Dentures and Partials

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Most adults dread losing their teeth and needing dentures. However, thanks to advances in dental technology, Allison Park Dentists, Dr. Joe Quartuccio and Dr. Charles Frye can provide you with complete or partial dentures that look natural, stay firmly in place, and are comfortable to wear on a daily basis.

Dentures are used to replace a full set of teeth, while “partials” are designed to attach to your remaining teeth using clasps or dental bridges.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic problem. They can also cause issues with the health and functionality of your smile. For example, your remaining teeth may drift into the empty space created by your missing teeth. When this happens, you are vulnerable to:

  • Damaged mouth tissues
  • Difficulty speaking and eating
  • Increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and future tooth loss
  • Sagging facial appearance

By replacing your missing teeth with dentures or partials, you are protecting your oral health both now and into the future. Best of all, you get to enjoy a full set of functional teeth, allowing you to speak, eat, and laugh with confidence again.

Creating the Perfect Fit

Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye’s neuromuscular dentistry training with the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) has given them the advanced insight and skill they need to create the perfect fit for your dentures or partials. By using neuromuscular principles and techniques, our Pittsburgh dentists can avoid common problems with dentures, such as:

  • “Floating” lower dentures
  • “Dropping” upper dentures
  • Slipping and rubbing
  • Damage to your surrounding teeth
  • Bite misalignment

The key to preventing all of these problems is a precise, custom fit. Our complete understanding of your bite’s alignment and the natural rest position of your jaw will influence all of the decisions we make when creating your dentures.

Other Tooth Replacement Options

While dentures are a great option for patients who have lost a significant amount of bone density, other patients may qualify for dental implants, which are an even better option for replacing missing teeth.
