Dentures are a great way to replace most or all of your teeth after they have fallen out or have been removed. A simple, non-invasive treatment method, there are many advantages to using dentures over other forms of tooth replacement. Dentures are affordable, removable, and do not require major surgery to complete. They are also very versatile. Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our dentist at Great Lakes Dentistry in Shelby, offers many forms of dentures in Shelby Township, Michigan based on your individual needs and goals:
- Full dentures – Shaped like a horseshoe and resting completely on your gums, full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in your lower or upper dental arches, or both. Full dentures are made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base.
- Partial dentures – Unlike full dentures, partial dentures replace only some of your smile and require natural teeth to remain. Along with a base, partial dentures often use a thin, metal framework to support itself.
- Implant dentures – Implant dentures are exceptionally secure and stable. Placed on small metal posts placed in your jaw, implant dentures are great for any form of tooth loss you may have experienced.
We will work closely together with you to determine which type of dentures will restore your smile most effectively. If you would like more information and are considering dentures, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We are eager to help make your smile healthy and bright!
