Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If you have an incomplete upper or lower arch or are missing an entire row of teeth, there’s a high probability that you’ll be recommended for dentures. A consultation with a member of our team will determine your needs and which type of denture you can expect to receive. The sooner you undergo treatment, the greater your chances of avoiding more serious oral health issues later on (i.e., gum disease, decay, etc.).

Types of Dentures

How many teeth you are missing will ultimately determine the type of denture that you need. At our dental office, we offer partial, full, and implant prosthetics, each of which is designed according to your specifications.

Partial Dentures

Using gum-colored acrylic as the base as well as a metal framework, artificial teeth are placed on top of the prosthetic in the areas where you are missing teeth. When placed within your mouth, it will work like a puzzle piece so that the gaps are filled, and the metal clasps will anchor to healthy abutment teeth.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are made from the same material but do not consist of metal clasps or clips. Instead, they stay in place with natural suction and denture adhesive. You’ll notice that your smile functions more naturally over time, allowing you to enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling once again.

Implant Dentures

Drastically different from full and partial dentures are those held in place by dental implants. Capable of lasting 30 years or more, implant dentures replace the complete root-to-crown structure while delivering continuous stimulation to the jawbone to avoid resorption. Not only are they permanent because they fuse with the bone, but they’re natural in appearance and function just like regular teeth.
