In the category of removable dentures you usually have two options: a removable partial denture and full or complete denture. A complete denture is for patients who don’t have teeth on either the top jaw or the bottom jaw, whereas a removable partial denture is for patients who still have some of their own teeth remaining, and want to replace those missing teeth with a removable option.
An RPD can be made out of two different materials – cast metal with acrylic or a flexible material (Valplast). Fortunately, we can design both types to be highly esthetic.
We will discuss your specific treatment needs with you, but we often recommend the cast metal partial with acrylic because it is the stronger of the two types of removable dentures, and it can be tightened and repaired easily if needed. For patients who are only missing a few teeth, however, the flexible-type may be a better approach.Get in Touch
I love the compassion and quality of care you guys give. However the last visit I had my regular cleaning and went to check out only to find out that there was a additional charge. I Fully expected to pay for the Nitrous but the additional charge I was never told of prior to check out..thanks
I absolutely love this dental practice, and I have had a phobic fear of dental procedures my entire life!, ( terrible experience as a child). The waiting lobby is inviting, spacious, very clean, calming and well appointed, as are all of the treatment rooms. Also, EVERY member of the staff is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and thorough, they know their stuff! Lastly, Dr. Washington is a wonderfully competent and confident dentist. He has an excellent chair-side manner. He thoroughly explains each procedure. And, he is also has a gentle touch,and is very respectful of my mouth. In short, I highly recommend Lake Lanier Smiles!
People are always nice and professional. Dr Washington is very competent and helpful.
The staff is very professional. The hygienist is great, I did not feel like my teeth were being pulled while being cleaned like i have with previous dental offices. Dr Washington was great as well, very professional and caring. I highly recommend this Practice to anyone. I had a bad experience with another Dental office where the Dentist drilled through my tooth into my gum and nerves. I do not have that fear coming to this office and will be returning there to have some more work done very soon! Thank You for helping me overcome my fear of the chair Lake Lanier Smiles.
