Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
If you are missing many, most, or all your natural teeth, it’s very likely that you may be a good candidate for dentures. However, it is important that your mouth is healthy first. Since partial and full dentures rely on your gums and remaining teeth for support, these structures need to be healthy before we fit you with dentures. Once we’ve helped you address any issues like tooth decay or gum disease, we can begin designing your custom dentures. If you’re interested in implant dentures, you’ll also need to have good overall health and adequate jawbone density. We can discuss your candidacy for the different types of dentures and what preliminary treatments may be needed during your initial consultation.
Types of Dentures
Thanks to modern dental technology and materials, we can make dentures more customized than ever before! A gum-colored acrylic base is carefully designed to fit over your gums, and however many replacement teeth you need are securely set into it. Depending on your unique needs and preferences, we may recommend one of the following types of dentures:
Partial dentures, which are sometimes just call partials, are for patients who still have some healthy teeth remaining. A partial denture fits precisely around and between existing tooth structure like a puzzle piece to seamlessly fill in your smile.
A full denture is for patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth. The natural-looking replacement teeth are set into a base that’s crafted to fit snugly over the top of your gums. This creates a strong natural suction that will help keep your new smile in place.
Alternatively, you could anchor your full or partial denture in place with dental implants. These small titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone to replicate the roots of missing teeth, providing a strong, reliable foundation for the denture it supports. While implant dentures require more time and effort, they are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
