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
Partial dentures and full dentures are both highly affordable ways to replace your teeth after extensive tooth loss. They can be designed and placed relatively quickly compared to other restorations. Once they’re in place, your diet options will expand, and you’ll have a natural-looking smile that you don’t have to be shy about showing to the world. Partial dentures will stop the remaining teeth from shifting out of place and weakening as a result; they’ll also make sure that the forces of the bite continue to be evenly distributed. Full dentures can provide support to facial structures that have collapsed without your teeth.
Implants can make dentures even more stable and reliable, and they’ll let you eat virtually any food comfortably. They can also last for a very long time – normally decades – while only requiring minimal maintenance in the form of regular brushing, flossing, and checkups.
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.
- If your dentures slip out of place, gently bite down and swallow.
