A full denture is a removable mouth piece that replaces all of the teeth in an arch (upper or lower teeth). A partial denture is an appliance that replaces the missing teeth and “holds on to” the remaining healthy teeth.
At Suncook Dental, we use the finest denture materials available. We take pride in helping you look and feel your best. We put great effort into finding the best possible way to improve your quality of life by getting you to feel like… you.
We design all our dentures on-site, and they’re manufactured to fit as precisely as possible. Our goal is to provide secure dentures that make you feel comfortable and confident.
There are multiple situations that merit the need for full dentures. Multiple missing teeth, advanced gum disease, and dental decay are all circumstances where full dentures can provide a very effective solution.
When a patient is not missing all her/his teeth in their dental arch, a partial denture provides the option for replacing only the missing teeth. All dentures fasten securely and can be inserted or removed as needed.
Most dentures are made from acrylic material. Some have metal portions that allow for a more secure fit, while others are entirely plastic. All dentures and partial dentures are designed to have the natural, aesthetic appearance of real teeth.
An immediate denture situation involves extracting damaged teeth and placing a denture right away. The preparation process for this takes about two weeks. In a conventional denture situation where the patient currently has no teeth, it takes several weeks before the dentures are cast, created, and ready to be placed. We are all very happy to make time to speak with anyone who has questions about this process.
At Suncook Dental, we pride ourselves on our denture services. We accept most insurance carriers and offer a variety of payment options for your convenience. Visit our family-owned dental office today! We’ll take care of you, and leave you smiling a little brighter.
