If you are missing one or more teeth, dentures may be the right option for your smile. Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace lost teeth. Made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum- or pink-colored base, dentures fit snuggly over your gums for a brand new smile. There are two types of dentures available at Advanced Family Dental Care, full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in either your upper or lower arch. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain in your smile, and this type of denture is often supported by metal framework. Dr. Dustin Wilde, our gifted dentist, will know just what your smile needs after a thorough examination.
