What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that are designed to replace missing teeth and restore the natural appearance and functionality of your mouth. They are custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth and can be a great option for individuals who have lost their teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury.

Types of Dentures

At Lakeshore Family Dentistry, we offer various types of dentures to suit different needs:

  1. Complete Dentures: These dentures are used when all the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw are missing. Complete dentures are designed to replace the entire arch of teeth and provide support for your facial structure.
  2. Partial Dentures: If you have some natural teeth remaining, partial dentures can be a suitable option. They are designed to fill the gaps between your natural teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.
  3. Implant-Supported Dentures: For patients looking for a more secure and stable solution, implant-supported dentures can be an excellent choice. These dentures are attached to dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing enhanced stability and preventing bone loss.
