Do I Need Dentures?
If most or all of your teeth are missing or severely decayed, dentures may be needed to restore your smile, health and speech. The dentists in our O’Fallon dental office design dentures that remarkably resemble natural teeth. Advances in dental technology provide us the opportunity to custom-fit dentures that restore bite function and allow you to eat the foods you love. If you have been living with missing teeth or older, poorly fitting dentures, the clarity of your speech may have been affected. These issues can be corrected and your natural speech can be restored with new dentures.
Depending upon how many teeth need to be replaced, we will discuss your options for replacement which may include dental implants, partial dentures or full dentures. You can read more about dental implant options on our dental implant page. Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth while full dentures replace all of the teeth in the top and/or bottom arch of your mouth. Partial dentures are attached to your surrounding teeth with precision attachments or metal clasps. Full dentures are made to fit intimately over the gums. Dr. Logan employs the latest technologies in dentistry to provide dentures that look and feel more like natural teeth. Implant supported dentures are a relatively new technology, blending state-of-the-art materials and science to provide a bite so strong and dentures so stable that patients often mention feeling as though they have their natural teeth back.
