Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Before you can be fitted for dentures, you need to have a consultation visit with our team. They’ll examine your teeth and gums to determine your oral condition, as well as learn about your medical history and dental needs. If they find any areas of concern, like tooth decay or gum disease, they’ll work with you to address it before proceeding. Then, they’ll provide recommendations to help you reach your goals and replace your lost teeth.

Types of Dentures

Fortunately, dentures are a versatile solution that can be completely customized to suit your unique circumstances. Our experts will suggest one of the following types based on their findings during your examination:

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used for mouths that have lost several teeth but still have some remaining. These are built to fill in the gaps for a seamless appearance. Made from a gum-colored acrylic base, they are often supported by metal for added strength. Yours will be specifically designed to hold the correct number of false teeth (pontics) needed to restore your grin. They anchor to your existing teeth and are easy to remove for cleaning.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are necessary when you have lost all of your natural teeth. They consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that contains an entire set of porcelain or ceramic pontics to entirely refurbish your smile. They are custom-built to fit against your gums closely to have enough suction to remain in place, though sometimes denture adhesive is needed for a firm grasp.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are the only type of permanent dentures because once they’re placed, they’re meant to stay. Instead of taking them out of your mouth to clean them, you’ll simply brush them and any remaining teeth as usual. This method involves surgically implanting titanium posts into your jawbone. They fuse with bone matter as they heal in a process called osseointegration which provides a firm foundation. Then, your dentures will be attached to these posts for maximum stability.

The Benefits of Dentures
