When you’ve lost two or more teeth, daily functions can become much more difficult. Biting, chewing, speaking, and even smiling can cause you problems and interfere with your quality of life. At Dr. Makram’s dental office, we’re proud to offer solutions that can help you regain your missing teeth and much more. Partial and full dentures have proven effective for hundreds of years, but we provide state-of-the-art dentures and partials in North Naples that will exceed your expectations.
Without any teeth on one or both of your arches, you wouldn’t be able to eat much of anything or pronounce words clearly. Total tooth loss doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with nothing, however. Full dentures are a convenient, time-tested way to enable you to recover the smile you lost. Prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored plastic base that rests on your gums, allowing your artificial teeth to look as realistic as possible.
Partial dentures are useful for filling multiple gaps that are not consecutive along a row of teeth. While full dentures rely on suction to hold the appliance in position, partial dentures use metal clasps that fit around your remaining healthy teeth to stay in place. However, like full dentures, partials can be easily removed for cleaning at night. Catering treatment to your needs, Dr. Makram can design and deliver a partial denture that fits comfortably in your mouth.
