What Are the Types of Dentures?
There are two types of dentures: full and partial. When someone says the word “dentures,” what comes to mind is most likely a set of full dentures. They consist of a set of artificial teeth attached to an acrylic base the color of gum tissue. This base is secured to your gumline with natural suction and denture adhesive if necessary. If you’re missing all of your teeth on a single arch, then your dentist in Lakewood, Dr. Vinnie, will highly suggest getting a full denture.
Partial dentures, also called partials, are ideal for patients who are only missing a few teeth on either arch. These artificial teeth are connected to a metal framework that attaches to your remaining teeth with clasps. Partials are designed to blend right in with the rest of your smile, creating a beautiful set of pearly whites that no one can tell isn’t “natural.”
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
Dentures in Lakewood offer a whole host of benefits when compared to suffering through missing teeth. These advantages include:
- Being able to last for at least 5-10 years
- Increasing your self-esteem
- Supporting your facial muscles
- Improving your speech
- Allowing you to chew a variety of healthy foods more easily
- Being removable for easy cleaning
- Being very likely covered by most dental insurance plans
What If I Want Dentures That Don’t Slip Around?
Even the most well-fitted dentures eventually start to slip while you talk and eat after a few years. In order to prevent this from occurring, we can place several dental implants in your jaw to secure your denture.
An average of four to six of these biocompatible titanium posts are inserted at an angle into your jawbone to replace the roots of your missing teeth. The implants will provide unparalleled stability so that your dentures will be firmly anchored in place. Your dentures can be either fixed or removable, depending on your personal preference. Additionally, dental implants can last up to three decades or even longer with proper maintenance. You can enjoy your prosthesis for the rest of your life if you take good care of it!
