Partial dentures are often recommended for patients who are missing just a few teeth. They consist of multiple false teeth, which are attached to a wire and plastic framework. This framework clips onto your remaining healthy teeth, holding the false teeth in place and restoring your smile.
Often, partial dentures are used as a “stop-gap” solution before permanent tooth replacement with a dental bridge or dental implant, but some patients opt to use partial dentures as a long-term solution to restore their missing teeth.
Full dentures are intended to replace the upper, lower, or both arches of your teeth. If you have serious oral health issues like advanced gum disease, numerous decayed or infected teeth, or have experienced serious oral/facial trauma, full dentures may be the best way to restore your smile.
After your remaining teeth are extracted, full dentures are built to fit precisely over your gums and restore your teeth. Your dentures will fit onto your gums perfectly, and they are held in place with friction. Denture adhesive can also be used for a stronger hold and tighter fit.
What Are The Benefits Of Dentures?
Compared to other methods of smile restoration, dentures have some unique benefits. First, they are very affordable. Both partial and full dentures are cost-effective and are typically covered by insurance, which ensures you can get the dental care you need.
Dentures also offer fast results. You can have a full or partial denture place in just 2-3 appointments over a period of a few weeks. In contrast, some other options like dental implants require 3-6 months of treatment before your smile will be restored.
Who Are The Best Patients For Dentures?
If you are missing a few of your natural teeth but your remaining teeth are strong, you are likely a good candidate for partial dentures. Getting a set of partial dentures will let you restore your appearance and your bite, and prevent further complications such as teeth shifting towards your empty tooth sockets.
If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, or all of your teeth have been severely damaged, full dentures may be a good fit for you. Full dentures are only recommended if you have serious oral health issues because they require the extraction of all of your remaining teeth before they can be placed.
