Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Patient and a dentist

Dentures are best suited to patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. This prosthetic has the unique ability to simulate many of the teeth at once but lack the stability of dental bridges and dental implants. That being the case, you might prefer the latter treatments if you want to replace one or two teeth.

However, if you need a brand-new smile all at once, dentures are an excellent way to go; they’re affordable, reliable, and easy to maintain.

Types of Dentures

Depending on what you need from your prosthetic, there are three different kinds of dentures available to you. We'll be able to talk to you about which kind suits you well when we meet you in person, but before that, here's what you should know about each of them.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are acrylic prosthetics attached to a metal base, allowing them to be affixed to the natural teeth via small metal hooks. As the name would imply they're designed to replace some, but not all, of the teeth on a gum ridge.

Full Dentures

On the other hand, full dentures are designed to replace all of the teeth on a gum ridge. They're made entirely from acrylic and are meticulously crafted to fit your mouth, allowing them to hold fast to your gums entirely via suction.

Implant Dentures

For more stability you can affix your dentures to dental implants, which are metal rods that are surgically placed into the jaw. This makes your dentures stronger and more durable.

While implant dentures are often the more expensive option, they'll also last longer than other prosthetics, meaning that you may save money on replacements in the long run.

The Benefits of Dentures

Missing most or all of your teeth can be incredibly hard, so dentures provide you with something incredibly valuable. You'll be able to smile with greater confidence as well as enjoying a much stronger bite. Dentures also make your cheeks look much fuller, giving you a much more youthful appearance.
