Dentures Eastside Albuquerque, NM
While tooth loss is common, an incomplete smile does not have to be the outcome. We know how traumatic it can be when you lose multiple teeth. It makes enjoying mealtimes next to impossible. You may cancel plans because you feel uncomfortable laughing and smiling around people when you have gaps in your smile. We understand the embarrassment that comes with tooth loss and our Albuquerque, NM dentists offer high-quality dentures to patients missing some or all of their teeth.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices that are meant to replace your missing teeth to help restore function and aesthetics back into your smile. Dentures are made up of a gum-like plastic base that holds a set of artificial teeth, and they can either replace a full set of teeth or just a few missing teeth.
Two Types of Dentures: Full and Partial
- Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed and may require frequent adjustments during the first couple of months of use.
- Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are considered a removable alternative to bridges.
Benefits of Getting Dentures
The major benefit is that dentures are an easy way to replace several or all of your missing teeth. For those suffering from tooth loss, being able to eat and speak comfortably can instantly restore confidence. Another positive of getting dentures is that it’s more budget-friendly than other dental treatments out there and it’s a great option for anyone dealing with tooth loss.
