Dentures in Tampa, FL, are an excellent way to replace missing teeth, restoring your bite force and smile aesthetics. They are time-tested and practical. Additionally, today’s dentures look natural and fit beautifully.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures are one of the most affordable tooth replacement options in Tampa, FL. At North Tampa Dentistry, we create dentures from direct impressions of your mouth, so they fit snuggly but comfortably.

Dentures are also easy to care for and require little maintenance. You simply soak them in a denture bath during the night and ensure they’re clean during the day. Many patients opt to rinse their dentures after meals or clean them with a special brush and denture polish.

Types of Dentures to Meet Your Needs

Modern dentures offer a variety of choices. For example, we offer complete, partial, and implant-supported dentures to help meet the needs of all patients.

Complete dentures are restoration teeth on a gum-colored plate or appliance. The denture fits over the gum, relying on gravity and suction for support. The partial denture works similarly but only fills in where teeth are missing. Partial dentures are for partial tooth loss and have special clips for added stability.

Talk to your Tampa dentist about implant-retained dentures if you’re looking for a more stable or fixed solution. This method depends on four to six dental implants to secure the denture to the jaw.

Replacing Missing Teeth with Dentures

Before deciding on dentures, you must schedule a consultation with your dentist in Tampa to ensure they suit your needs and goals. At this consultation, Dr. Roberto Bellegarrigue, DMD can explain the benefits of each tooth replacement option, helping you to make an informed decision for your smile.
