Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Are you missing multiple teeth? Are you without an entire row? No matter how many teeth you’re missing, there is a good chance that you’ll be eligible to receive partial or full dentures. Typically, we can replace multiple non-consecutive missing teeth with a partial, while a full denture is recommended for complete arch replacement.
Of course, before moving forward with the creation and placement of these prosthetics, you must first meet with your denture dentist to discuss your oral and overall health as well as how much jawbone density exists to support your new teeth.
Types of Dentures
Although dentistry is rapidly advancing, there are only three types of dentures that you can choose from:
Consisting of an acrylic, gum-colored base, artificial teeth, and a metal framework, partial dentures work like a puzzle piece. Designed to fill in the spaces left behind by missing teeth, this prosthetic attaches to healthy teeth, allowing it to fit in nicely and successfully recreate a complete, functional, and beautiful smile.
Crafted much in the same way as partials, full dentures do not contain the metal framework within the acrylic base. Instead, the prosthetics are made to fit snugly in place using natural suction. Many patients also turn to denture adhesive for added protection, especially when eating and/or speaking.
While full and partial dentures rely on additional products or healthy teeth to help hold them in place, implant dentures are vastly different. Instead of altering other areas of the mouth to ensure that your tooth replacement is a success, we only need the vacant sockets to position and place each implant post. Made of titanium, they fuse with the jawbone tissues to create a firm and stable foundation.
Benefits of Dentures
Throughout the centuries, individuals have benefited from dentures. While the materials that are used to create them have changed (thankfully) over time, they maintain the same goal – to create complete, healthy smiles.
If you are considering dentures to replace your missing teeth, a few of the advantages you can expect include:
- Greater bite force and chewing power allow you to eat coarser foods.
- Prosthetics that can last up to a decade or longer depending on the type of care you provide.
- Improved confidence in your appearance because of how full and comfortable your smile is.
- A more well-balanced diet.
- Better overall and oral health, as these prosthetics are easy to clean and manage.
