Nearly 30% of people over the age of 75 have lost all of their teeth. That makes 45 million denture-wearing Americans. Dental science has advanced to meet the growing demand, and today, we have beautiful, durable dentures and partials that last.
Dentures and partials are artificial teeth on a gum colored base. Dentures replace all of the teeth, while partials only replace a few. Dr. Hortman custom designs dentures and partials at our Little River dental office. She can also repair broken or damaged dentures and partials, often in a single visit.
Typically, dentures are secured with over-the-counter adhesives, and partials are secured with inconspicuous clasps. For ideal support and function, Dr. Hortman may recommend dental implants. Dental implants are small, titanium posts that permanently anchor dentures and partials.
