Types of Dentures
There are a few different types of dentures out there. During your consultation with Dr. Ostrand, she will help you choose which type is best for restoring your unique smile.
If you’re suffering from tooth loss but still have some healthy teeth in your mouth, a partial denture is likely the best option for you. They have an acrylic or metal base and are designed to fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth to fill in the missing spaces. Small, discreet clasps are made to wrap around your natural teeth in order to hold your new replacement teeth in place.
A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. It is held into place with the natural power of suction in your mouth. Just like partials, full dentures are made with a gum-colored acrylic base that holds natural-looking ceramic teeth in place.
When patients are missing teeth but want a more stable, long-lasting alternative to traditional dentures, dental implant dentures are an excellent choice. These dentures are held into place with titanium, screw-like implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They allow for additional bite power and prevents bone deterioration over time.
