Dentures & Partials An Overview
Dr. Jonathan Silverman can replace missing teeth with cosmetic dentures, restoring a smile that will enable you to enjoy your best quality of life. Dentures and partial dentures have benefited from the many advances in technology used in dentistry today. Patients enjoy a new smile that is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and can even improve oral health- especially when secured with dental implants.
Dentures can be removable or fixed, replacing a full top or bottom arch of teeth. Partial dentures, much like a dental bridge, are used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. Partial dentures can be anchored by healthy existing teeth or new dental implants.
Today’s cosmetic dentures are made from natural looking, high quality materials such as zirconia and porcelain. They are custom made for your unique smile. Dr. Silverman has over 25 years of experience helping patients address missing teeth with treatment that meets their oral health needs and their cosmetic goals.
Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures
Whenever possible, Dr. Silverman recommends securing your dentures with dental implants. Using a procedure known as All-On-Four™, Dr. Silverman will place as few as four strategic dental implants which will hold your hybrid denture in place for a stable smile.
Implant secured dentures offer key benefits for your long term dental health:
- Reduce bone loss in the jaw
- Enable a normal, healthy diet without limitations
- Allow normal speech
- Reduce changes in the bite that can affect the fit of your dentures
