Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If you’re missing many of your teeth it can seriously impair your ability to lead a normal life. Whether you’re eating, talking, or just trying to make a good first impression, you’re likely to face difficulties if your smile is incomplete.

Dentures are an ideal treatment for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. They also require healthy gums for support, so depending on your situation you may need to pursue gum disease therapy before you get your prosthetic.

Types of Dentures

There are various kinds of dentures out there, providing options for patients at all levels of tooth loss. We’ll be able to talk you through which choice is best for you when we meet you in person, but before that here’s what you should know about them.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed to help people who are missing some, but not all, of their teeth. They consist of acrylic false teeth on a metal base and can secure in place by clipping onto what natural teeth are left.

Full Dentures

On the other hand, full dentures are meant to replace all of the teeth on a gum ridge. Because there are no surrounding teeth to clip onto, these dentures are made entirely out of acrylic and are meant to comfortably adhere to the gums entirely via suction.

Implant Dentures

If you want something with a bit more stability, implant dentures could be helpful. The prosthetic is affixed to metal rods that are surgically placed into the jaw, affording them much greater strength and durability than they would have otherwise.

The Benefits of Dentures

This allows them to bite and chew much more effectively than you could otherwise, permitting a much more well-rounded diet. They also make your cheeks look much fuller, giving you a youthful and more healthy appearance.
