Full and Partial Dentures in Broomall
If you have recently lost some or all of your teeth, or if your existing dentures are worn out or do nott fit well, you can look healthy and have a beautiful smile with lifelike dentures from Dr. Sander I. White in Broomall. We will custom design your smile and meticulously fit your teeth so that they have the best suction possible and we will work to make them fit comfortably as you use them to eat and smile and chew. Using specialized techniques we can make dentures that are continuously molded as you use them, resulting in an excellent fit.
Our dentures can take years off of your appearance almost like a face lift! They are made like a tailored suit with custom measurements and custom fittings and of course your choice of the color, size and arrangement of the teeth. Do you want them to look like your original teeth? Like the ones you see in Hollywood? Do you want them to look like nature was very good to you, or like you had an artist for a dentist? We will help you make it all happen.
With your new custom dentures, you will experience renewed confidence as you smile and comfort as you eat. This is even more true if you opt to receive implant supported dentures, a stable and healthy option for almost anyone missing teeth. For even more security, take advantage of our emergency denture program, which includes a second set of teeth to ensure that you never go without your smile even if your dentures are lost or broken.
If you have lost all or most of your teeth due to age, accident, or decay, Dr. White may recommend full dentures. Your custom-made dentures will contain full rows of upper and/or lower teeth using natural-looking prosthetics in a gum-colored base. With a full, natural-looking smile, you will look younger, have access to a full and varied diet, and regain all the benefits of a mouth full of teeth.
There are several types of full dentures which are fastened in different ways, including:
- Natural suction: Adhesive-free dentures cling to your gums naturally, simplifying cleaning and saving you the hassle of applying denture cream.
- Over-the-counter adhesive: Also called denture cream, dental adhesives provide extra adhesion and stability for your dentures. When used properly, denture cream is a safe and functional option for keeping your smile secure.
- Dental implants: To achieve the most secure fit for your full dentures, Dr. White offers dental implants.
Implant Supported Dentures
Dental implants are surgically installed titanium fixtures which take the place of the roots of missing teeth, and are the most stable and secure option for holding your dentures in place. Sturdily anchored in your jaw, just a few implants will allow you to fasten your dentures with maximum stability. Never again will you fear having your dentures come loose or fall out while you eat, speak, or smile.
In order to fuse properly to your jaw bone, dental implants can only be installed in those who have fully functioning immune systems and sufficient bone mass in the jaw. If you have bone loss due to age, tooth decay, or other conditions, you may need treatments to restore your jawbone before you can qualify for implant supported dentures. Dr. White can provide options tailored to your individual needs after an initial exam.
For our patients who still have some healthy teeth remaining, we offer partial dentures, also called removable dental bridges or partials, to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures fit like puzzle pieces into the gaps in your mouth, completing your beautiful, healthy smile. Dr. White uses unobtrusive metal clasps to anchor your partial dentures to healthy neighboring teeth, ensuring stability and a natural look. For clasp-free restorations and permanent bridges, he may recommend dental implants.
