Missing teeth can cause a host of problems. Therefore dentures are not just cosmetic they are restorative. Dentures or partials can help with difficulty speaking and eating and jawbone deterioration due to missing teeth. Don’t give up on your smile. While dentures are a complete top or bottom row of teeth, a partial denture or removable ridge, replaces one or more missing teeth. Dr. Schmieder will evaluate your condition and needs to determine the best option for you.
