Dentures are removable devices people use to replace missing teeth and some of the gum tissue. There are different types to accommodate those with either partial or complete tooth loss. If missing teeth are ruining your self-esteem and you aren’t looking to do an invasive procedure, you’re the perfect candidate for dentures!
People who are missing some or all of their natural teeth usually get dentures. They’re a much easier alternative to getting dental implants, which are more expensive and more invasive. As long as you have enough healthy gum tissue and jawbone, dentures are a wonderful option!
Depending on the patient’s preferences and how many teeth they are missing, there are several different kinds of dentures. The two main types are partial and complete, and those can be broken down into even more parts.
Used when patients still have some teeth left. Can either be fixed or removable, and they help prevent the other teeth from falling out.
Recommended for people who are missing all of their teeth. If you get teeth extracted, you can choose between conventional (placed after the jaw heals) or immediate (placed the same day teeth are removed.)
Dentures are good for people who don’t want to undergo any significant dental treatments. They are removable and ideal for patients who have experienced gum and bone loss.
Dental implants are permanent solutions for tooth loss. These get drilled into the jawbone and are more expensive than dentures. If you don’t have enough jaw bone to support the implant, this disqualifies you from getting the procedure.
