Believe it or not, dentures date back to at least the seventh century B.C. with the ancient Etruscans. Even after all this time, dentures remain a reliable and economical way to replace missing teeth for adults of any age. Our dentist, Dr. James McCall, can provide you with partial or complete dentures in Jacksonville, FL, and you can call James J McCall DDS PA at 904-620-9225 for your examination and consultation.
Dentures are a removable oral appliance that serve as a replacement for multiple missing teeth. If you are missing most or all your teeth, you may benefit from your own set of dentures. Dentures can restore the natural function and appearance of your smile and give you back your confidence in eating, speaking and smiling. Dentures can restore your facial volume, as missing teeth can cause your facial muscles to sag over time without support.
There are two types of dentures:
- Complete dentures are used to replace all the teeth in the upper and bottom arches. Depending on the condition of your smile, our dentist may recommend complete dentures to restore one or both of your arches and help you regain a full smile.
- Partial dentures are used if you have lost multiple teeth, but most of your natural teeth remain. A partial denture is a metal framework that attaches securely to your existing teeth to complete your smile.
Our dentist may recommend dentures if you have lost most or all your teeth. Dentures are a great choice for those who want to renew their oral health and enhance the appearance and function of their smile. To learn more about dentures, we invite you to contact our office today.
