Do I need a denture?
If you have missing teeth and they are beginning to cause issues with eating, speaking, or your oral health, dentures may be the right treatment for you. Though you probably envision a traditional denture when you think about this restoration, there are actually various options to ensure you find the right plan for you.
What are my denture options?
- Full Dentures: A traditional full denture replaces all the teeth on an arch.
- Partial Dentures: Partial dentures take advantage of the remaining natural teeth and leave room for them to fit through the restoration.
- Immediate Dentures: A dental laboratory creates immediate dentures prior to a patient’s extraction procedure. This way, the patient can wear their denture immediately after their extraction. The denture acts as a band-aid while the extraction sites heal.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental implants hold an implant-supported denture permanently in place. The implants lie within the jawbone under the missing teeth and anchor the denture into place.
