Denture Services

Dentures, very simply, are a removable plate of teeth that people can use in place of natural teeth that have been lost or had to be removed. Dentures are a common part of life for many individuals and can be needed for a variety of reasons. Dentures shouldn’t only be associated with old age because dentists may recommend them to aid with a variety of health and cosmetic problems, including the loss of a majority of teeth to decay or serious injury, difficulty eating and speaking, or a patient’s lack of confidence in his/her appearance. It’s estimated that by 2020 at least 39 million people in the U.S. will have or need dentures. If you think you may eventually need the solution a set of dentures can provide, here’s some information about how they’re used, and what situations they’re ideal for.

Dentures can be used to replace missing teeth or to replace teeth that are weak and will eventually cause problems. They can come as a full set of teeth or a partial set of just the teeth that are missing. ‘Conventional’ dentures are attached directly to the gums and can be supported by the natural teeth left in the mouth (if there are any). On the other hand, implant-supported dentures are used when it’s necessary to attach a base to the jawbone and then the dentures are attached to the base. A visit to the dental clinic will help each individual determine which type may be needed.

Full Dentures

Whenever an entire set of teeth have to be replaced, a set of full dentures are used. These sets of dentures come in two separate parts, one to replace the upper teeth and the other to replace the lower. An acrylic base is attached to the teeth in the upper and lower sets that allows them to be set directly and firmly over the gums in both areas of the mouth. The complete removal of all natural teeth causes the jawbone to reshape over time, so dentists will often make a temporary set of dentures and wait for the jaw to settle before creating the permanent set of full dentures.

Partial Dentures

The Dope on Different Dentures

Partial dentures are used when only a few teeth need to be replaced. They typically feature metal clasps on their ends that hook onto the two surrounding natural teeth that remain. They can also be attached more securely with precision attachments or through help from pre existing crowns.
