Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Extensive tooth loss can have significant consequences for both your health and daily life. For example, you might find it difficult to chew your favorite foods, and you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Dentures can help with such issues. As long as your gums and jawbone are healthy enough to support them, there is a good chance that this treatment could have big benefits for you! Of course, during your consultation we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine for sure which form of tooth replacement would best suit you.

Types of Dentures

We offer a few different types of dentures. During your consultation, we will examine your mouth and learn about your personal preferences and goals. Thereafter, we will be able to recommend your next steps. We might advise you to get partial dentures, full dentures, or implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

If some of your natural teeth are still healthy, you may be a great candidate for partial dentures. These prosthetics fit in around the other teeth. Small acrylic or metal attachments help them to stay in place during eating and speaking. Partials can serve as a placeholder for your natural teeth and improve your dental function.

Full Dentures

A full denture can replace either all of the upper or lower teeth. They typically consist of an acrylic base and acrylic or porcelain teeth. We carefully design them so they fit both snugly and comfortably. Natural suction or a bit of adhesive helps them to stay secure in the mouth during daily activities.

Implant Dentures

Instead of resting on top of the gums, implant dentures are anchored in the jawbone via small prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants). The implants bond with the jawbone, so they allow the teeth on top of them to have incredible strength and stability. We often recommend implant dentures as the gold standard of tooth replacement.

The Benefits of Dentures

Dentures come with many benefits:

  • Since each denture is fully customized, you can expect a comfortable fit and natural appearance.
  • Dentures can enable you to eat a wide variety of foods. You might have to change your eating techniques a little with traditional dentures, but you should still be able to enjoy most of your favorite treats.
  • Cleaning and maintaining dentures does not require a lot of time or effort.
  • Dentures are cost-effective.
  • By filling out your cheeks, dentures can help you to have a more youthful appearance.
