Dentures, Partials & Implant-Retained Dentures
Missing teeth can cause discomfort, frustration, and even embarrassment. Tooth loss makes it harder to speak clearly and enjoy fresh and healthy foods.
Your dentist in Jonesboro wants you to smile and laugh comfortably and freely, without concerns about the way your smile looks and feels. We also want you to enjoy a healthy diet. For these reasons, we offer a variety of denture solutions, including:
- Complete dentures
- Partial dentures
- Implant-retained dentures
Complete Dentures in Jonesboro, AR for Full Tooth Replacement
Complete dentures are a time-tested solution to tooth loss, and with today’s technologies, you can enjoy a beautiful and functioning smile with this solution. A complete denture stands in for full tooth loss.
The first step is an exam in our dental office. Your dentist wants to make sure that dentures are right for you. If dentures are a good option, we take impressions of your mouth and use the resulting models to craft a custom prosthetic that works with the unique contours of your jaw.
Your dentist makes adjustments to the finished prosthetic so that you have a smile that is both beautiful and functional from the very start!
Partial Dentures in Jonesboro, AR to Complete Your Smile
Partial dentures follow the same process as complete dentures, but this prosthetic stands in for partial tooth loss. It relies on healthy teeth and clips for support.
A partial denture is ideal if your remaining teeth are healthy enough to support this option.
Implant-Retained Dentures in Jonesboro, AR for a More Stable Option
With this technology, your dentist relies on four to six dental implants to fix your prosthetic to your jaw. This prevents slippage and loosening over time as your jawbone deteriorates—a normal process when teeth are lost. Your implant-retained denture in Jonesboro, AR may help prevent jawbone loss because the implant can stimulate the bone to remain viable.
The process for implant-supported dentures starts with a consultation. If you’re a good candidate, your dentist surgically places dental implant posts that act as replacement roots. When the roots integrate with your jawbone, we fix your denture to these new roots after several months.
We Care About Your Smile
We take our time to ensure that we make the highest quality and best-fitting dentures we can. We also put great care into giving you a beautiful smile you can be proud of.
Replacing your old denture – If you have lost, broken, or worn out your old denture, we can get you back to smiling in no time. Dentures do wear over time. Signs your dentures may need to be replaced can include flattening of the back teeth or cracks or thin areas visible when you hold it up to the light. Replacing your existing denture doesn’t mean we give you a carbon copy of your old one. Your mouth will have changed since the last prosthetic was made, and we will make your new denture custom to accommodate that.
New denture wearers – First-time denture wearers usually need extractions if their remaining teeth are not healthy enough to support a partial. When teeth are removed, the gum tissue and bone underneath shrink. Once the gums have healed, the denture can be made to most accurately fit your mouth.
We can make a temporary denture and put it in on the day of tooth removal to have teeth to smile and eat with during the healing process.
Loose Fitting Dentures – If you have an uncomfortable or loose denture, schedule a consultation with one of our Jonesboro dentists to see about a reline.
