Dentures

There are different products designed to help replace your natural teeth, and at New Smile Magic in Chapel Hill, we’re frequently asked to explain the different terms. Generally speaking, dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. Complete dentures are used to replace a complete set of teeth. Partial dentures, also known as “partials,” replace only a few missing teeth. “Over-dentures” is another confusing term, but it’s simply the name for dentures that fit over a small number of your remaining natural teeth or implants.

Another area of confusion for patients is conventional dentures versus immediate dentures. With conventional dentures, Dr. Robinson makes and places them after the remaining teeth are removed and the tissues have healed. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. Dr. Robinson will address your unique situation with dentures that are perfect for your lifestyle and needs.

For more information about the different types of denture products and to help you determine which is right for you, make an appointment with Dr. Theresa Robinson by calling our Chapel Hill office today at (855) 444-5090.
