Sandwich Dentures

If you are living with partial or complete tooth loss, you’re not alone. According to the
American College of Prosthodontists, 120 million people across the United States are
missing at least one tooth, and 36 millions are completely edentulous. Fortunately, with
advanced approaches in prosthodontic care, we can help reestablish a beautiful, complete
smile and highly functional occlusion. With Sandwich dentures, we can recreate the
appearance and function of natural teeth to improve your health, self-image and quality of

Sandwich Dentures

Tooth loss can be attributed to a number of causes, including periodontal disease,
traumatic injury or extensive tooth decay. Furthermore, the prevalence of tooth loss is
shown to increase with age, with 27% of people over the age of 65 living without any
teeth. Without a complete set of teeth, it may be difficult to enjoy a varied, nutritious diet,
which can take a toll on your overall health. You may also feel self-conscious about
smiling or speaking when you meet new people. By replacing missing teeth with
Sandwich dentures, fixed bridges or dental implants, we can help you to eat, smile and
speak with renewed ease and confidence. For some patients, dentures are the chosen
method of care. A denture consists of artificial teeth set in a supportive, acrylic base,
which is designed to fit over your gums. While a complete denture can replace all of the
upper or lower teeth, a partial denture may be indicated when a few sturdy teeth remain.
