Cary NC Dentures
Learn more about the best dentures Cary NC can offer!
Our Cary NC dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and renew your smile. If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can improve your health and your appearance. Dentures enable you to speak and chew better than if you had no teeth. Without teeth, your face may sag and appear shrunken inward, making you look older. Dentures can fill out your lips and cheeks, restoring your familiar appearance. And the best dentists in Cary, NC are here to help you do just that.
Complete dentures are for when you have no remaining teeth. Removable partial dentures are for when you are missing some, but not all of your teeth. The dentures Cary NC dentists Dr. Timothy and Dr. Maureen Raczka offer include both types of dentures.
Types of Complete Dentures:
- Conventional: This denture is made and inserted after your teeth have been removed and the tissues have healed. This can be several months after the teeth are extracted.
- Immediate: This denture is inserted immediately after all remaining teeth have been removed. While it will need to be relined as the tissues heal, this denture allows you to have teeth right away.
- Overdenture: Occasionally the roots of some teeth can be maintained to preserve jawbone and provide additional stability and support for the denture. An overdenture sits over these roots. Dental implants can provide the same function as the retained roots.
Removable Partial Dentures replace missing teeth and rely partly on the remaining natural teeth to support and retain them. In a partial denture, replacement teeth are attached to pink or gum colored acrylic bases. A partial denture can have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth or it can have more natural looking connectors. In some cases, precision attachments can be used to attach to your teeth. Precision attachments are more esthetic than wire clasps, but typically require the fabrication of new crowns, making these partials more expensive than those with clasps.
