As patients consider their dental options for missing teeth, dentures often come to mind. 

What many people don't know is how versatile dentures can be. They are not just a replacement for a full set of teeth, like patients might imagine. They can perform several dental functions, replacing a full set of teeth or just a few.

There are a wide variety of denture options depending on the patient's individual needs—schedule a time to discuss what dental options are the best solutions to your specific issues. 

Full Dentures

These might be what patients typically imagine when they think of dentures. Full dentures are a complete set of teeth that sit on top of the gums. 

These dentures are for patients who need a full row of teeth replaced. In order to facilitate full dentures, procedures like extractions may be necessary. 

Partial Dentures

These types of dentures replace a section of missing teeth on either the top or bottom row. Just like full dentures, they are removable and comfortable to wear.

Implant-Supported Dentures

These dentures provide additional advantages over traditional dentures. In addition to being nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth, implant-supported dentures provided by your local Apex, NC Dentist stay anchored in place by their supports. This makes them better suited for patients who want a denture appliance that will stay in place and function primarily like regular teeth.

Immediate Dentures 

Patients use them as a temporary set of dentures for the patient. They are same-day dentures given to the patient post-extraction while they are healing. Meanwhile, their permanent set of dentures are being made to suit the patient's needs and mouth and tooth shape.
