Dentures Minot, North Dakota

Missing teeth has negative effects on one’s dental health, but it can also be a huge burden on everyday life. Chewing and speaking can be strenuous or impossible, and overall appearance and self esteem is compromised. Broadway Family Dentistry makes custom dentures at our Minot, ND location for patients whose teeth cannot be restored, and require extraction.

Do I Need Dentures?

Anyone can lose teeth for a variety of reasons. Getting older often entails the gradual loss of teeth, and of course, accidents happen. Missing teeth can cause strain on the ones that remain, resulting in pain and difficulty functioning. When teeth are missing or no longer restorable, dentures are an effective option.

Are There Different Types of Dentures?

Dentures are always customized to the patient’s needs. They may be complete and replace all of the patient’s teeth, or they can be partial, replacing one or several teeth. Both partial and complete options are an alternative to having nothing to replace the teeth.

Types Of Dentures

There are three types :

Complete Dentures

Complete or full dentures are only required for people who have lost all or most of the teeth on either of the two arches of the mouth.

Fixed Partial Dentures

Most patients missing only a few teeth opt for “fixed partial,” also known as “crown and bridge.” These must be precisely installed, especially when in between healthy teeth.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures are different from fixed partial dentures in that they are normally only used by people who have lost too many teeth for fixed dentures, but too few for a full fix.

What Are the Side effects?

Most people find that it takes some time to adjust to dentures. Adapting to dentures is not only possible, it is rewarding. With time, things like chewing and speaking can be comfortable and easy. Broadway Family Dentistry will work with you to make your transition is as smooth as possible.
