Here at Chris E. Lindsey DDS in Palo Alto, California, we understand why people may feel self-conscious about their missing teeth in their smile. That is why our team has put together information, on dentures, so you can get the smile restoration you deserve.

There are two different types of dentures. There are complete and partial dentures. Here is more information on the two kinds of dentures:

Complete dentures:

Complete dentures are used to replace all your teeth in an arch of your mouth. There are times, where you may only need one arch depending on your individual needs. However, whether you need one arch or both, our staff can give you the set you need to complete your smile. One thing you can use to secure your dentures into place is using a denture adhesive, so you can have stability with your dentures.

Partial dentures:

A partial denture is used if you are missing teeth, continue to have some remaining natural teeth. This denture has thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a strong and secure fit. With partial dentures, you may still have some healthy teeth of your own. Having the secure fit with your natural teeth can give you stability with your partial dentures.

When you have missing teeth, we understand how difficult it can be to talk or chew your food. That is why our staff is happy to help you find the best solution for your oral care needs, so you can enjoy your favorite foods and family time this holiday season.
