Dentures Are A Dependable Solution for Missing Teeth

Smiling older woman sitting on beachTeeth are an important part of your speech, diet, appearance, and health. If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dentures can offer a viable solution. At Delmarva Sedation Dentistry, we offer three kinds of dentures—full dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures.

Full dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They’re designed to rest comfortably on the gum tissue and form to the contours of your mouth. Made from gum-colored plastics and tooth-colored porcelains, modern dentures look very similar to natural teeth. Dr. Edward Dougherty will design dentures according to your facial features, coloring, and measurements.

Partial dentures are a great option if you have some healthy teeth remaining. Secured with inconspicuous clasps, partial dentures are made to fit with surrounding dentition like a piece of a puzzle. A partial denture can easily be removed for regular cleaning and maintenance.

Implant-supported dentures provide unrivaled strength and function. With them, a patient will never have to deal with slipping, clicking, clasps, or adhesives. In addition, implant-supported dentures help prevent the bone loss that accompanies missing teeth. Click here to learn more about dental implants.

Dr. Edward Dougherty and the rest of our team will listen to your concerns and help you choose the right option for your particular case. If you currently wear dentures, you can bring them in for an evaluation. Dr. Dougherty may recommend relining your current dentures for a better fit or retrofitting them with dental implants for increased stability. Our practice serves patients from all over Ocean City, MD and the entire Delmarva Peninsula. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
