Full & Partial Dentures in Sarasota
A smile just isn't a smile if it is incomplete. Missing teeth cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating, to reduced self-confidence, to jawbone deterioration. Don't give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made partials and full dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever.
Unlike the in-stock product offered at 1-day denture clinics, Dr. Hoffman will work with you to construct a partial or a full denture that will be fully customized to address your needs. To achieve this, gum color, aesthetics, clips and brackets, and the exact anatomy and color of the teeth selected will all be considered and become part of the master design that will ensure your comfort and the functionality, efficacy, and aesthetic value of your customized piece.
What is a Partial?
A partial denture, commonly referred to simply as a "partial," consists of multiple teeth arranged and mounted on a gum-colored, custom-made base that often offers a solution when several teeth are missing. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.
What is a Denture?
A full denture is indicated when all your natural teeth are missing, and constitutes a complete top and/or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored, custom-made base.
If the health and stability of your existing natural teeth are greatly compromised, and dental implants, partials, crowns or bridges are an option unsuitable to your needs, a full/complete denture could deliver the solution that you are looking for.
During your consultation, Dr. Hoffman will be able to evaluate your needs, listen to your concerns, and offer you a personalized plan, which might also include the option of making a customized, immediate denture for you. With proper planning, this choice will allow you the possibility of having your denture ready and waiting for you on the very same day that you have your compromised teeth extracted.
If you are in need of a partial repair or a denture repair, please call us to schedule a time to come by the office. Dr. Hoffman will visit with you, listen to your concerns, and evaluate your needs to determine the quickest, most effective way to help you.
