Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Most people who are missing several teeth or entire arches can be considered potential candidates for dentures. It’s best to have the gaps in your smile filled as soon as possible if you want to avoid oral health issues. If you schedule a consultation at our office, we can examine your mouth thoroughly and determine whether dentures are the best option for restoring your smile. We’ll be sure to let you know if there are any dental concerns – such as gum disease – that will need to be addressed as part of your treatment plan.
Types of Dentures
There are three main kinds of dentures: partial dentures, full dentures, and implant dentures. If you’re wondering, “Which kind is right for me?”, the answer largely depends on your unique circumstances. Here’s a brief overview of each kind of denture:
When you’ve lost several teeth along an arch, partial dentures can be crafted to fill in the gaps. These tooth replacement prosthetics use a gum-colored base material attached to remaining healthy dental structure to support the replacement teeth. They can be removed for cleaning and overnight storage and allow patients to retain healthy teeth while completing their smile.
Full dentures are crafted in the same way that partial dentures are made, using a gum-colored base material to support a full row of replacement teeth. Because there are no remaining healthy teeth, the denture is molded to fit firmly against the gum line, creating suction that holds the prosthetic in place. For added stability, some patients also use a small amount of denture adhesive.
For the best possible stability, an implant-retained partial or full denture may be the best solution. Small implant posts are placed into the gumline to mimic the lost roots of teeth, and they are attached to your partial or denture, recreating the natural, healthy function of your smile.
