Removable Dentures & Partials
When you’re missing a significant number of teeth, even simple, essential tasks like eating and speaking can become embarrassingly difficult. Here at Columbia Healthy Smiles, we offer several restorative solutions that can give you back the security and strength you need in a set of teeth. Dentures have been the go-to method for tooth replacement for many years, and today, many patients still prefer their convenience and reliability. Dr. Philip Batson can design a comfortable, custom-made full or partial denture for patients in Columbia, MO and beyond who’d like to regain a whole, beautiful smile fast.
Like the name implies, a full denture is designed to replicate an entire arch of teeth or even the entire mouth. It stays securely in place with natural suction; a little bit of denture adhesive can be used for additional confidence. The prosthetic is easily removable as well, allowing for easy cleaning and storage.
Partial dentures can be used to replace a unique arrangement of teeth on a certain arch so that patients can still maintain what’s left of their natural smile. They stay in place with the help of clips and brackets, and like full dentures, they’re removable.
