Dentures & Partials Charlotte, NC

Dentures & Partials An Overview

Charlotte dentist Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers options for replacing missing teeth using dentures, partials and implant dentures. These restorations are designed to fit comfortably and securely in the mouth and look just like natural teeth.

Types of Dentures

There are several types of dentures that Charlotte dentist Dr. Van Gurp offers. He will assess your condition, determine your goals and help you choose the type of denture that is right for you and your budget.

The types of dentures Dr. Van Gurp offers are highly aesthetic. Most people won’t realize you have a denture because it will look just like natural teeth. There are basically two types of dentures: Full Dentures and Partial Dentures. Either type can be fixed or removable. Fixed dentures are supported by dental implants.

  • Full Dentures replace all of a person’s upper or lower teeth.
  • A Partial Denture is like a dental bridge and replaces several consecutive missing teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers patients the option of implant dentures to replace all of their missing teeth. Working with a neighboring oral surgeon, Dr. Van Gurp will oversee the surgical placement of the implants and personally complete the restoration with a cosmetic denture. This type of procedure is sometimes called “Teeth in a Day” or “All on Four” and is typically completed in just one office visit.

Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures

Implant dentures have a 95% or better success rate and equally high level of patient satisfaction. While this procedure does require a greater initial investment compared to alternatives like removable dentures or bridges, implant dentures offer the best long term benefits.

  • Far improved retention and stablity
  • No restrictions of foods or diet
  • Promotes long term bone health
  • Allows patient to speak and smile naturally and comfortably
  • No glues or adhesives
