There are a couple of different kinds of dentures that help replace missing teeth. First, we will talk about flippers. If you have one or two missing teeth, a flipper would be the best option in terms of dentures. A flipper is a lightweight denture that is removable and typically has one or two teeth on it. Flippers are good for temporarily replacing teeth while you are in the process of getting a dental implant or looking for a cheaper way to replace your missing teeth.
The next option for a denture is a partial. A partial denture is a denture that is used to replace more than a couple of teeth. A partial is also removable and is typically made of either a flexible material or acrylic material. Finally, there are full dentures. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Dr. Greer strives to ensure that each patient is completely satisfied with their dentures and new teeth, so he will work with you to pick out the size, shape, and color of your new teeth on your denture. If you are someone in need of a denture, whether its a flipper, a partial or a full denture, call us today at Sweetwater Dentistry so that we can get started! 251-550-7770
