Dentures & Partials for Louisville Residents
Louisville Restorative Dentist Providing Dentures & Partials
Dentures and partials have been in use for centuries as a form of tooth replacement, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t evolved over the years. Today, we use lightweight and natural-looking materials to create your dentures and partials at our Louisville, KY locations of Remmers Dental. We know a great fitting denture makes a world of difference in the performance of your smile and your appearance. Teeth perform a number of duties, so replacing ones that have been lost is essential to achieving long-term health and wellness. Full or partial dentures are one of several options you might choose from.
Dentures and partials are both tooth replacement options, and a full denture is recommended for patients who are completely endentulous (missing all teeth). A partial denture is similar to a full denture, only it’s designed to fill in the gaps of missing teeth while clasping to those healthy teeth that remain. Full dentures are held in place by suction or denture adhesive.
Why might a patient opt for a denture? Dentures and partials are extremely affordable, and they provide tooth replacement that requires no surgery. For some patients, surgery isn’t an attractive option, because of age, oral health status, or discomfort with the idea. While we still recommend dental implants as the most stable form of tooth replacement, we craft top quality dentures and partials for those who would prefer a removable option.
We also secure dentures with dental implants. An implant-supported denture snaps onto specially designed implant posts to make your denture wearing experience even more positive. No more worrying about embarrassing slips!
You’ll visit our Louisville dental office for a visit with either Dr. Kenneth Remmers or Dr. Steve Remmers, and we’ll make a recommendation about the best possible tooth replacement treatment for you. Should we recommend a denture or partial, we’ll take impressions to maximize the comfort and functionality of your fit and then send this information to a dental lab. Remmers Dental has been building relationships with top quality dental labs since 1966, so you can trust the craftsmanship of their work. When your denture or partial denture returns, we’ll make necessary modifications to get a truly great fit, and you’ll be on your way. It takes a little time to get used to, but once you do, your denture or partial will serve you well.
