Dentures & Partial Dentures

Dentures have been a trusted solution for replacing missing teeth for years.  Dr. Konotopetz can determine if they are a good solution for your needs.  Dr. Konotopetz will cover the pros and cons of wearing dentures with you considering your lifestyle and goals for your appearance.  

 

There are three types of dentures: temporary, partial dentures, and complete dentures - temporary dentures, partial dentures, and complete dentures.  Temporary dentures are used when patients are undergoing a cosmetic procedure to replace a missing tooth.  These temporary dentures are used to ensure a natural smile while waiting for a dental implant or dental bridge to be completed. Partial dentures are used when a patient has only a few teeth missing.  These partial dentures can be held in place by a plastic base or dental implants.  Complete dentures are used when all a patient's teeth are missing.  

 

While very durable, dentures may need to be replaced, repair or adjusted due to normal wear.  Dr. Konotopetz can help determine whether they can be repaired or replaced.
