What are my options for dentures?
Dentures have come a long way over time, and now our patients have more choices than ever when it comes to restoring their smiles! Let’s discuss each option to better understand the benefits and their purpose so you can make an educated decision regarding the solution most appropriate for your smile needs and goals:
- Partial dentures. Dr. Aaron Sanders of Z Dentistry describes partial dentures as the perfect solution for patients who are missing only a few teeth and want to restore the esthetics of their smile without replacing all their teeth. Partial dentures attach to existing healthy teeth, creating an anchor that holds the partial in place and allows it to function as a natural tooth. They are fabricated from acrylic and metal and can be adjusted if teeth shift over time. Because they can be taken in and out of the mouth, they are easy to clean and care for to extend their longevity
- Full complete dentures. Full or “complete” dentures may be the best option for restoring your smile if you are missing all your natural teeth. Complete dentures are designed to fit over your gums, replacing all your missing teeth and improving your smile’s cosmetic appearance and functionality. It is made of acrylic and includes false teeth and false gums. The denture is usually held in place with either natural suction or the use of denture adhesives which are available at our office and over the counter at your local drugstore
- Implant-retained dentures. Implant-retained, sometimes called all-on-four or implant-supported dentures, are the gold standard in full smile reconstruction. These dentures are held in place by several strategically placed dental implants, providing a secure and reliable fit. As the name implies, this option uses implants to support your dentures, creating an incredibly stable bite that allows you to eat and speak with confidence. Implant-retained dentures are also beneficial as they help preserve the underlying bone structure of your jaw
