When should Knoxville patients decide to get dentures?

Many patients are disconcerted at the idea of dentures. It is a common misconception that only the elderly utilize dentures. Knoxville patients at Sequoyah Dental Arts are quickly enlightened, and are educated about the many situations in which dentures may be needed.
It is important that patients understand that there are two kinds of dentures. The first is called a partial denture. These are used when one or several teeth in an arch are missing. They are made in the same style as a retainer and they snap into place to restore the smile. The other type of denture is called a complete denture. These are what patients may consider when they have lost all the teeth in their arch, or are considering having the rest extracted. These are made with acrylics and are held in place with suction or dental adhesives. Patients who want the ultimate in dentures will consider implant-supported dentures, which use dental implants to secure the dentures and keep them strong and sturdy.
There are many options to consider, as well as alternatives. Some patients may consider a dental bridge, which is a restoration that fits over the space left from missing teeth. Others may find that a dental implant is a preferred solution. Dental implants are surgically placed into the bone and gum and topped with a crown. These are the ultimate in dental restorations, but not everyone is a viable candidate for them. Discussing options with a cosmetic dentist is the best way to learn more about dentures and all the alternative treatments that may be considered.
Dr. Foncea is an experienced, qualified cosmetic dentist that can work with patients to determine the best solution to their dental problems. Whether a patient chooses a dental implant, dental bridge, or denture, the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts will provide patients with the care and experience they deserve and expect.
Educating the patient about his or her options is important to Dr. Foncea, and he will gladly schedule a consultation appointment for new or existing patients that are considering cosmetic dentistry.
