Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Full and Partial Dentures

How can we help you?

Information and education are the keys to good health. Just as we believe in continuing education for ourselves, we recommend that our patients learn about their dental health. We are always happy to discuss your care with you, and we will never perform a procedure until you’ve been informed about the procedure we are treating and have given us your approval to proceed.

If you have a question, take a look at this selection of questions we are often asked about our practice, the services we offer, and dentistry in general. If your question isn’t answered here or if you need more information, you are always welcome to give us a call or send us an email using our convenient online form.

Full and Partial Dentures

In our Royal Oak, MI dental office, we offer both full and partial dentures. Our aesthetically appealing full and partial dentures fit beautifully because they are customized to fit your mouth.

However, full and partial dentures are different, and choosing the right option is based on your unique situation.

Full Dentures

Full dentures work when all of your teeth are missing or extracted. A full denture is a top and bottom plate filled with life-like restorations to give you a beautiful smile.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures work when only some of your teeth are missing, and those that remain are strong, healthy, and viable enough to support a partial denture.

A partial denture is anchored to your surrounding natural teeth, and well-placed restorations on your partial denture fill in the gaps where teeth are missing. The results are a seamless smile.  

Implant-Supported Dentures

If you’re looking for a more permanent smile restoration, our top Royal Oak dentist offers implant-supported dentures.

In this case, a few well-placed titanium posts implanted in your jaw are strong enough to support an entire row of new teeth!

Dentures and partial dentures | Royal Oak MI

If you are missing teeth, dentures will actually probably make you look younger. 

Today's dentures are created to look much more realistic than those you might remember from your grandmother's nightstand. The teeth and gums are naturally colored, and the teeth are individually placed to create variation consistent with the appearance of actual teeth. 

Replace Missing Teeth | Royal Oak DentistIt depends a great deal on your needs and your goals. What's right for another person may not be right for you. When you have your consultation with Dr. Chalasani, she'll discuss your options and the advantages (and disadvantages) of each one to help you make your decision. 

Your options may include:

  • Bridges, which can replace one or more missing teeth with ceramic lookalikes and are held in place using crowns
  • Partials or dentures, which can affordably replace multiple teeth 
  • Dental implants, which look just like natural teeth and prevent bone loss
