Our dental office is dedicated to helping you keep your smile healthy and beautiful. To accomplish this, we offer dentures in Leawood, Kansas. Dentures are appliances that replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Dentures prevent your facial muscles from sagging, which maintains the shape of your face. Dentures can be made to look like your natural teeth so your appearance will not change much. With our high-quality dentures, your smile is certain to be beautiful, healthy, and functional.
There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used to replace all of your teeth. If you still have a few natural teeth, Dr. Robert P. Sherman removes them and your gums are given time to heal. The complete denture is made while your gums and tissues are healing and will be placed about eight to twelve weeks after your teeth have been extracted. Partial dentures are used when some of your natural teeth remain. The placement of partial dentures prevents your remaining teeth from shifting. Removable partial dentures are replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. A metal framework holds the denture in place in your smile. A fixed partial denture replaces teeth by cementing crowns on the abutment teeth with pontics, or false teeth, in between.
