Types of Dentures
A denture is made of prosthetic teeth attached to a plastic gum-colored base. Different kinds of dentures are available depending on individual patient needs and preferences.
- Partial Dentures: If you have multiple missing teeth, partial dentures can fill in the gaps without needing to remove the rest of the arch. Metal clasps are used to attach the dentures to your natural teeth for added stability.
- Full Dentures: Traditional full dentures remain as useful as ever for replacing entire rows of teeth. Modern techniques have made full dentures even more comfortable, and they can be designed to fit securely on your unique gumline.
- Implant Dentures: We can anchor dentures to dental implants so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of teeth supported by roots that have integrated with the jawbone.
Benefits of Dentures
When someone is missing multiple teeth, it can be challenging to complete tasks they once found easy. This includes chewing their food, speaking clearly, and smiling with confidence.

Tips for Day-to-Day Use
- Never let your dentures dry out. When you take them out at night, be sure to soak them in a denture cleansing solution. Dry dentures could easily fracture.
- Brush your dentures on a regular basis. Don’t forget to brush the gums as well; bacteria can still build up in the space between the dentures and the tissue.
- Take the time to practice speaking with dentures; when you’re first getting used to them, it helps to repeat words that you have trouble pronouncing.
