Dentures have been around for a long time and are an effective option to replace missing teeth. Because of advancement in dental technology, dentures are very natural looking and blend almost perfectly with your other natural teeth. They can be removed when needed. A patient’s ability to eat and speak is restored because of lost teeth. Dentures give a beautiful smile back to those that have lost teeth.
If dentures are what you may need, Dr. Mark Knight and his staff at Knight Dental Care can help you determine which of the two choices is best for your needs.
- Partial dentures – Purpose is to replace only some teeth. Replacement teeth will be interspersed among the remaining natural teeth. Partial dentures are similar to dental bridges but can be removed unlike bridges that are permanently in place.
- Complete dentures – Many refer to complete dentures as false teeth. This treatment replaces all of the patient’s teeth because of loss or severe damage.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
The greatest benefit of dentures is to restore your beautiful smile and give you confidence again. Having a full set of teeth will help in chewing and talking naturally which will give a major boost to your confidence when interacting socially and professionally. If well cared for, dentures will last for years to come and give you that sought after confident smile.

Dr. Mark Knight and his staff at Knight Dental Care will inform you of the best way to care for your new dentures. This will involve soaking them each night in a glass of water with dental cleaning tablets.
