What are Dentures?

Your confidence, your communication, and even your ability to eat comfortably can all be negatively impacted by missing teeth. For replacing lost teeth and maintaining the health and beauty of your mouth, dentures are a popular and practical option.

A removable prosthetic called a denture can restore lost teeth. The majority of the time, they are constructed of acrylic or porcelain and are shaded to blend in with your actual teeth. Dentures can replace all of a person’s missing teeth or only a few of them.

Types of Dentures

  • Full Dentures: Full dentures are used to replace a full set of missing teeth, either in the upper or lower jaw.

  • Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used to replace a portion of missing teeth and are designed to fit around your remaining natural teeth.

  • Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are designed to be placed immediately after the removal of natural teeth, so you don’t have to go without teeth while waiting for your permanent dentures to be made.

  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are the middle ground between the conventional denture that uses adhesive and the more expensive advanced full-arch dental implants. The support of the implant allows the dental fixture to be shaped into a horseshoe, reducing the bulkiness and opening the palate to create more space for the tongue and better ability to taste food. Implant-supported dentures are sturdier and do not require adhesive.

The Denture Procedure

  • Your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to determine if dentures are the right solution for you.

  • Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to create a custom-fit set of dentures.

  • Your dentist will work with a dental laboratory to design and create your dentures.

  • In a follow-up visit, your dentist will place the dentures, adjust them for a comfortable fit, and ensure they’re properly secured.


Caring for your Dentures

  • Handle your dentures carefully to avoid breaking them.

  • Clean your dentures daily to keep them looking and smelling fresh.

  • Store your dentures in a safe place when you’re not wearing them.

  • Schedule regular dental check-ups to monitor the fit and function of your dentures.
