Schedule an appointment with a Philadelphia area dentist to learn about dentures

During a typical appointment, patients in the Philadelphia area discuss their concerns with their dentist. This is the best way to discover the many options available for treatment. When patients are missing teeth, they are often introduced to several methods of repair. The three primary ways a patient can replace teeth is with dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants. Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” option. This is why it is essential to talk with a dental professional to discuss the pros and cons of each choice.

Meet Dr. David Spilkia, Philadelphia Area Dentist to Learn about Dentures

What are dentures?

Dentures come in two varieties – full and partial. When patients are missing one or just a few teeth, partials are considered. They slide into place in the dental arch with the metal framework and place false teeth where needed. If the entire arch of teeth is missing, patients will need full dentures, which are made of acrylic and include false teeth and gums. They are held in place with natural suction or with dental implants along the arch.

Why dentures?

There are many reasons patients choose dentures. First and foremost, they are the most economical. Many dental insurance companies will cover the cost of dentures. Second, dentures are easy to care for. Third, they are also very natural looking when compared to past restorations.

During an initial appointment with our dentist, patients can learn about the advantages of using dentures to repair the function and beauty of their smiles. The practice of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can be contacted at (267) 463-2777 to schedule an appointment with our team and discuss the many benefits dentures and other tooth replacement options can provide.
