Dentures and Partials

See how well dentures or partials from West Park Dental can fit into your life!

For patients who are missing many or all of their teeth, dentures may be a good solution. Depending on how many teeth are missing, Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher can customize a set of full dentures for your upper and lower arches or we can create a partial denture to fill in the gaps between your natural teeth. Dentures will give you the confidence to smile again, can renew your ability to eat nearly anything you want and enable you to speak clearly again. Dentures can be attached via traditional methods, such as adhesive, or by the use of dental implants. West Park Dental will do all that's possible to ensure your full or partial dentures enhance your smile and improve your dental health.

Two types of dentures are available full (complete) and partial dentures. A complete denture is used when all the teeth are missing and covers your entire upper or lower jaw, while a partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain.

REMOVABLE PARTIALS AND DENTURES

Both dentures and partials are removable, which makes them easy to care for. Simply remove the appliance, clean it with a regular toothbrush, and place it in a glass of water to soak overnight. You can even add a denture-cleaning tablet to the cup if you'd like. If you have any further questions about how to best care for your denture or partial denture, please ask the members of the West Park Dental team!

FIXED PARTIALS AND DENTURES

Patients looking for a more permanent, life like replacement for missing teeth may consider dental implants or implant-supported dentures. Dental implants have the highest level of satisfaction compared to the alternatives and they most closely resemble the feel, look and function of natural teeth.

With proper care, a denture can last 5 to 10 years. During that time, it's normal for the shape of your mouth to change. When these changes occur, your dentures may need rebasing or relining to ensure a proper fit.

At West Park Dental, Drs. Michael and Brian Gallagher provides both complete and partial denture services for patients. If you think you would like a permanent tooth replacement method, call us to schedule an appointment.
