Dentures and Prosthodontics
Dr. Beischel has over 20 years experience working with dental prosthodontics. Our removable options include complete and partial dentures. We work with the best local labs the valley has to offer to create natural looking appliances for our patients.
A complete denture is used when all of a patient’s natural teeth are missing. They are typically made of a plastic base that is gum-colored and replacement teeth in a shade that is specifically chosen for you.
A partial denture is an appliance that is similar to the full denture but they are used when some of the patient’s natural teeth are remaining. The partial denture is also made of a plastic base that is gum-colored and replacement teeth but it will have clasps that connect to your existing teeth to help hold it into place. A partial denture not only fills in the gaps where a patient is missing teeth, but it also helps keep those remaining teeth from shifting or changing positions. Partial dentures can also be made for the upper or lower jaw.
