Full and Partial Dentures

A denture is a set of removable replacement teeth that dentists recommend when you are missing several or all your teeth. The biggest advantage of dentures being you can get your life back to normal so you can eat and smile like you used to. Though they may take a short time to get used to, dentures do provide the facial structure that is often lost when teeth are missing. They can also restore your confidence in social situations. Dentures are designed to create great looking teeth that look natural in your mouth. As a result when you get dentures, your smile may be even more beautiful than the one you remember.

Types of Dentures:  Full Dentures, Partial Dentures, Immediate Dentures If you still have some teeth that are in good condition, you may be a candidate for a partial denture. There are also upper and lower dentures, which are used if all of the teeth on either the top or bottom are missing.

What about an immediate denture? An immediate denture is used only if your dentist cannot save any of your natural teeth. Recent advances in denture materials and fitting have made it possible to have full dentures that both fit securely and are comfortable to wear.

Would bridges or implants be a better option? Yes, if you recently lost one or a few teeth. Bone in the mouth tends to degrade after teeth are missing for a while. If your teeth have been missing for several years you may not have the bone needed for implants and bridges. In that case, a partial denture can be an effective option for you. service8.jpgA 2008 Harvard University study showed that partial dentures are the best option for patients who do not meet the criteria for implants. And best of all, they are cost effective.

Getting Dentures: If you think you may be a candidate for dentures what do you need to know? Whether you are getting a full, upper, lower or partial denture the procedure is essentially the same. In order to have your denture fit perfectly, you may need to visit your dentist more than once before you get your denture. The most important thing to remember is to focus on your dental hygiene, and possibly improve your daily routine. The best thing you can do for yourself is to take good care of the teeth you still have and keep your gums healthy. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash multiple times daily are still best ways to keep teeth and gums healthy

Partial Dentures: A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth.

It can be attached to the teeth with clasps (clasp or conventional partial) or it can be attached to the teeth with crowns with precision attachments (hidden clasps).
Both types have a metal framework and plastic teeth and gum areas.
