What are the different types of dentures?

When it comes to getting new dentures, you have options. Finding the right approach is essential for overall dental health and how comfortable you are wearing your new dentures. 

Full dentures

A set of full dentures will replace all of your natural teeth in your upper or lower jaw. You’ll be able to remove your dentures for cleaning and take care of your gum tissue. 

Partial dentures

Partial dentures allow the flexibility to fill in gaps in your smile while also retaining as many healthy natural teeth as possible. Like full dentures, partials can be removed for cleaning, allowing you better access to the sides and back of your natural teeth. 

The decision between full and partial dentures primarily centers on the health of your natural teeth and whether extensive dental work is needed. 

Why choose dentures over other options?

Many people choose dentures because they offer an affordable means of replacing missing teeth. However, it’s important to understand that even the best set of dentures will eventually need to be repaired or replaced. Be sure to factor that expense into your decision-making process. 

Dentures are also a great fit for people who are not good candidates for dental implant options. Implants require substantial bone tissue to secure the implanted post(s). Bone grafting is a solution in some cases, but not everyone is able or willing to go through the grafting process. 

Dentures are also an appealing option for individuals who need to have their teeth extracted in preparation for certain treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Some people even choose dentures to restore their smile while saving for dental implants. 

What is the process for getting dentures?

Your dental team begins by gathering digital imaging to learn more about the structure of your teeth and bones. If you need teeth extracted, that process is done before moving forward with dentures. A set of impressions help determine the exact shape of your gum tissue and other oral structures. 

You may receive a temporary denture to wear while your permanent dentures are crafted. Once your dentures are ready, you’ll return to have them checked for fit and comfort. It’s possible to make small adjustments during this visit. It takes some time to get used to the feel of a new set of dentures, but before long, wearing your dentures will feel normal and natural. 

When you’re ready to learn more, schedule a visit using the easy online booking tool. You’re also welcome to call or stop by Holly Street Dental to schedule a time to meet with Dr. Langford to discuss dentures in greater detail.
