What are dentures?
Dentures are tooth replacement options that are removable and affordable. These restorations are often made of metal and/or acrylic. There are several types of dentures including:
- Partial dentures
- Full dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
Dentures are used to replace one or more teeth and can snap in and out of the smile for easy care and cleaning. They are the least expensive option when compared to dental bridges and dental implants.
Who is a candidate?
Most everyone is a candidate for dentures. This is why they are so versatile! Patients who are not candidates for bridges or implants can always use dentures within their smile for replacement of missing teeth to restore function and beauty to the smile.
What is done for the smile to prepare for dentures?
Patients using partial dentures to replace missing teeth will have a series of impressions made to create the metal framework for the denture. False teeth are placed on the partials which will slide into place once the denture is worn. Patients considering full dentures may have to have some of their natural teeth extracted before impressions are made. Full dentures can be customized to look as patients desire. Dental implants are placed prior to creating implant-supported dentures, which requires x-rays and oral surgery prior to fabrication.
