At Kenneth R. Russell D.D.S., P.A., we use dentures to replace missing teeth as well as improve our patients’ oral health and appearance. Dentures are most common in older patients who have missing teeth due to tooth decay, an injury, or gum disease. No matter how old you might be or why you are missing teeth, we can treat all good candidates for dentures.
What are dentures? They are removable appliances that look and feel like your natural teeth. Unlike dental implants, they are not surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum lime. Although that’s a more permanent solution, it’s also more costly and only recommended for certain patients.
