Most people are familiar with dentures, which are full replacements of teeth. Partials are similar to dentures but may replace only a few teeth in a row. Both can transform not just your smile but your entire facial structure.
Endicott Dental offers the most common type of dentures, which fit over the soft tissue of the jaws. We also offer Snap-In Dentures and Overdentures, which partially rely on dental implants, and Hybrid Dentures, which rely completely on dental implants and are not removable. Dr. Endicott will discuss your options with you.
Upper and lower plates fit over your gums and provide a complete set of teeth. We can customize your dentures to your preferred look.
Partial dentures replace only a few teeth in a row, rather than all of them. These are perfect for people whose other teeth are healthy.
Snap-In and Hybrid dentures rely on dental implants to stay in place. That means you won't need pasty denture cream to prevent slippage!
These dentures use posts that snap into dental implants while also resting on the gums. The posts prevent slippage while eating or talking.
Hybrid dentures screw into dental implants placed in the jaw and cannot be removed like traditional dentures.
Upper dentures are just for the upper teeth and can include a cover over the palate (roof of the mouth) or can just cover the gums.
Tooth loss can diminish your smile and reduce your self-confidence. It can also lead to problems eating, which can affect your overall health. Dentures and partials can help solve these issues.
Endicott Dental can restore your smile, improve your eating abilities and bring back your self-confidence with dentures or partials. Replacing lost teeth with dentures or partials can reshape your face and give you the look you once had. Contact Endicott Dental to see how we can restore your smile and your confidence!
Partials stay in place with claps around the natural teeth and arms that hold them in place.
Dentures may feel odd to you at first. They may feel bulky, and you may have trouble speaking normally immediately after you get your dentures. Once you get used to having them in your mouth, they will feel more normal.
Yes! They may feel "odd" at first, and you may have periods of adjustments shortly after installation. Once you're used to your partials, you'll be able to eat like normal.
As with regular dental checkups, we recommend you visit the dentist once every six months. We will check your dentures and determine whether they fit properly and need repairs or adjustments.
Dr. Endicott will review your health information and perform a full evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for dentures or partials.
