Truthfully, almost any person missing several, most, or all their teeth is a viable candidate for dentures. During your consultation, we’ll conduct a thorough oral examination to determine whether this solution is right for you. If you have any preexisting oral health issues like tooth decay or gum disease, you’ll need to have them addressed before you can move forward with the process of getting dentures. Your mouth must be in optimal condition to support your new prosthetics!
During your initial consultation, your dentist in Jacksonville will evaluate your needs and recommend one of the following options:
If you only have a few missing teeth, partials may be a good option to consider. They replace teeth that are on opposite sides of your mouth and keep the existing teeth from shifting around. Partial dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly and seamlessly complete your smile. They’re attached to your remaining natural teeth with clasps.
Full dentures are ideal for patients missing an entire arch of teeth. They’re designed using a gum-colored base and enamel-colored replacement teeth for a more natural appearance. Unlike partials, they’re held in place using natural suction or denture adhesive.
If you want a smile that’s long-lasting and as stable as possible, you should consider getting implant dentures. The prosthetic is attached to titanium dental implants that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Once fully healed, you’ll be able to enjoy unmatched chewing and functionality. Plus, your new-and-improved grin can last several decades if properly cared for! Dr. Carlson has attended the prestigious Misch Implant Institute.
