Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Our team can help you figure out whether or not dentures are a good treatment for you. Before we make any recommendations, we’ll examine your mouth and determine how many teeth are missing (or are damaged so badly that they need to be removed). We’ll also need to check your gums and make sure that they’re healthy. Then, based on your needs, we may suggest getting a partial denture, a full denture, or an implant denture.
Types of Dentures
No matter what kind of denture you get, rest assured that it will be made to blend in with the rest of your smile and that we’ll design it to feel as comfortable as possible while you’re using it for chewing, speaking, and smiling. Here’s what you need to know about each kind of denture:
Sometimes, you might still have some teeth remaining, but there could still be large gaps that need to be filled. A partial denture is designed to fit neatly into these spaces to re-complete the arch. Many partial dentures have an acrylic base that is supported by a metal frame for additional stability.
You’re likely familiar with full dentures, which are used when no natural teeth remain in the arch in question. The base of your full dentures will be made to resemble the soft tissues around them. It will sit directly on your gums and use natural suction to stay in place. (Denture adhesives are also available if you feel that you need them.)
We can combine full and partial dentures with dental implants in order to create a new smile that functions as naturally as possible. In many cases, implant dentures are fixed in place, so you never have to worry about taking them out of your mouth and possibly dropping them.
The Benefits of Dentures
Having a full set of teeth again thanks to dentures can make your life easier in a variety of ways. There are the immediate benefits of being able to chew a variety of foods and speak normally. Other advantages include:
- Being an affordable way to replace multiple teeth.
- Helping you look younger.
- Requiring only simple maintenance.
- Being able to last for many years (assuming that you’re taking good care of them).
