Dentures Q & A
Why replace missing teeth with dentures?
If you lose all of your teeth, or even just a few, over time, your facial structure can change. Muscles and skin begin to sag, making you look older. Replacing missing teeth with dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and improve your profile.
Custom dentures can be made to look like your natural teeth, and may even improve the look of your smile. In the long run, you could also be healthier when you replace missing teeth with dentures, so you have the ability to chew a variety of foods. Additionally, dentures are considered a cost-effective way to replace many teeth all at once.
What types of dentures are available?
Depending on your individual needs, your DNTL dentist may recommend different types of dentures that work best for your mouth and your lifestyle. Some common types of dentures include:
Conventional dentures are fully removable dentures that replace all your missing upper or lower (or both) sets of teeth. There is a healing period while your gums recover from removing any decayed teeth, so you are without teeth until your mouth heals.
Like conventional dentures, immediate dentures are removable and replace all of your teeth. The difference is that they’re made ahead of time so your dentist positions them as soon as your natural teeth come out. After your gums heal, your immediate dentures have to be adjusted.
Partial dentures are removable but rest on framework that attaches to your natural teeth or crowns. Partial dentures replace several teeth in a row and fit tightly to your natural teeth.
As the name implies, implant-supported dentures anchor securely to your jaw by dental implants.
Am I a good candidate for dentures?
In general, you’re a good candidate for dentures if you wish to replace several or all of your missing teeth, and you’re in good health. The skilled dentists at DNTL evaluate your oral health and your overall wellness so they can recommend the type of dentures that will work best for your individual needs. They customize a treatment plan so you won’t have to live without teeth, and you can feel more confident each time you smile.
