Dentures in Bryant
Do I Need a Complete or Partial Set?
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth. Whether complete or partial, dentures can make your smile full again while restoring function to your speech and eating ability. Complete dentures support a full set of artificial teeth by forming a tight seal with the gums. Partial dentures may have only one or a few artificial teeth and attach directly to existing teeth. Your insurance may also cover dentures, but contact your provider to be sure.
Are There Denture Alternatives in Bryant?
While some patients may like the flexibility of removable dentures, others may find them burdensome and prefer more permanent solutions.
Luckily, options such as bridges and dental implants are available at Wright Dental:
- Dental bridges are permanent fixtures that replace missing teeth using crowns. A crown is first placed over an existing healthy tooth on each side of a gap. An artificial tooth – or as many as three – is attached to these crowns and cemented in place to replace missing teeth.
- Dental implants function more like natural teeth than any other option, but often at the cost of being the priciest solution on the table. A dental implant is a metal screw inserted into bone of the upper or lower jaw, which regrows around it to anchor the implant in place. An artificial tooth is then fixed to the screw, filling the gap with a more permanent replacement.
