Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures are a great choice for patients who are suffering from moderate to severe tooth loss. However, before you can be fitted for dentures, it’s important that your mouth is healthy. Issues like tooth decay in your remaining teeth and gum disease can make wearing dentures uncomfortable and put your mouth at risk of serious oral health issues. Once you’ve completed any necessary preliminary treatments to address these problems, we can move on to completing your smile with dentures.
Types of Dentures
You don’t have to be missing all your teeth to benefit from dentures! These custom-made restorations can be used to replace multiple missing teeth throughout the mouth as well as an entire arch of missing pearly whites. Depending on your oral health, personal goals, and the extent of your tooth loss, we may recommend one of three types of dentures:
If you still have some healthy teeth left, a partial denture can help complete your smile. Sometimes called partials, this type of denture is designed to fit perfectly around and between your natural teeth much like a puzzle piece. Small metal wires and brackets around your remaining tooth structure support the denture and hold your new teeth in place.
To replace an entire arch of missing teeth right away and all at once, you’ll want a full denture. For this option, your precisely crafted replacement teeth are set into a gum-colored acrylic base. Thanks to the close fit of the base over your gums, a strong natural suction is created to hold the denture in place while you talk, eat, and smile.
The most modern type of denture is an implant denture. Instead of resting on your gums or relying on your remaining teeth, this type of denture is anchored firmly in place with four to six dental implants. These small metal posts are inserted directly into your jawbone to create a sturdy and stable foundation. During your consultation, we’ll review your jawbone and oral health to see if you’re a candidate for implant dentures.
