At Social Circle Dental, we believe education is empowering. Therefore, we do all we can to educate patients about all of their options. One of the treatments available for replacing missing teeth and surrounding tissues is dentures. We are happy to explain the types of dentures available in our office near Covington, GA.
We use partial dentures to replace one to several teeth. Partial dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, as well as prevent other teeth from drifting out of position. Partial dentures are created to blend naturally with the smile.
We use complete dentures to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. We take our time to ensure precise fit and ideal appearance of dentures before they are placed. Dr. Jones will make a wax-up of the dentures to ensure the patient is comfortable with them. Then, dentures are fabricated at a high quality dental laboratory.
Another option for patients is implant-supported dentures. they are fitted with special snaps. A patient can snap the denture in place, and they will not slide or fall out. Implant-supported dentures provide the most stability to denture wearers. Dr. Jones will work with an oral surgeon, who places the implants into the jawbone. After the jawbone has healed, Dr. Jones places the dentures on top of the implants.
Finding the right dentures
To determine the right type of dentures for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Jones. He will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums, and review your medical history. We may take impressions of the mouth and x rays of the jawbone and soft tissues. We can use an intra-oral camera to examine conditions that may be undetected with the unassisted eye. We can then display the images on a computer screen to aid us in the discussion of a recommended treatment plan.
Go after the smile you want, and schedule your consultation by calling 770-464-1900. Rest assured you are in excellent hands with Dr. Jones, who has transformed smiles for 45 years. Patients come from adjacent states for Dr. Jones’ gentle care and conservative approach to dentistry.
