Effective methods of replacing teeth in Knoxville area practice
There are many situations that may arise for Knoxville area patients that may cause them to lose teeth. This may include injury, disease, or extraction. Dr. Pablo Foncea and the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts believe in offering a variety of methods for replacing missing teeth. The three most popular methods are:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
While dental implants and dental bridges are more permanent methods of replacement, they are also costlier than a traditional denture. Dentures have come a long way over the years. Many patients who think of dentures envision the false teeth their grandparents had. These teeth may have slipped or looked very unnatural, causing most individuals this to have a negative perception of dentures. However, dentures today fit better and are beautiful, giving patients an economical way of replacing one or more teeth.
There are two types of dentures available at Sequoyah Dental Arts. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth and are made of high quality acrylics. They are fabricated using precise impressions of the teeth after preparations have been made, which may include extraction of remaining teeth. Another solution may include partial dentures. These prosthetics are made with metal and acrylic framework and false teeth. They snap into place within the dental arch like a retainer but hold in false teeth. Partial dentures restore the function and beauty of the smile in an affordable way.
In many instances, dentures are covered in part or in whole by most dental insurance policies. They are easy to maintain. Dr. Pablo Foncea and his team educate patients on how to care for their dentures to extend their lifespan and hold their value over time. Patients who need dentures but do not have dental insurance can talk to our team about financing available to make their new smile easily attainable on a tight budget.
