Fremont area patients can use dentures to replace missing teeth
Replacing missing teeth results in a variety of options for patients to choose from. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the staff of StarBrite Dental offer three types of replacement solutions – dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures. Patients in the Fremont/San Jose, area who are considering replacement options may choose dentures.
What types of dentures are available?
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala offers two types of dentures – complete dentures and partial dentures. The difference between the two is the number of teeth they are intended to replace. Complete dentures are the dentures many think of when they see their grandparents with false teeth. These dentures are intended to replace an entire dental arch and are fabricated with high quality acrylics. They stay in place with:
- Dental implants
- Natural suction
- Dental adhesives.
Partial dentures are for patients missing one or more teeth within the dental arch. They are fabricated with a metal framework and acrylic false teeth and snap into place.
Are dentures right for me?
Many patients are interested in finding out if dentures are the best solution for their smile. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala evaluates the patient during a consultation visit to determine if dentures are appropriate. Complete dentures require no teeth in the arch, which means patients may need preparatory treatments such as permanent tooth extraction. Partial dentures are best when the surrounding teeth are healthy and can provide support for the restoration. Patients are educated on both options and can make their own decision in regards to which they prefer.
