Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures are an ideal option for people who have lost several, most of, or all of their teeth. If you find daily tasks challenging, like chewing your food, enunciating your words, and smiling with confidence, you could benefit from dentures. Depending on how many teeth you are missing and where they are located in the mouth, a customized treatment plan will be made just for you. If you currently have another oral health issue, like cavities or gum disease, these will need to be addressed ahead of time. We will always prioritize your dental health!
Types of Dentures
There are a few different types of dentures to cater to a variety of needs. During your initial consultation with us, we will determine which of the following options is ideal for you.
Partial dentures are made up of several replacement teeth and a gum-colored base. This type of denture fits between the existing teeth like a puzzle piece to fill in the spaces. To remain in place, partial dentures are attached to the natural teeth with the help of clips of brackets.
Full dentures are made to replace an entire arch of missing teeth – either on the top or the bottom. They remain in place because of the natural shape and suction of the mouth. If you need additional support, denture adhesive is also available to provide stability. Traditional full dentures are removable, so you can take them out to clean them and while you sleep.
Implant dentures are supported by dental implants. The implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They keep your replacement teeth anchored in place, eliminating the need for any adhesive or clasps. Dental implants also help to stimulate the jawbone, preventing the progression of bone resorption caused by missing teeth. The additional stability you get for implants also allows for patients to regain up to 70% (or more!) of their natural bite force. Implant dentures are also made to last for many decades, so you don’t have to worry about repairs or replacements.
