Partials and dentures as a way to restore the smile after tooth loss

The loss of teeth can be devastating for patients. However, at Argyle Family Dentistry, we are pleased to provide solutions for patients to consider when replacing them. Dentures and partials are an economical and effective way of replacing one or more teeth within the smile to restore appearance and function. Dr. Ava Khodakhast and her team in Centennial, Colorado, work directly with patients to educate them further on the advantages of dentures and partials for restoring the smile

What types of dentures are available at Argyle Family Dental? 

Patients might consider several types of dentures when replacing missing teeth. They include: 

  • Partials – partials, also known as partial dentures, replace one or more teeth in the dental arch. These are appliances that are made with a metal or flexible pink framework. This framework snaps into place within the arch to allow artificial teeth to rest where natural teeth once were. These appliances are easy to care for and are removed daily for cleaning. If patients experience changes in the smile structure, these dentures are adjustable to compensate for this.
  • Complete dentures – complete dentures, also known as full dentures, are acrylic appliances used to replace all the teeth in the dental arch, either on the upper or lower jaw. These are maintained in the mouth with denture adhesives or natural suction. They can take some time to get used to but are the best and most affordable way for patients to replace all the teeth when needed.
  • Implant-retained dentures – alternatively, some patients might choose to have implant-retained dentures created. These are full dentures that snap in with several dental implants along the dental arch, which hold them in place. That is an excellent option for patients as these restorations are sturdier and more durable, though they are a more expensive solution than traditional dentures.
