Full and Partial Dentures in Arlington
Adjusting to life after tooth loss is a frustrating challenge faced by many people. The Dental Office at River House offers patients a variety of tooth replacement options to help restore their smiles to full function and beauty.
David P. Cote, DDS, has experience creating partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures. Patients from Arlington and the surrounding areas come to him for realistic prosthetic teeth to restore both form and function. Dr. Cote upholds a high standard of care by choosing denture materials carefully.
Many Options for Individualized Care
When creating a restoration, Dr. Cote thoughtfully considers the needs and expectations of his patients. For example, for full arch dentures, he prefers to use acrylic to preserve the patient’s bone health. A full set of porcelain dentures may put undue stress on a patient’s oral structure.
The Dental Office at River House has many options for patients to choose from, including:
Implant Supported Dentures – Dental implants help preserve jaw bone health and thus are one of our most highly recommended choices. When anchored by a dental implant, dentures gain stability and sturdiness that surpasses other restorations. This contributes to a sense of permanence and an overall higher rate of patient satisfaction.
Valplast® Flexible Partials – These comfortable metal-wire alternatives are generally more affordable than fixed restorations. Valplast’s unrivaled aesthetic quality makes them a preferred option for many patients needing to replace less than a full arch of teeth.
Partial Dentures – Metal wiring or a white framework can adequately support a set of partial dentures. Dr. Cote uses his skill and experience to construct your partial to be as discreet as possible.
Unsupported Dentures – Without the aid of a dental implant, unsupported dentures rely on adhesive paste or suction to stay in place. Many find this method to be satisfactory, but over time the dentures will need to be readjusted to accommodate jaw bone shrinkage.
