Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures may be a good choice for you if:

  • You are missing all or most of your teeth throughout a dental arch.
  • Your gums are relatively healthy.
  • You are struggling with the inconveniences of missing or badly damaged teeth, such as difficulty eating and embarrassment when you smile.
  • You want a cost-effective way to rebuild your lost teeth.

If you are only missing a few teeth, a different form of tooth replacement, such as a fixed bridge, may be more suited to your circumstances.

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures. During your consultation, Dr. Civetti and our team will examine your mouth and help you decide on the one that best fits your circumstances, treatment goals, and budget. You may decide to get a partial denture, full denture, or implant denture.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can replace teeth at multiple locations throughout a dental arch, kind of like a puzzle piece that fits in exactly where it is needed. They are held in place via small acrylic or metal attachments. Often, they are best for individuals whose remaining natural teeth are still relatively healthy.

Full Dentures

A full denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. They have a custom-made acrylic base that is usually held in place by natural suction (sometimes, the help of adhesive is needed as well). The teeth of a full denture may be made out of acrylic or porcelain.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are held in place via prosthetic tooth roots, called dental implants, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone. The dentures may be fixed permanently in place or be removable. Although implant dentures cost more than their conventional counterparts, they are worth the price because they offer added stability, longevity, and other noteworthy benefits.

The Benefits of Dentures
