Whether you’re missing a few teeth or an entire arch, you might be a good candidate for dentures of Jonesboro. Of course, your mouth must also be in good health, and you’ll need to commit to a solid oral hygiene routine. To ensure you’re a good candidate for this method of tooth replacement, Dr. Shane Smith and the rest of the team will thoroughly examine your mouth during your initial consultation. If we find any issues (like an infection in your gums or remaining teeth), we’ll recommend preliminary treatments in your overall plan to restore your smile.
Dentures in Jonesboro are an excellent solution for patients suffering from any degree of tooth loss, helping them enjoy a functional and confident smile once again. At your initial denture consultation, you’ll learn more about your available options and recommended treatment plan. In general, there are three types of dentures our team will discuss with you:
If you have some healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture may be the ideal option for you. It fits between the teeth to seamlessly close gaps throughout your smile. The gum-colored base and prosthetic teeth are held in place using small metal clasps that loop around the neighboring teeth, completing your grin and restoring a fully functioning bite.
Full dentures are designed to replace an entire row of teeth at the same time. Like partials, they also have a discreet, gum-colored base and lifelike prosthetic teeth. However, this type of denture sits on top of the gums and is held in place using natural suction or a small amount of denture adhesive.
Do you wish to have the sturdy, powerful chewing ability of your natural teeth? If so, you may want to consider implant dentures. Our team will attach a full or partial denture to a small number of dental implant posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. This option allows you to enjoy maximum stability and avoid unwanted movement. Additionally, they can last over three decades with proper care and prevent your jawbone from shrinking after tooth loss.
Dentures continue to be one of the most popular methods of tooth replacement, and for good reason. You can reap numerous benefits with this solution, including:
