Dentures in Fort Smith, AR

The loss of one or more teeth can result in several concerns, including a loss of confidence in your smile.

At Harper Dental we offer smile restoration treatments, including dental implants and dentures.

There are several options for dentures in Fort Smith AR.

The option that is right for you will depend largely on factors that are specific to your dental health.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are oral appliances that are custom-made to fit the mouth of each patient.

They replace the missing teeth while restoring the lost oral functions and aesthetics.

Dentures can be full or partial. A full denture is the option selected when the patient is missing most or all of their teeth. A partial denture is the option selected when just a few teeth have been lost.

Dentures will need to be made in an off-site laboratory after our dentist gets the right measurements to assure you of a good fit.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures can be customized to match your unique smile and facial anatomy.

You can choose from full or partial dentures that are more aesthetically pleasing than those of the past. In fact, with today's cosmetic dentistry advances, no one will ever know that your teeth are not real.

Dentures are an excellent example of dental work that can significantly offer improved aesthetics. Dentures allow you to enjoy a complete and beautiful smile without the cost or invasiveness of surgical dental implants.

With carefully matched colors and textures, your new dentures will look completely natural and blend seamlessly with your remaining natural teeth.

Apart from that, dentures provide improved comfort. When cared for properly, modern artificial teeth offer superior fit and comfort compared with older varieties of removable prosthetics.

They are made thinner nowadays, to feel lighter in your mouth.

Types of Dentures

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are prosthetic teeth on a plastic base that is shaded to blend with the color of the gums. The full set of teeth could be porcelain or plastic.

Traditional full dentures are held in the mouth by a denture adhesive that forms a bond between the gums and the dentures. Dentures can also be secured with dental implants that are strategically placed in the jaw.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures feature several prosthetic teeth supported by a metal framework or a plastic base. Partial dentures are typically secured with clasps and rests that are adapted around the remaining natural teeth.

Some partial dentures can be removed by the patient, while others are bonded in place until the dentist removes them.

Partial dentures are a viable option for patients who would like to get dental implants but need some time before they can pursue that course of treatment.

The Process of Getting Dentures

The processes for getting complete and partial dentures will differ slightly. Each will require a consultation with our dentist and an appointment to get impressions made.

Complete dentures will involve molds of the gums that will be supporting the dentures.

Partial dentures will involve molds taken of the gums and the teeth surrounding the gap where the partial denture will be set.

The molds will be sent to an off-site laboratory that will build the dentures, based on the impressions that were taken. It can take several weeks to receive the completed dentures.

At this point, you will return to our office to be fitted with the dentures. Some minor adjustments may be needed, to ensure that you have the most comfortable fit.
