Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Believe it or not, dentures are far more versatile than you think! They have the ability to restore several missing teeth scattered throughout your smile or an entire arch. During your consultation with Dr. Song, he’ll examine your mouth to determine the best solution for you. If you have any preexisting oral health concerns (i.e., decay or gum disease), we’ll work the appropriate care into your treatment plan to ensure your mouth is ready for dentures.
Types of Dentures
At your initial appointment, Dr. Song will discuss all of your options to help you decide which one fits your lifestyle and needs best. Rest assured – our team will explain the pros and cons of each one and provide you with a cost estimate to ensure you make a well-informed decision. Based on your situation, we may recommend one of the following types of dentures:
Partials are crafted from a gum-colored acrylic base that’s often supported by metal. It’s designed to fit around your existing teeth, anchoring the replacements in place to fill the gaps in your smile. These are usually removable, making them far easier to keep clean.
Traditional full dentures are meant to restore an entire arch of teeth by anchoring to the jawbone and gums via suction. Like partials, they have a lifelike, gum-colored acrylic base along with prosthetic teeth. Once in place, they can improve your bite power and oral function.
If you want a more durable solution, implant dentures combine the benefits of traditional prosthetics and modern technology. Each titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, restoring the entire structure of a missing tooth from the roots up to the chewing surface. They allow you to enjoy maximum stability and avoid unwanted movement.
The Benefits of Dentures
By choosing to replace your missing teeth with dentures, you can reap several incredible benefits! Some of those advantages include:
- Ability to eat most foods
- Improved speech
- Long-lasting prosthetics with proper care and maintenance
- Easier maintenance
- Preservation of jawbone and facial shape (with implant dentures)
