Partial and Complete Dentures
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious and make it difficult for you to eat the foods you need to stay healthy. Eating is one of the great joys of life, but missing teeth can make it impossible to maintain a varied and nutritious diet. At Essenmacher Family Dental, we provide a wide variety of denture options to complete your smile and make speaking, eating, and smiling more comfortable!
Valplast Partial Dentures
Valplast partial dentures are made of an innovative flexible material that moves with your mouth. Because they are flexible and lightweight, yet sturdy, they offer greater comfort, while still offering stability.
Beautiful dentures are important for your self-esteem and confidence. Valplast partial dentures look natural so you don’t have to worry about a fake-looking smile.
Since they come with a lifetime guarantee (against breakage and fracture of the base), you can count on many years of service with a Valplast smile.
Cast Partial Dentures
Traditional, rigid partial dentures offer longevity and durability. We create them to lock-in with your remaining teeth so that you have a complete, stable bite. We will design your partial dentures to complement your remaining teeth so that your smile appears seamless.
Partial dentures come in metal or in gum-colored pink resin. We can discuss the pros and cons of different types of partial dentures so that you can make a decision that works well for your health, appearance, and lifestyle needs.
Complete (Full) Dentures
If you have lost all of your teeth on either your upper or lower arch, complete dentures can give shape to your facial structure, allow you to chew and speak comfortably, and give you confidence regarding your appearance.
Designing complete dentures requires skills and experience. For them to work properly with your bite, they need to be accurate. We start with impressions and designing a denture that will fit great and look great. We will work with you to choose a look to your dentures that will you love.
Even if you have complete dentures, regular dental exams are still important because we check the fit of your denture and perform a life-saving oral cancer screening.
Some patients like to have extra security when it comes to how their dentures fit. We proudly offer implant-retained dentures so that you can feel confident when you eat, smile, and laugh.
We will use several strategically placed dental implants to secure your denture in place. Because the denture locks in, you will not need to worry about it coming loose at the most inconvenient or embarrassing time.
