What are Dentures?
Dentures have been around for hundreds of years with the same purpose the entire time – to replace missing teeth. Advancements in dental technology and materials have made what was once ill-fitting, fake-looking teeth into the popular and effective dentures that we have today. Modern day dentures are artificial teeth that are connected to a gum colored plastic base to make a natural-looking restoration.
The type of denture that you choose depends on your overall oral health as well as your needs. Most common denture options are removable and held in place either via suction or denture adhesives. There are options for removable partial dentures and complete dentures.
Partial dentures are used for individuals who are missing multiple teeth that can’t be restored with a dental bridge. Partial dentures allow patients to retain remaining natural healthy teeth. Depending on the location of the missing teeth there are upper partial dentures and lower partial dentures.
Full dentures, also called complete dentures, are used when all the teeth are missing on the upper or lower arch.
Implant-Retained Dentures can either be full or partial dentures that are held securely in place with dental implants. This type of denture provides the most security for the bite and helps you prevent bone loss in the jaw.
Benefits of Dentures
Loss of natural teeth impacts your appearance and your oral health, putting remaining healthy teeth in jeopardy. Dentures can help you maintain long term oral health. Some of the biggest benefits of dentures include:
- Regain the ability to bite and chew
- Restore the ability to speak naturally
- Keep remaining healthy teeth in place longer
