What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

When it comes to traditional dentures, you can expect to receive either a partial or full denture. This is dependent on how many teeth are missing. For individuals who prefer a more permanent solution, you can opt for implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is similar to a puzzle piece. When you are missing only a few consecutive or non-consecutive teeth along the top or bottom row, a partial can be fabricated using an acrylic, gum-colored base and artificial teeth. Designed to fit comfortably, it is held in place using metal clasps or clips and creates the appearance of a full, complete smile.

Full Dentures

If you are missing an entire row of teeth along the top or bottom arch, a full denture will likely be recommended. This tried-and-true solution has been helping people feel more confident in their appearances for centuries. While the materials have drastically improved over time, those created nowadays use the same material as a partial, only you will have more artificial teeth to replicate your smile. Your natural suction will help hold it in place, but you can opt to use denture adhesive for additional security.

Implant Dentures

If you prefer a more secure, permanent, and stable tooth replacement solution, you can’t go wrong with an implant denture. These are held in place with titanium posts (between 4 and 6) and fuse with your natural jawbone and surrounding tissues. A custom-made denture is created and placed on top of your dental implants to complete your new smile and give you greater functionality, a stronger bite force, and improved oral health.

Who is a Good Candidate?

When it comes to choosing dentures to replace your missing teeth, you’ll likely be accepted for treatment if you:

  • Are missing multiple teeth consecutively or non-consecutively in a row
  • Are missing an entire arch of teeth
  • Have optimal gum health
  • Have a strong jawbone

Only during your consultation with Dr. Heil will you know if you are qualified to receive custom-made dentures. He will examine your facial structure and oral health to determine your eligibility. Should you present any signs of gum disease, it will be necessary for you to undergo treatment before moving forward with dentures.

Benefits of Dentures

No matter the type of denture you receive, you’ll experience far greater benefits than if you were to leave your missing teeth untreated. Some of the most common benefits include:

  • An enhanced aesthetic that allows you to look and feel more comfortable and confident than before
  • An affordable way to replace your missing teeth and is often covered by dental insurance
  • A way to avoid misalignment or shifting teeth should you only need a partial denture
  • Prosthetics that can last many years with proper care and maintenance
