Dentures in Mt. Pleasant, SC
Replacing missing teeth is not only an aesthetic issue, but it is also crucial to your continued oral health.
At Carolina Center for Restorative Dentistry, Dr. Mayur Patel provides a consultation to help you choose the best option to restore missing teeth, including dentures and partial dentures.
Top Quality Full and Partial Dentures
We offer full, partial and implant-supported dentures in Mount Pleasant, SC. Dr. Patel also relies on the latest technologies and techniques to provide a comfortable denture experience with predictable and functional results. With dentures and partials, our goal is your smile aesthetics and your ability to chew and smile with confidence, knowing that your denture works beautifully and complements your smile’s appearance.
Dentures represent a practical solution for complete tooth loss (or complete tooth loss following dental extractions). They are gum-colored plates or arches fitted with natural-looking prosthetic teeth. Upper dentures rely on suction and the natural ridges of your jaw for support. Lower dentures depend on gravity and, also, the ridges of your jaw for stability.
Partial dentures are arches or plates of restoring teeth. The restoring teeth are placed to match up where teeth are missing to give you a full smile. Partials depend on healthy remaining teeth and special clips for anchoring.
Sometimes patients are looking for a more stable solution—or a method that prevents denture slippage and the need for relines and adhesives. It is here that Dr. Mayur, your Mt. Pleasant implant specialist, combines dental implant technology with dentures. With only four to six implants, he can secure your denture, giving you peace of mind and a more stable smile.
The Process of Getting Dentures
Of course, we provide a consultation and discuss all tooth replacement options with you before moving forward.
If you decide on dentures or partials, we take digital impressions—no goopy materials—and use the results to fabricate a custom denture or partial.
If you need extractions, we always numb the treatment area thoroughly before starting the process, and recovery is usually quick—a few days of slight swelling and mild soreness.
When your denture or partial is ready, your prosthodontist makes all final adjustments, and then you are free to enjoy your new smile!
After treatment, Dr. Patel or a team member talks to you about denture care, including how to clean your prosthetic.
Upgrading to Modern Dentures
If you already have dentures or partials, it may be that you want to upgrade to a more modern prosthetic or an implant-supported denture.
Signs that it may be time for a replacement—other than your desire for a more modern tooth replacement—include:
- Cracks or chips in the denture or prosthetic teeth
- A loose-fitting denture that requires frequent relines or adhesives
