It is estimated that over 36 million people in the United States are missing one or more teeth and over 120 million Americans are missing all of their teeth!
At Norco Family Dental, we understand it can be extremely frustrating if you can't eat food comfortably or you don't like the appearance of your smile. Dr. Buffington and Dr. Stewart have worked with countless patients to restore esthetics and function with a complete or partial set of dentures.
A complete denture is an acrylic prosthetic device that mimics the look of healthy teeth and gums. There are two types – conventional and Immediate.
A conventional denture is fabricated when all remaining teeth are removed and the gums have been allowed to heal, a process that can take anywhere from three to four months. After healing, the denture is fabricated. Patients have the option of wearing an immediate denture during this time so they are never without teeth.
An immediate denture is fabricated before the teeth are removed, and when the teeth are removed, the denture is placed. This is an excellent temporary option, and the patient is never without teeth.
A partial denture is similar to a complete denture but uses existing healthy teeth as anchors to secure the denture. It's made of the same acrylic, but often has a metal reinforcement to give it strength. With so many improvements and advances in dentistry, partial dentures are a wonderful option for patients missing more than one tooth.
