What Are Complete Dentures, And How Do They Work For Teeth Replacement?

At Gentle Dentistry of Columbus in Columbus, Georgia, Drs. Devon Paris and Laura Watterson work directly with their patients to help them achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, especially when they need teeth replacement. A patient can replace missing teeth in many different ways, so learning about one’s options is the first step in achieving a healthy, functional smile! One way our team may suggest replacing teeth is with full or complete dentures.

How do complete dentures work?

When all the teeth in the dental arch are missing or extracted, replacement is critical to restore the smile’s appearance and function. You may find that you cannot enjoy your favorite foods or speak clearly without teeth. You might also avoid smiling and socializing because you are embarrassed at the appearance of your smile during this transition. Fortunately, our team at Gentle Dentistry in Columbus can provide full, complete dentures to replace teeth and restore health, function, and appearance.

Complete or full dentures are made of high-quality acrylic and include false teeth and gum tissues. They are placed over the dental arch and secured with dental adhesives. Some patients may choose implant-supported dentures, which use four to six implants along the arch to stabilize a conservative denture that allows them to enjoy all their favorite foods again! When you learn about your options, you can then decide which treatment is right for you. We want our patients to have the knowledge necessary to understand the pros and cons of each choice to ensure the one they choose fits their lifestyle and budget the best!
