Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are a great option for patients who are missing several, most of, or all of their natural teeth. Depending on how many teeth you still have and where they are located in your mouth, a customized plan can be made just for you. If you are currently struggling with any dental issues, like tooth decay or gum disease, this will need to be addressed and eliminated before you are able to get dentures. The health of your smile is our top priority!

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures that cater to a variety of different needs. During your initial consultation, we will determine which of the following will best restore your smile:

Partial Dentures

If you still have some healthy teeth in your mouth, a partial denture can fit between the surrounding teeth like a puzzle piece. With this prosthetic, missing teeth in different locations of the mouth can be replaced simultaneously.

Full Dentures

This option replaces an entire arch of missing teeth on the top or bottom. It is held into place by the shape and suction of the mouth. Full dentures are made with a gum-colored base and hold natural-looking, tooth-colored replacement teeth in place.

Implant Dentures

If you’re looking for a sturdier, more permanent option, dental implant dentures are an ideal solution. These dentures are held into place with titanium, screw-like implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as tooth roots. They allow for additional bite force and will prevent bone loss from occurring over time.
