Have you ever wondered if dentures are the best path for you? If so, you are not alone. With so many new cosmetic dental procedures and smile restoration options, it’s easy to find yourself wondering about what path to take. That is why, our team here at Cardwell Family Dentistry in Sylva, North Carolina, is happy to give you some basic information on dentures, and how they can help you.

There are two types of dentures that can be used depending on your personal needs. These types are complete and partial dentures. Here is more information on each:

Complete dentures:

Complete dentures are used to replace all your teeth in an arch of your mouth. There are times, where you may only need one arch depending on your individual needs. However, whether you need one arch or both, our staff can give you the set you need to complete your smile. One thing you can use to secure your dentures into place is using a denture adhesive, so you can have stability with your dentures.

Partial dentures:

A partial denture is used if you are missing teeth, continue to have some remaining natural teeth. This denture has thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a strong and secure fit. With partial dentures, you may still have some healthy teeth of your own. Having the secure fit with your natural teeth can give you stability with your partial dentures.

As you can see, there are different kinds of dentures to use for your smile and depending on your individual needs, our team can fit you with dentures to restore your smile.
