If you are considering dentures in Lumberton, NC, Dr. Colin Osborne can help. We provide different denture options for patients in need of tooth restoration. Let's look at a few different types that are available.
Traditional or false teeth are created as a set for patients who have none of their natural teeth. This type can be taken out at night for cleaning. This option often requires that a patient use dental adhesive to keep the teeth in place.
Partials are created when a patient has some of their natural teeth. This option will also require that a patient take out the teeth at night for cleaning.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. With this option, the teeth are connected to the implants which are surgically implanted into the available bone. The teeth will not be removed as they are permanently fixed to the mouth. This provides the look and feel of natural teeth. This option can be done for a full set of teeth or for individuals missing teeth.
You can also get a snap-in option. With a snap-in option, the set of teeth will be much like traditional. However, the set will snap into the mouth with the help of dental implants which are surgically implanted into the mouth. This provides a more secure fit and usually, there is no need for the use of dental adhesive.
