Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are designed to replace several or even all of the teeth along the top or bottom row. For people missing just one or only a few teeth, a dental bridge or dental implant crown is the better solution. One of the advantages of traditional dentures is that they can be made and placed relatively quickly without the need for surgery, meaning you won’t have to wait long to reclaim your smile and bite. 

Types of Dentures

different types of dentures

Tooth loss is different for every patient as is the shape of their mouth. That’s why we offer multiple options to choose from, and we’ll go over each of them at your initial consultation so you can select the version that best suits your situation.

Partial Dentures

Held in place using small clasps that loop around neighboring natural teeth, partial dentures are designed to fill multiple gaps like the missing piece of a puzzle. They are highly versatile and specially made for each patient.

Full Dentures

For patients missing all of their teeth on the top, bottom, or both, a full denture can bring back an entire dental arch at the same time. It sits directly on the gums and stays secure thanks to natural suction and perhaps some denture adhesive.

Dental Implant Dentures

Once in place, implant dentures look like the other two options listed above, but what makes them special lies below. With these, the teeth are rooted to the jawbone using small titanium posts that mimic the underlying structure of natural teeth. This prevents the prosthetic from slipping and also restores most of a patient’s bite force. Basically, they feel the closest to real teeth.
