Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Dentures can be made of acrylic plastic or sometimes porcelain and metal materials. Our dentures at Smile Arkansas are designed to closely resemble your natural gum tissue and teeth. The old days of fake looking smiles and teeth are over. Today you can trust that the right denture will restore a very natural appearance for your smile!
Complete vs. Partial Dentures
Complete dentures replace all of the teeth. Partial dentures on the other hand, fill in spaces where teeth are missing and can also prevent other teeth from shifting.
Immediate vs. Conventional Dentures
Dentures can be either immediate or conventional. Immediate dentures are inserted on the same day, right after the removal of natural teeth. The immediate denture protect the tissues after extraction. The conventional denture is then prepared and ready in about ten to twelve weeks to give the gums time to heal.
Who needs dentures?
A partial denture is for people who have missing teeth, but still have some of their natural teeth remaining. Dentures are not just for older people. Patients of any age may lose some or all of their teeth through sports, injuries, accidents and a variety of other causes. Because teeth are a permanent part of the body, tooth loss is more than just an inconvenience, it can have an emotional impact as well. At Smile Arkansas, we understand this and know just how important it is to get you back to a natural looking smile you can enjoy for years.
