Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Missing teeth can adversely affect your daily life. You might find it difficult to chew your favorite foods, and you may hesitate to smile in public. You could even struggle to enunciate certain sounds. Dentures have the potential to help with all such issues; almost anyone with a significant degree of tooth loss can qualify for this treatment. Of course, during your consultation we will have to confirm that they are a good fit for your situation.

Types of Dentures

During your consultation, our team will examine your mouth and learn about your goals for treatment. Based on the information we gather, we will recommend the type of denture that best fits your circumstances. We might advise you to move forward with partial dentures, full dentures, or implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth throughout a dental arch. They fit in around the remaining natural teeth. Small acrylic or metal attachments help them to stay in place during eating and speaking. Usually, they consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and acrylic teeth.

Full Dentures

A full denture is a customized prosthetic that replaces all of the teeth throughout a dental arch. Full dentures typically have an acrylic base along with either acrylic or porcelain teeth. Natural suction or a bit of adhesive helps them to stay in place during daily activities.

Implant Dentures

Dental implants are small titanium cylinders, or posts, which get surgically inserted into the jawbone. They bond with the surrounding tissue and can then provide a sturdy base of support for a denture. Implant dentures are stronger, more stable, and longer-lasting than their traditional counterparts. We often recommend them as the best option for anyone who qualifies for the treatment.
