A denture or a partial denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. It is usually made from acrylic and may contain other materials such as metal or porcelain. Dentures may be a treatment option for you if you are missing many teeth, or have many teeth with a hopeless or poor prognosis.
The fit and function of dentures can be drastically improved with the placement of dental implants. At our office our general dentists are able to coordinate your case with our in-house periodontist, Dr. Pearlstein, who will surgically place the implants needed to improve retention, function, and speech.
