Replacing missing teeth is a personal decision that comes with many emotions for people. At Sauk Trail Dental, Dr. Ott and her team understand the thoughts and emotions associated with tooth loss and are committed to helping patients through every step of the process.
Many patients remember the dentures that older people in their lives wore and fear the slipping, sliding and embarrassment that was once the norm. With today’s denture options, those problems are in the past! Dr. Ott will work with you to customize your denture to be natural looking and fit well.
Partial dentures are designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They are held in place by clasps that fit naturally and comfortable around the remaining teeth. Partial dentures restore appearance and chewing function. They are removable for daily cleaning and are examined as part of your regular dental care visits with Dr. Ott and her hygienists.
Full dentures are designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth. They are held in place by a suction effect created when the denture is inserted into the mouth. Full dentures restore appearance and chewing function. They are removable for daily cleaning and require regular dental exams by Dr. Ott to maintain good fit and appearance.
While the fit and appearance of traditional dentures has improved greatly, some patients prefer a more permanent solution. Dental implants can be placed to secure the denture. The denture is snapped into place over the dental implants providing the highest level of stability and function.
