What Kind of Dentures Are Right for Me?

Dentures are custom-made removable oral appliances that replace missing teeth. They restore the appearance and functionality of a patient’s smile, while improving their confidence! There are different types of dentures, including full and partial dentures, to suit a variety of needs.

Full Dentures

Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth on the upper or lower jaw. They can either be temporarily attached to the gums via a gentle adhesive or more securely attached with dental implants.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be made in many different configurations to replace multiple missing teeth. The orientation and placement of the artificial teeth are determined by which teeth you are missing and how your appliance will be secured to your existing teeth (via clasps, precision attachments, and/or crowns).

The Right Fit

Full and partial dentures provide patients an affordable opportunity for enjoying a restored smile, improved oral functionality, and proper teeth position. With the help of advanced dental technology, modern dentures are comfortable and natural-looking.

Ultimately, the right kind of tooth replacement for you will depend on numerous factors, such as your budget and willingness to adjust your oral hygiene routine. Removeable full dentures require adhesives and special maintenance. If you’re missing multiple teeth, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures, a bridge, or single dental implants. Dental implants, however, are more costly and invasive as a surgical procedure.
