Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Having missing teeth can cause dramatic changes to your daily life. For one, you won’t be able to eat foods as easily or certain foods whatsoever. It can become more difficult to speak clearly and you may feel embarrassed to smile period. If you are missing several teeth on opposite sides of your mouth or all the teeth in either your top, bottom, or both arches, dentures may be right for you. You’ll also need to have healthy gum tissue so they can support the restoration.

Types of Dentures

There are three different types of dentures: full dentures, partial dentures, and implant dentures. A full denture is used when you’ve lost all of your top or bottom teeth, a partial denture is used when some teeth still remain, and implant dentures are intended for those who want a more stable and long-lasting tooth replacement. All come with their own unique differences, which are explored in more detail below:

Partial Dentures

Having large gaps in between teeth can lead to existing teeth shifting out of place and making your bite uneven. With a partial denture, you can rebuild your smile and prevent this side effect from occurring. Partial dentures consist of a metal base and a gum-colored component equipped with replacement teeth. The prosthetic effectively fits inside your mouth like a puzzle piece.

Full Dentures

A full denture is made up of a gum-colored based containing ceramic teeth, fully customized to the shape of your mouth, and replaces either the top arch, bottom arch, or both. It stays in place through natural suction to the gums rather than metal hooks wrapped around natural teeth (partial dentures) or dental implants (implant dentures).

Implant Dentures

The name truly speaks for itself: implant dentures attach to a series of dental implants that are surgically placed into the jaw ahead of time. This means your existing oral structures do not carry the weight of your prosthetic. While treatment can be more expensive, you won’t need a dedicated implant for each tooth you intend to replace.

The Benefits of Dentures

Why replace your teeth with a full denture or partial denture? If you've lost some or all of your teeth, it can seriously affect your ability to speak and eat properly and change the shape of your face, making you appear older. Dentures are fully customized to fill out the shape of your face and allow you to live without the pain and embarrassment of impaired speech and problems eating. We will make sure that your dentures are custom fit for the greatest comfort and esthetics possible.
