What are dentures?
Dentures are one of the great options we offer at Alaska Dental Arts to help you restore your smile. If you have lost multiple teeth, Dr. Derek Lowe may suggest dentures in Fairbanks, Alaska, to return your smile’s function, health, and beauty. We offer both complete and partial dentures at our dental office to accommodate your personal dental needs and desires.
What is a complete denture?
A complete denture, also called a full denture, is used when all of the teeth in a full dental arch are missing. We can use a complete denture for the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.
What is a partial denture?
A partial denture is used to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth are still left in your smile. The partial denture is designed to be held in place by the remaining teeth, and also often uses a thin framework or clasps.
Do I need dentures?
If you have lost many or all of your teeth, dentures can be a good option for improving your smile’s appearance, restoring your ability to speak and eat as normal, and enhancing the shape and volume of your face. We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dentures and to schedule your next visit with our caring dentist.
