Dentures & Partials
Are dentures or partial dentures right for me?
It’s time to crush the stereotype that dentures and partials are only for older populations. Patients come to Dental & Aesthetics of Pittsburgh for dentures and partial dentures for a variety of reasons, including tooth loss due to an accident, severe decay, or premature tooth loss. Dentures and partials provide an affordable and long-term solution for patients looking to get a beautiful smile once again.
Many people think that dentures or partial dentures will inhibit their ability to eat their favorite foods or will look unnatural. However, a set of dentures from an experienced dentist can provide you with natural-looking dentures that function no differently than normal teeth.
Depending on how advanced your tooth loss is, Dental & Aesthetics of Pittsburgh will suggest either full or partial dentures. In some cases, this will require the extraction of some teeth, but we prioritize keeping as many of your natural, viable teeth as possible. Either way, the end result is a smile you can be proud of showing off to the world.
Why are dental implants a good choice for me?
Dental implants are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile that use surgically-placed posts to anchor replacement teeth in the jaw. As a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth, dental implants are designed to blend in with your other teeth.
Dental implants are a great choice for our patients because your body uses a process called osseointegration that accepts the implant as a natural part of the mouth. Rather than creating a superficial fix, the bone in your jaw forms around the implant for a healthy solution that will last for years. Replacing missing teeth with implants also improves chewing and digestion , which will lead to overall better dental and physical health.
Best of all, dental implants are extremely natural-looking. Dental & Aesthetics of Pittsburgh will customize the false tooth – called a crown – that goes on top of the implant. This crown will match perfectly with your existing teeth to restore your smile to its natural beauty.
