Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures can benefit almost anyone who is struggling with the consequences of missing teeth, such as limited chewing power and a lack of self-confidence. During your consultation, we will examine your mouth to make sure that your gums and jawbone are healthy enough to support a prosthetic. If you are not a candidate for dentures right away, you might become one after some preparatory treatments. Then, we can get to work on designing your beautiful new set of teeth!

Types of Dentures

When you visit us for a consultation, we will learn about your oral health, your budget, and your personal preferences. From there, we will be able to recommend a specific type of denture that will fulfill your unique needs. We might suggest that you receive a partial denture, full denture, or implant denture.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture fits in around the remaining natural teeth. It can fill in multiple gaps with a single prosthetic. Usually, partial dentures consist of an acrylic base, artificial teeth, and small metal or acrylic clasps that help them to stay in place during eating and speaking.

Full Dentures

A full denture’s job is to replace either all of the upper or lower teeth. Typically, they consist of an acrylic base along with acrylic or porcelain teeth. They are always carefully customized to fit a patient’s unique mouth. Natural suction or mild adhesive helps them to stay in place.

Implant Dentures

A dental implant is a small cylinder, or post, made of a titanium alloy. Once it is inserted into the jawbone, it can serve as a prosthetic tooth root. With a few strategically placed implants, we can provide an incredibly strong base of support for dentures. Implant dentures tend to last longer and provide greater function than their non-implant counterparts.
