If you are worried about getting permanent or partial dentures because they look fake and don’t stay in place, you are probably unaware of the modern false teeth available today! Dr. Steve Dugan of Dugan Family Dentistry PA in Wichita, Kansas, is a general and restorative dentist who can assist patients in finding solutions for their unique dental needs.

Patients who need to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the smile can ask about traditional dentures and partials available at our facility.

What are dentures and partials?

Dentures are the more common type of restoration that comes to mind for many of our patients. They are designed with high-quality acrylics to create false teeth and gums. These restorations are worn with natural suction, the use of denture adhesives, or in some cases, are made more permanent by using dental implants to hold them to the gums. Partials, on the other hand, sometimes referred to as partial dentures, replace one or several teeth in the arch. They use a metal framework that snaps into place with the remaining teeth, holding false teeth where they need to be to restore the smile. Both are affordable and reliable options for many of our patients.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for dentures and partials?

During an evaluation with Dr. Steve Dugan, patients undergo an examination during which the dentist will determine if an individual patient is a good candidate for these restorations. Other options may include dental bridges or implants, depending on the patient’s needs, budget, and lifestyle. Choosing the appropriate tooth replacement option for you has to be tailored to the most important aspects of restoration, whether it be the appearance of the restoration, the quality of the restoration, and the budget.
