Improve your Smile with Dentures by Oakland Family Dental
Dentures are the most traditional and affordable way to replace missing teeth. For patients throughout Waterford Township and the surrounding communities, Dr. Amanda M. Sheehan can fit you with dentures, partials, or implant-supported restorations that completely replace the teeth you’ve lost.
Learn your Dentures Options
Restoring your smile starts with finding a denture option that matches your tooth loss needs. At Oakland Family Dental, Dr. Sheehan offers two unique denture options, each of which are suited to meet the needs of different patients:
For patients missing all the teeth in their smile, complete dentures are an affordable and effective way to restore bite function and self-confidence.
For patients missing some but not all the teeth in an arch, partial dentures are a cost-effective method of replacing lost teeth without compromising healthy teeth still left in the smile.
Alternatives to Dentures
While dentures and partials are the most popular option for replacing teeth, they aren’t the only solutions to tooth loss. In addition to these traditional tooth replacement options, our dentist in Waterford also offers dental implants and implant-secured restorations to help patients improve the look, feel, and function of their smile.
Dental implants are the optimal way to replace missing teeth. Rather than sitting about the jaw, dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. Not only do dental implants provide a strong foundation for any future restoration, this innovative treatment also preserves bone shape and prevents sagging or shrinking that commonly comes with dentures. Other advantages of dental implants include:
- Contributes to Overall Oral Health: Implants are independent and so not require altering healthy teeth.
- Natural Look & Function: Dental implants allow you to speak clearly and eat anything.
- High Success Rate: Dental implants have a 95% success rate when properly cared for.
While dental implants are more expensive than dentures the long-term benefits of this treatment make it a worthwhile investment for many. Patients with existing dentures and partials in particular often find dental implants as a perfect upgrade for their existing treatment.
For patients missing one or two teeth, a dental bridge can be a cost-effective tooth replacement option. During this procedure, healthy teeth next to the gap are reshaped and fitted with dental crowns, which support the replacement teeth. Once the bridge is placed, patients are left with a natural looking restoration.
While affordable, dental bridge do have some drawbacks. As healthy teeth must be worn down, bridges may increase the likelihood of tooth decay and damage to these teeth which can require future treatment and restorations. Similar to dentures and partials, bridges can also wear over time and will require future replacement.
