Full & Partial Dentures in Metairie LA
Do missing teeth make you feel awkward? Do you find yourself hiding your smile? When you're not comfortable showing your teeth, you start to realize how many of our social interactions involve smiling and laughing. Even sharing a meal with someone can be difficult and frustrating with missing teeth.
At Oak Family Dental, we offer several options for restoring your teeth and enhancing your smile. Some of our most popular tooth replacement options include dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures; we’ll spend some time going over your smile goals to design a functional and natural-looking smile you can be proud to show.
We Pay Attention to the Details
Old-fashioned dentures not only looked bulky and artificial, but they were also well-known to be uncomfortable and unreliable. Modern dentures are miles away from the fake look of past dentures; our Metairie dentists craft each new denture with such detail that they are natural-looking and realistic.
We are never satisfied until you are, which is why all our dentures are fitted to match your oral cavity perfectly. Your dentures should enable you to eat and chew your favorite foods again, speak with clarity, and smile often. At Oak Family Dental, we combine ultramodern dental technology with high-quality durable dental material to craft state-of-the-art dentures.
Getting dentures is an investment in time and money, and you should be thrilled with the final outcome. Our doctors will take the time to explain all your options as well as their advantages and disadvantages. However, you are always in total control of the direction your treatment takes. We support you in any decision you make and will work hard to deliver results that exceed your expectations.
All Your Dental Solutions in One Place
At Oak Family Dental, we have denture options to fit your lifestyle and needs. Some of our patients enjoy removable dentures, while others prefer permanent implant-retained dentures. The choice is yours, but we are happy to explain the process of either and which dental treatment is perfect for you.
We offer full or complete dentures for patients who are missing all their teeth in either their upper or lower arches.
Partial dentures are recommended for patients who are missing a few teeth but not all of them. Partial dentures anchor to neighboring teeth using teeth clasps to support the prosthetic.
While removable dentures instantly restore your smile and bite function, many patients dislike how these dentures can shift or move around. Implant-supported dentures can treat this issue by anchoring to your jaw bone and eliminate any movement.
During the implant process, we provide temporary replacement teeth, called "Teeth-in-a-day," to keep our patients smiling. You will never have to worry about living without teeth; we are always ready to craft a temporary smile while you wait for a permanent solution.
The best part of implant-supported dentures is that once the implant is fully secured, we can simply place your dentures directly into the implants. We work with a top oral surgeon in the area who removes your teeth, then places your implants – all while you’re comfortably sedated. When the process is complete, one of our doctors will fit your new dentures right there at the oral surgeon’s office.
Getting dentures is a gift you give yourself, and with proper care and maintenance can last a lifetime. We encourage all our patients to be active in their oral health, so we take the time to go through all your options and explain each procedure. In the end, the decision is up to you—you will always have the ultimate say in your smile treatment plant. We will always support your choices and will work with you to achieve your dream smile.
