Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Tooth loss can cause a number of daily inconveniences, such as problems with chewing, a lack of confidence, and more. If you are struggling with such issues, dentures may be able to help you! During your consultation, we will carefully examine your mouth to ensure that it is healthy enough to support a prosthetic. If it is not, we may be able to design a restorative plan to prepare you to be a good candidate for dentures.

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures. During your tooth replacement consultation, our team will learn about your circumstances and oral health before we recommend the type of prosthetic that we believe best fits your unique situation. We might suggest that you get partial dentures, full dentures, or implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

If your remaining natural teeth are still fairly healthy, we might inform you that a partial denture would be the best form of tooth replacement. A partial denture has a gum-colored base and artificial teeth that fit in around your remaining dentition. Small metal or acrylic attachments help it to remain secure in the mouth.

Full Dentures

A full denture replaces either all of the upper or lower teeth. These prosthetics have an acrylic gum-colored base that is molded to your unique mouth, along with custom-made acrylic or porcelain teeth. Natural suction or adhesive helps them to stay in place during eating and speaking.

Implant Dentures

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots, small titanium posts that get surgically placed into the jawbone. They can serve as a strong base of support for dentures. Because of the many outstanding benefits they offer, we often recommend implant dentures as the best option for patients who qualify for them.
