Dr. Brian Han may recommend complete or partial dentures to replace your missing teeth and restore your ability to eat and speak with confidence. Dentures are a type of prosthetic teeth and are designed to replace multiple missing teeth so that you can regain your quality of life and appearance.
There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete dentures — Complete dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. They may replace the upper arch, the lower arch or both arches of teeth.
- Partial dentures — Partial dentures are used when you are missing some teeth but still have healthy teeth remaining.
Dentures may also be placed atop implants to provide a more stable solution for your smile.
If you are receiving dentures, plan on several appointments. Your dentures will take some time to create, as we want to ensure that they fit and function perfectly. Please also be aware that your dentures will require periodic maintenance in order to keep them in good condition. Our dentist will review care and maintenance of your dentures with you at the time that you receive them and will check the dentures for any signs of wear or damage at each of your regular appointments. If your dentures begin to cause discomfort or break, please contact our office immediately.
