Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures can be a suitable option for anyone who is either missing several teeth in one arch or an entire row of teeth. However, if only one or two teeth are missing, a dental bridge might be a better choice. Additionally, dentures require a sufficient amount of healthy gum tissue to support them. If you schedule a consultation at our office, we’ll examine your mouth and carefully consider your situation before we help you determine whether dentures are truly right for you.
Types of Dentures
“Getting dentures” doesn’t mean exactly the same thing for everyone; there are multiple kinds of dentures to choose from. Our team can review the available options with you and make a recommendation based on your needs; we can also give you an estimate of how much your new teeth will cost.
Partial dentures are used when only some of your teeth are missing. They are designed to fit snugly into the gaps in your smile, and they are attached to your remaining teeth using clasps. The base of your partial dentures will be colored to match your gums, and the teeth they support will be shaded to blend in with the rest of your smile.
A full denture is necessary when you have either lost all of your teeth or if you don’t have enough healthy natural teeth remaining in the arch. Full dentures are made out of the same lifelike materials as partial dentures, but instead of using clasps, they are designed to stay on your teeth via natural suction; you can also use denture adhesive to help them stay in place.
Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone so that they can mimic the roots of your natural teeth. When dentures are anchored to implant posts, they will not slip, and they’ll be able to handle most foods. While traditional partial dentures and full dentures are removable, implant dentures can be made to stay in your mouth at all times.
The Benefits of Dentures
Dentures remain a trusted tooth-replacement solution due to the many advantages they offer. Obviously, there are aesthetic benefits to filling in the empty space in your mouth with natural-looking new teeth. However, dentures can also help you improve your overall health by making it easier to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods. Furthermore, they are very easy to clean, and they can last for a decade or longer with the right care. And of course, there’s the financial aspect to bear in mind; dentures are considered a very cost-effective way to replace several teeth at once.
