Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

There are several different tooth replacement options, and dentures in particular are used for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. If you’re only missing one or two, you may be better served by another method of tooth replacement.

Dentures also adhere directly to the gums via suction, which makes the health of your gums unusually important. If you’re suffering from gum disease, we may need to treat you for the condition before fitting you for your prosthetic.

Types of Dentures

There are several different kinds of dentures, distinguished from each other primarily by how they’re designed to be held in place. We’ll be able to give you more personalized advice for which you should use when we meet you in person, but if you’re curious, here’s what you should know about the differences between these various kinds of dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures, as the name would suggest, are designed to replace most, though not all, of the teeth on a gum ridge. They’re secured to the teeth with small metal clips, providing them with a fair amount of stability.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, on the other hand, are designed for those patients who are missing all of their teeth on their gum ridge. Unlike partial dentures, they’re designed to fit snugly against the gums and stay secure via suction.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are a common upgrade for patients who have had traditional prosthetics for a while and are looking for more stability. A set of dentures is attached to dental implants, metal posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw.

This stimulates the jaw, preventing bone reabsorption and ensuring a more secure fit in the long-term. The implants can also prevent the dentures from slipping, making eating and talking substantially easier.

The Benefits of Dentures
