Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer many benefits to patients who are suffering from tooth loss, and there are several different kinds of dentures that can work with the unique needs of different patients.
Full, partial, and implant-supported dentures:
- Improve the appearance of the smile
- Are comfortable to wear
- Support the face muscles
- Improve eating and speaking ability
- Are easy to remove and clean
Full dentures are considered full mouth restorations and require all of the teeth on an arch to be removed if they are not already. If dental extractions are required, immediate dentures are provided and can be used as soon as the teeth are extracted and throughout the healing process. Once the gums have healed and your custom full dentures have been created, we will ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and look natural.
Partial dentures are false teeth that are attached to a plastic gum-colored base and used to replace several missing teeth in a row. They are held in place by metal clasps that clip onto nearby teeth to hold them firmly in place, and they can help prevent other teeth from moving out of place. Unlike fixed bridges, partial dentures are removable and must be removed for cleaning purposes.
Implant-supported dentures are attached to dental implants that are surgically implanted in the gums, whereas traditional dentures require denture adhesive to be applied every day to create a long-lasting suction seal. Patients choose implant-supported dentures because they are very stable and unlikely to move or slide around while being worn. Implant-supported dentures must be removed every night to be cleaned just like traditional dentures.
