What types of dentures can I choose from?
Dentures are an excellent solution for patients who are living with multiple missing or compromised teeth. Depending on your circumstances, there are different types of dentures to suit your needs, and Dr. Daftary and Dr. Zaner can discuss your options with you.
Full or Complete Dentures
This acrylic appliance is designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Today's dentures are much more thoughtfully designed to fit and provide better aesthetics than those in the past. Dentures are removable and they rely on a secure fit and suction to your jawbone to stay in place, which can sometimes present a learning curve as you are first getting used to talking and eating with them.
A partial denture fills in the spaces of multiple missing teeth with complementary prosthetic teeth while allowing you to retain the rest of your natural, healthy teeth. Partials are also removable and they use metal or plastic clasps to anchor to healthy teeth.
Denture wearers who would like a more secure and stable fit can benefit from dental implants, which can be used to support a full denture. Dental implants also provide the added benefit of stimulating the jawbone, which keeps it healthy and ensures better longevity for your denture.
