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.

Dentures & Partials What to Expect

Dentures allow patients to enjoy a more varied diet and can improve overall confidence. Dentures help prevent the deterioration of the jaw bone and support a more functional use of the bite.

Dentures are custom designed and fabricated to enhance the aesthetics of the individual patient. Dr. Myers will work with a local dental lab to create a denture that fits precisely and comfortably for a stable and secure bite.

Dentures are typically removable but can be permanently secured using dental implants for the best possible result.  Dr. Myers and our dental care team will provide detailed information on how to properly care for and clean your dentures.

Implanted Secured Dentures

Dental implants can be used to secure a denture or partial denture. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Implants offer added support of the jaw bone and can help prevent slippage of an ill fitted denture. If patients choose to secure their denture using dental implants, Dr. Myers will coordinate with a local oral surgeon for the surgical phase.
