Choosing the Right Dentures for You

Once upon a time, dentures were renowned for being obvious removable replacements for missing teeth. Today, advancements in technology and dental care have made dentures look and feel almost as real and comfortable as your natural teeth. Dentures generally require an adjustment period— “relearning” to comfortably eat and speak, but the transition is rarely more than a few months and significantly improves one’s quality of life compared to living without teeth.

There are two main types of dentures: full/complete and partial. Your dentist in Temple Terrace can help you choose affordable quality dentures that ideally suit your needs and lifestyle.

Full/Complete Dentures

Full or complete dentures come in two varieties: conventional and immediate.

Conventional dentures are created following the removal of teeth and after the gum tissue has had time to heal. These types of complete dentures are generally ready for placement two to three months after tooth extraction. The advantage of conventional dentures is the precise design based on the state of the wearer’s mouth following tooth extraction.

Immediate dentures are made prior to removal of the teeth and are designed to be placed in the mouth immediately following removal of the teeth. This offers the wearer no “downtime” without teeth, even as the mouth is healing. However, bones and gums often shrink throughout the healing process, therefore patients must revisit their dental care professional for adjustments and/or until conventional dentures are made. In most cases, it is understood that immediate dentures are a temporary solution for the wearer during the healing process and they will eventually need to be fitted for conventional dentures to avoid constant readjustments.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed to replace only a select number of missing teeth. This type of denture is also removable and generally consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink-hued plastic base, connected by metal framework to hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are a common solution when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.

One type of partial denture is known as a fixed bridge. This type of permanent partial denture is cemented into place, filling the space created by missing teeth and preventing other teeth from changing position.

A precision partial denture, yet another type of denture, is removable. This type of partial denture uses internal attachments that attach to the adjacent crowns, creating a more natural-looking tooth- replacement device.

Your dentist in Temple Terrace can advise you of the best options for affordable quality dentures or partial dentures and help you determine which type is the best fit for you.
