Dentures & PartialsTampa, FL

Dentures are the most commonly used restorative dental care solutions for replacing missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a pink base. The artificial teeth mimic the natural teeth, while the pink base mimics the gum tissues.

Dentures are custom-designed for each patient to fit snugly over the gum line. They can replace a few or all the teeth on a dental arch. Dr. Rebecca Benedict helps restore rows or arches of missing teeth with dentures in Tampa, FL.

Types of Dentures in Tampa, FL

There are two types of dentures:

Full Dentures

Full dentures or complete dentures are used when all the teeth on a dental arch require replacement. Complete dentures can be either immediate or conventional. Immediate dentures are made after extracting any remaining problem teeth. Conventional dentures are made after the tissues have healed. 

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when not all but a few teeth on any dental arch need replacement. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a pink-colored base. The backs of the dentures are connected to metal frameworks that are attached to the neighboring teeth and keep the dentures in place.

The Benefits of Dentures

Some of the most prominent benefits of dentures are as follows:

  • Dentures can replace a few or all the teeth on a dental arch.
  • They are removable and can be removed when according to the patient’s will.

  • The patient’s chewing ability improves as the gaps left by missing teeth are filled.
  • Dentures also correct and improve speech.
  • They are the most cost-effective and the most affordable when it comes to replacing missing teeth.
