Dr. Ishimoto - DenturesDentures act as artificial teeth to replace your missing natural teeth. If an accident or disease has claimed your teeth, the Dentistry Lahaina team might suggest dentures as a viable tooth replacement option. Dentures come in two types: partial and complete. To fit you with a comfortable pair of dentures, your dentist can take impressions to make a model that will be customized to fit your smile perfectly.

Partial dentures, also referred to as “removable partial denture prostheses” or “partials,” may be used when neighboring teeth lack the strength to sustain a dental bridge, or when a few teeth are missing. Partial dentures contain a few artificial teeth that are supported by clasps, which fit onto your natural, nearby teeth. Partial dentures are easily removable so that they can be cleaned at night to help you enjoy optimal oral hygiene.
