Your smile is far too valuable to let it go without a fight. Call Dr. Morton to find out about the different restoration options available at Mint 32 Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA. And find out how we can give you your smile back with cosmetic dentures.
What are cosmetic dentures?
Cosmetic dentures are dental restoration that is aimed at giving you back the teeth you have lost. A denture consists of the restorative replacement teeth fixed in a polymer base that is then custom made to fit inside your mouth. They are meant to mimic the feel, function, and look of your real dental arch.
What types of dentures are available from Dr. Morton?
Mint 32 Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA offers all available types of dentures. This includes all of the following:
Traditional – Traditional dentures include both full and partial dentures. Full dentures are a full row of teeth (upper or lower arch) that will replace the teeth you have lost or had to have extracted. Whatever the case may be, your whole smile can be restored with the help of the “full” option. Partial dentures are used when you have lost a few teeth and a dental bridge will not work for your situation. Dr. Morton will help you decide what options will work best for you.
Implant-Retained – Sometimes called overdentures, these dentures incorporate the use of dental implants. You will have implants placed in your jaw, and then ball attachments will be placed on top. Matching receptors in the base of the denture will simply snap onto the balls on your implants. This keeps them firmly in place.
Implant-Supported – For this dental implant application, you will have dental implants placed in your jaw as well. These dental implants will support your denture through a bar that runs along the implants and attaches to the underside of the denture. This will give you a secure fit and feel while you are living your life as normal.
Are dentures better than dental implants?
People sometimes think that this is an either-or scenario, and that is just not true. Dental implants are not better or worse than dentures. They are different. Dental implants, however, are able to do things that dentures can’t. When used together, they make for an exceptionally effective treatment for those who have lost a good portion of their natural teeth. They are not competing but rather working together to accomplish the same goal: a healthier dental condition for you.
