Dentures and Partial Dentures
Tooth loss no longer means a soft diet or gaps in your smile. Today’s modern teeth-replacement treatments make it possible to eat your favorite foods and smile confidently.
Our personal approach to dentistry means that we always give patients all of their choices for treatment and respect the decision they make. Perhaps one of the most important decisions patients face is how to replace missing teeth.
Modern Dentures – Better Than Ever
Dentures are still one of the most reliable ways to restore the function and appearance of your teeth and have improved dramatically in both fit and appearance.
At Affordable Dental Center of Wellington, we design partial dentures, complete dentures, and implant dentures to help patients regain their smiles.
Partial Dentures to Complete Your Smile
If you still have remaining natural teeth, a partial denture will complete your smile. Using small wire clips, partial dentures attach to your teeth. We carefully choose denture teeth to match so that when you smile, it looks uniform.
Metal base – Strong and durable
Pink resin base – Natural looking and lightweight
Flexible partials – Lightweight, attractive, and eliminate metal clasps
Dr. Bussell will be happy to discuss the benefits and limitations of each option.
He also recommends that you bring your partial denture to your exams so we can make sure it still fits properly and is free of damage.
Complete (Full) Denture Options
When thinking of complete dentures, erase the image of your grandparents’ big, boxy dentures from your mind. Complete dentures today prioritize both function and esthetics.
Full dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper or lower arch. We want you to be happy with your smile and will discuss details such as color options. We will also choose teeth that look natural for your age, gender, and facial features.
Fitting dentures is an art and requires precise planning. Dr. Bussell will design dentures that are snug yet comfortable to wear all day.
Never Be Without Teeth
If you’re facing dental extractions, you may have concerns about going without teeth during the healing process.
Dr. Bussell eliminates this worry by offering immediate dentures at the same appointment as your extractions. We will design them ahead of time in just a few appointments and have your dentures available for you right away. Regular maintenance appointments allow Dr. Bussell to adjust the fit as you heal.
If you opt for dental implant treatment, we can also place dental implants during your extraction appointment, reducing the number of appointments necessary to complete your smile.
Implant Dentures for Added Confidence
Combining the benefits of dental implants with the affordability of dentures is gaining in popularity among food lovers, professionals, and socially active patients alike. Implant dentures are the best of both worlds!
- Bone retention
- A secure fit
- The ability to enjoy a wider variety of foods
Dr. Bussell can place dental implants on either arch, though the lower is more common because lower denture fit typically poses a bigger challenge.
Implants make it possible for to dentures lock in with either a hidden ball or bar attachment. You can still remove them for cleaning and maintenance; otherwise, they will remain firmly in place.
