Dentures & Partials Can Complete Your Smile
Dr. Michael Ryan Crafts Beautiful Results for Tooth Replacement at Ryan Dental Group
Dr. Michael Ryan of Ryan Dental Group in Allen, Texas is a prosthodontist, which means that he spent years after receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree studying tooth replacement and repair with dental prosthetics. When you’re looking for a denture, partial denture, or other form of tooth replacement, you’ll want to consider visiting with a prosthodontics specialist like Dr. Ryan to ensure that you get great results, both esthetically and functionally.
A denture or partial denture (often simply referred to as a partial) is a removable dental prosthetic that can replace all or some of the teeth along either your upper or lower arch (or both). Dentures are different from fixed bridges or dental implants in that they are not bonded to the teeth or jaw in any way, although we can place dental implants to help retain your removable denture. Dr. Ryan will use his experience and extensive training as a prosthodontist to create dentures and partials that fit like a dream, helping you feel comfortable in your new smile. Also, using the most modern materials available, your denture or partial from Ryan Dental Group will be amazingly lifelike.
Dentures and partials can offer a more cost-effective alternative to dental implants and bridges. They also may be recommended for patients who are not candidates for dental implants or bridges for one reason or another. We don’t want you to feel that a denture or partial is an inferior form of tooth replacement; instead, look at it as just another option on the menu at our Allen, Texas dental office, giving you the ultimate freedom of choice. We do, however, encourage patients to check into the benefits of dental implants. We can even fit you for an implant-retained denture to give you the best of both worlds!
An implant-retained denture is exactly what it sounds like – a removable dental prosthetic secured by dental implants instead of suction or adhesives. Implant-retained dentures use a few implants to support the denture, which snaps into place on specially designed dental implant posts or a bar that curves around the arch. With implant-retained dentures, patients gain confidence and find a solution that fits their specific situation perfectly.
Whether you’re considering a denture, partial denture, dental implants, or a bridge, we encourage you to visit Ryan Dental Group in Allen, Texas to explore your options and make the most out of your tooth replacement and restorative dental treatment. Dr. Michael Ryan offers prosthodontics for Parker, Plano, Lucas, McKinney, Fairview, and other Texas communities surrounding Allen. Contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ryan today.
