Types of Dentures
If you have a mouth full of missing teeth (an maybe some that need to be taken out) then full dentures may be an option for you. Dr Patel can craft a custom set of dentures that will have you smiling again!
If you’re only missing a few teeth, then removable partial dentures may be an option. Partial dentures are typically not considered the optimal choice but are an affordable alternative to other more permanent options.
Fixed (Snap In) Dentures
If your existing dentures are constantly coming loose, or are generally causing discomfort, then implant retained snap on dentures may be an option. Often times, patients are not able to to eat what they want without having a the support of an implant to keep the denture in place. We would recommend scheduling a free implant consultation with Dr Patel to see if implant fixed dentures are an option to consider.
