Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures could be a good fit for you if you have lost most or all of the teeth in your upper and/or lower jaw. You will need healthy gums to support your prosthesis, so our team will take the time to check your mouth for any problems that might need to be addressed. There’s more than one way to replace missing teeth, and as such we’ll make sure that you’re fully informed of your options so that you can pick the one that truly fits your needs.
Types of Dentures
One of the things will discuss during your initial consultation is which type of denture you should get. Traditional partial and full dentures are available, but it’s also worth checking to see if you qualify for implant dentures. We’ll take the time to explain the advantages of each type of denture as well as what the cost will look like.
A partial denture is customized to fill in multiple gaps in a single arch. The base is made out of gum-colored acrylic, and metal clasps are used to help keep the prosthesis attached to your natural teeth. You can take a traditional partial denture out of your mouth at any time to clean it.
A full denture is meant to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. It rests directly on the gums and stays in place with the help of natural suction. Like partial dentures, full dentures are designed to be removable; it’s recommended that you take them out every night before you go to bed.
An implant denture is anchored to four or more dental implants. Said implants will mimic the functions of natural tooth roots, thus keeping your new teeth in place while also preventing bone loss in your jaw. Some implant dentures are removable, but others are meant to stay in the mouth at all times.
