Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are an ideal option for people who are missing several, most of, or all of their teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing and where they are located in your mouth, a personalized treatment plan can be created for you. Those who currently have dental issues, like tooth decay or gum disease, will need to have these issues addressed and eliminated before getting dentures. The oral health of our patients is always our top priority.

Types of Dentures

There are multiple different types of dentures available to cater to a variety of different tooth-replacement needs. During your consultation, we will discuss your options to choose the right tooth replacement option for you. Here are the dentures that we offer.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures work great for people who still have some healthy teeth in an arch. A partial denture fits in between the surrounding teeth, almost like a puzzle piece, and is held into place using clasps. This way, missing teeth in several different locations in the mouth can be replaced by a single prosthetic for each arch.

Full Dentures

A full denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. Instead of being held into place using clasps, full dentures remain stationary thanks to the shape and natural suction of the mouth. This type of denture is made with a gum-colored base and holds natural-looking replacement teeth into place.

Implant Dentures

If you are looking for a sturdier, longer-lasting tooth replacement option, dental implant dentures are an excellent solution. These dentures are held into place with titanium, screw-like implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act as tooth roots. They allow for additional bite force and prevent bone loss from occurring over time.
