Types of Dentures

When you visit us for your consultation, we will carefully examine your mouth and learn about your goals for treatment. Depending on what we discover, we will recommend the type of prosthetic that best fits your situation. We might tell you that a partial denture, full denture, or implant denture would be a great way to restore your smile.

Partial Dentures

A traditional partial dentureis a one-piece prosthetic that can replace multiple teeth at various places throughout a dental arch. You can think of it sort of like a puzzle piece that fits in exactly where it is needed. Small metal or acrylic attachments help a partial denture to remain secure through eating and speaking.

Full Dentures

A traditional full denture consists of a gum-colored acrylic base that is attached to a full arch of porcelain or acrylic teeth. Natural suction or a mild adhesive helps the denture to stay in place throughout the day. Dentures are always fitted to a patient’s unique mouth so they fit snugly but comfortably.

Implant Dentures

An implant denture does not rely on suction, adhesive, or metal clips to remain in the mouth. Rather, it is anchored in place by small titanium posts (dental implants) that act as substitutes for the roots of the missing teeth. We often recommend implant dentures as the best option for patients who are candidates for the procedure.

What Is the Dentures Process?

The exact process for creating traditional dentures varies from patient to patient. We may need to extract some of your remaining teeth and address existing oral health procedures before we provide your prosthetic. Once your mouth is ready, we will take detailed impressions and images of it and use those to design your new teeth. Then, a dental laboratory will create your prosthetic. After we provide you with your new teeth, we will educate you on how to adapt to using them so you can get as much out of them as possible.

The implant-retained dentures process is more complex and may take several months or longer to complete. Our dental implants page has more information about this remarkable treatment.
