Dentures and Flippers
Our office makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available- complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A flipper can be an affordable solution for those with missing teeth who are interested in something a little less permanent than a bridge or an implant. They act like a retainer with a natural-looking tooth (or teeth) on it.
