Partial and Full Dentures
When dental health issues like tooth decay and gum disease are left untreated long enough, they can lead to tooth loss or the need for tooth extraction. If you hesitate to replace a lost tooth, then your risks of losing more teeth will rise significantly due to a gradually weakening jawbone. For patients who exhibit the loss of several teeth, or complete tooth loss on their upper and/or lower dental ridges, a partial or full denture can restore their confidence and quality of life. Custom-designed specifically to your needs, a partial or full denture can reestablish your ability to enjoy your favorite foods again, as well as speak and smile with the confidence you had in your youth!
A full denture consists of a complete row of highly lifelike replacement teeth, while partials are crafted to fit around any healthy, natural teeth that remain. Both full dentures and partials rely on a comfortable, gum-colored base that fits comfortably and securely on your dental ridge. However, a partial may also consist of small, hidden clasps for additional support. For improved results, Dr. Jenkins may recommend implant-supported dentures that are secured in place with a series of dental implant posts (prosthetic roots that are placed into your jawbone). Implants offer the dual benefits of supporting your denture and stimulating your jawbone, which prevents your jaw from growing weak.
