Dentures are a common way for individuals to replace missing teeth. From full dentures to partial dentures, Dr. Dernick has years of experience providing quality dentures for patients young and old.
Partial dentures are dentures that replace one or several missing teeth, and are a removable device that snaps into place similar to that of a retainer. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. They are removable for easy care and cleaning, and are worn by patients to help restore a beautiful smile. Dentures are often the most affordable options for patients, making them a less expensive alternative to bridges and dental implants. Dental implants, however, can be used in conjunction with dentures in order to provide stability, allowing a denture to “snap” into place and eliminate the need for denture adhesives. Many patients that opt for this kind of set up for their dentures state that it is worth every penny they invested.
The materials used for dentures have changed considerably over the years, helping them look better and more natural than ever before. Dr. Dernick has the benefit of having a denture lab within the building, giving him the opportunity to provide quality dentures to his patients quickly and efficiently. Over time, as patient’s bones may shrink and facial muscles sag; Dr. Dernick can make adjustments to his patient’s dentures to help rejuvenate not only their smile, but their face as well. The loss of teeth can cause an individual’s face to look more sunken in because of the loss of structure from their teeth; therefore, dentures can provide what can be considered a “facelift” for patients who are experiencing changes in their face due to their missing teeth.
Dr. Dernick can offer a variety of options to his patients when it comes to partial and full dentures, as well as alternatives for those who may not be an appropriate candidate.
