about slippage. Your implant-supported dentures will always feel secure and, better yet, natural. Together we can create a smile that reflects your lifestyle.
