The loss of several natural teeth can leave a person struggling to eat their favorite foods, speak clearly with friends, and simply enjoy the act of smiling when happy. If you are ready to improve your quality of life and enjoy life's little pleasures, contact Mark L. Voltarel, DMD, PA in Orange City, FL to explore your reconstructive options right away. Dentures have been around for hundreds of years, and today’s modern designs are sleeker, more attractive, and more comfortable than ever before.
Full dentures are designed to replace the entire upper or lower arch of teeth all at once. This prosthetic stays in place through the power of natural suction; sometimes, patients also prefer to add a little denture adhesive for added stability. They can be removed from the mouth when practicing oral hygiene or sleeping. At Mark L. Voltarel, DMD, PA, our team strongly encourages patients to explore implant-retained dentures as an excellent alternative to the traditional model. By anchoring your new prosthetic in place, you can enjoy improved health, security, and confidence.
Partial dentures (also known as “partials”) are designed to replace certain teeth along a single arch while leaving any healthy dental structure safely in place. They typically come with strategically located clasps or brackets that hold them in place within the gum line. Like full dentures, partials are removable in nature, but they can also be more securely anchored through the state-of-the-art power of dental implants.
