Edmond Dental Implants & Partial Dentures
Fill a Dental Gap with a Fully Rooted Dental Implant
When you're missing a tooth or even many teeth, dental implants may be just the thing for restoring the look and function of your mouth. Dr. Monica Neely works with oral surgeons and periodontists, who place the implant in your jaw. Think of a dental implant as a durable imitation root topped with a dental crown. Once the implant is inserted into your jaw and fuses with the bone (osseointegration), Dr. Neely will make an impression of the mouth that will be used to build the custom abutment and crown.
Solve a Range of Dental Issues with Implants
Implants serve many functions:
- Support for a loose-fitting denture, providing more security and comfort
- Replacement for one or several teeth (without involving the surrounding teeth), which constitutes a more conservative approach to missing tooth replacement
- Provide a practical, successful alternative to partial dentures
- Support for individual (or multiple) teeth or a bridge
Save on Tooth Replacement with Partial Dentures
If you're not eligible for dental implants or don't want a more permanent solution for missing or broken teeth, consider the time-honored partial denture. A cost-effective solution for gaps in your mouth, partial denture preparation begins with the removal or broken or damaged teeth, when necessary, and the creation of an accurate impression of your mouth. Our lab quickly creates the partial denture and we custom fit it during your second visit. At that time, we'll also update you on caring for your new device.
Our office offers two kinds of partials:
- Traditional partial dentures include metal fasteners that are attached to an impression of the palate or the surrounding teeth
- Valplast partial dentures are made from a durable, lightweight resin, are usually more comfortable than traditional dentures, and are faster to fit and to remove
Consider the Benefits of Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are perfect when you're missing only one or two teeth, and they are close to one another.
They offer several benefits:
- No full palate plates (unlike complete dentures)
- No invasive procedures (unlike dental implants)
- Fast and easy to make
While not considered a permanent solution, partial dentures look and feel like real teeth.
Decide If Partial Dentures Are Right for You
Partial dentures are a good solution for patients who have experienced bone loss in the area near their missing teeth, as that is generally irrelevant with partials. They're also suitable for all ages, as long as your adult teeth have come in and can last for up to 10 years. Because they are not permanent, they also give you the option of starting with partial dentures and moving on to implants down the line, as time, budget, or circumstances permit. Finally, many insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of partial dentures.
