Dentures today are available from Dr. Patterson in a variety of different materials, and as full dentures or partial dentures. These removable replacements for teeth are usually recommended when dental bridges or dental implants are not appropriate. Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on the top or bottom of the mouth, while partial dentures are used in connection with existing natural teeth. Dentures may be made with plastic, porcelain, or a combination of materials. Dr. Patterson will review and explain all options for you, and help you to select the most appropriate material, if dentures are necessary in order to maintain eating ability, or for aesthetic purposes.
