Dentures are a removable option for replacing multiple missing teeth. There are two types of dentures that we offer at Riverfront Dental LLC: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in either your upper or lower arch, or both. Partial dentures replace missing teeth when you still have some natural teeth remaining. Partial dentures are often supported by a thin, metal framework. Dr. Howe and Dr. Dugan, our experienced dentists, will be able to determine if dentures are your best option for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures in Salem, Oregon are made of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base that fits snuggly over your gums. In most cases, a number of weeks is needed before dentures can be permanently worn. The main reason for this is because your gums need to fully heal, or else the dentures could cause damage to your gum tissues and increase the risk of bone loss. After your gums have healed, dentures are completely safe to use. Compared to other types of dental appliances that replace missing teeth, dentures are affordable and less invasive. Because dentures are also removable, we are able to make adjustments as time goes on. To learn more about dentures, please call and schedule a consultation with our dentists today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
