Dr. France Chevalier is one of the best dentists in the Gloucester area who understands the importance of a beautiful smile that is both healthy and functional. When patients come to her practice with concerns such as missing natural teeth, they will want to take the time to learn about the many options available to them for restoring their smiles. Dr. France Chevalier offers many replacement options for adult teeth including dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures. Many patients want to learn more about dentures as they are often a more economical choice.
Dentures come in two different types which include partial and full.
Full dentures, are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. They are often the type many patients think of when they hear the word “dentures.” They may remember their grandparents removing their dentures at night. These dentures have come a long way over the years, and now they are more beautiful than ever. Dr. France Chevalier uses some of the best acrylic materials to make strong and attractive full dentures for her patients when they are dealing with tooth loss. Dentures may be held in place with dental adhesives or natural suction. Full dentures are affordable and effective at replacing many natural teeth.
Partial dentures are used in situations where patients are missing one or more teeth in the upper or bottom dental arch. These dentures are made with non metal cast frames which allows them to snap into place using the existing teeth for support and holding a false tooth called a pontic in place where the missing tooth once was. Dr. France Chevalier may suggest partial dentures as an alternative to dental implants or dental bridges depending on one’s specific dental situation.
If you are interested in learning more about full and partial dentures, Dr. France Chevalier encourages you to come to her practice for an examination and consultation appointment to educate yourself on whether or not these types of restorations are best for your specific needs.
