Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are a great option for almost anyone who is struggling with the consequences of missing teeth, such as decreased chewing ability, a lack of confidence, and speech difficulties. When you visit us for a consultation, we will carefully examine your mouth to determine if dentures are right for you. If your gums and jawbone are in fair health, we may be able to move forward with rebuilding your smile!

Types of Dentures

There are multiple types of dentures. When you visit us for your consultation, we will consider the details of your situation before recommending which type of prosthetic you should receive. We might inform you that you are a good candidate for partial dentures, full dentures, or implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

As their name implies, partial dentures are not meant to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Rather, they fit in around the remaining natural teeth. They have an acrylic base and acrylic or porcelain teeth. Small metal or acrylic clips help them to stay in place during eating and speaking.

Full Dentures

A full denture replaces either all of the upper or lower teeth. Full dentures usually have an acrylic gum-colored base along with acrylic or porcelain teeth. They are carefully crafted to rest comfortably against the gums. Natural suction or a mild adhesive helps them to remain in place during daily activities.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are secured in the mouth with the help of prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants), which get surgically inserted into the jawbone. These prosthetics are extremely sturdy and offer a level of strength and stability that is not available with their traditional counterparts. We often recommend implant dentures as the best option for patients who are candidates for them.

The Benefits of Dentures

Some of the top benefits of dentures include:

  • They are unique for each person. We carefully design dentures so they look beautiful and function as well as possible.
  • Improved chewing power. High-quality dentures can greatly expand your dietary choices.
  • Enhanced facial aesthetics. Your dentures can prevent your cheeks from looking hollow, helping you to enjoy a more youthful appearance.
  • Easy maintenance. Caring well for dentures is simple and easy.
  • Cost-effective. Traditional dentures are one of the more affordable forms of tooth replacement.
