What types of affordable quality dentures are available in Philadelphia?
Dr. Spilkia, of Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, is proud to assist his patients who want to restore their smiles after tooth loss. For some patients, aging can cause the loss of natural teeth, and many of these patients may consider restorative options such as affordable quality dentures. Philadelphia patients can turn to Dr. Spilkia and his team for a recommendation of which type of denture they would benefit from. At Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, two types of dentures are offered: partial dentures and full cosmetic dentures.
Partial dentures are best for patients who are missing one or more teeth within a dental arch. They may have lost these teeth due to extraction, trauma, or disease. There could be teeth within the arch that are healthy and solid in the bone, and they do not need to be extracted. At this point, Dr. Spilkia might recommend partial dentures. Partial dentures are similar to a retainer, made on a metal frame with plastic molding that holds false teeth. When worn the false teeth fit in place and restore the smile. This is a great, affordable solution for patients who do not have enough bone structure for dental implants or would not benefit from dental bridges.
Full Cosmetic Dentures
Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. This may be the upper arch of the lower arch. Patients can have teeth extracted to use full dentures. They are kept in place by dental adhesives and suction, or can be used in conjunction with dental implants, which can secure the dentures in place so patients can feel confident when eating, smiling, and laughing! Full dentures also give patients the opportunity to undergo a full mouth makeover and get the smile of their dreams with high-quality dentures.
Although there are other restorative options available for tooth loss, including dental bridges and dental implants, full or partial dentures might be a better solution for some. Dr. Spilkia works with his Philadelphia patients to ensure that they have the knowledge they need to make an educated decision about which restoration is best for their smile!
