Learn more about dentures from your Sterling Heights dentist.

Embarrassed about your missing teeth? A denture is a removable appliance that can replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. denturesDr. Arnold Bansen is one of Sterling Heights, MI's finest dentists and offers state-of-the-art dentures to his patients. Read on to learn about the four different types of dentures that are available today.

1. Partial Denture

A partial denture is used when some teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. A partial denture fills in the gaps created by lost teeth and prevents other teeth from shifting position. This denture has a metal framework and clasps that connect to the teeth. Partial dentures are a removable alternative to bridges.

2. Full Denture

A full denture is a removable dental appliance that is used to replace a full set of teeth. This denture is created and placed in your mouth after your existing teeth have been removed and the tissues have healed, which may take several months.

3. Overdenture

An overdenture is attached to either two dental implants or two mini-implants. The dental implants help to stabilize the overdenture in the mouth. An overdenture, which is removable, will require less investment than a fixed dental bridge.

4. Implant-Supported Denture

Implant-supported dentures can be used if you do not have any teeth in your jaw, but have enough bone to support dental implants. An implant-supported denture is attached to dental implants. A traditional denture rests on the gums and is not supported by implants. A secure fit and comfort are just a few of the many benefits of implant-supported dentures.

A denture will give you back your smile and improve your quality of life. Are you ready to make your smile whole again? Call Dr. Bansen in Sterling Heights, MI at (586) 979-1450 right now to schedule an appointment. Everyone deserves a beautiful smile!
