Dentures & Partials An Overview
If you are missing all of your teeth, or need to have your teeth removed, dentures can restore your smile. With advancements in dental technology and materials, dentures are now more natural looking and better fitting. Patients enjoy improved comfort, aesthetics and long term oral health benefits.
Emerald Isle NC dentist Dr. Audrey Myers offers dentures and partial dentures as a replacement option for a full arch of missing teeth. If dental implants are to be used to permanently secure your denture or partial denture, Dr. Myers will coordinate the implantation of the post with a local oral surgeon.
Replacing Missing Teeth
Replacing missing teeth is essential for supporting long term oral health and the function of the bite. Even just one missing tooth can compromise the structure and alignment of the teeth and jaw, impacting your dental health and your appearance. Missing teeth can lead to the recession of the jaw bone, additional tooth loss, and gum disease. Replacing missing teeth as soon as they are lost can help prevent the need for complex bone and gum grafting in order to replace your teeth with a stable and comfortable result.
