Three Different Types Of Dentures

Three Different Types Of Dentures

Posted June 29, 2015 by Wager-Evans Dental

IRD1 If you have multiple teeth missing or are fully edentulous in your top or bottom arch, or both, there are a few different treatment options available to you. It is nice to have choices, and the dental field does have many treatment choices available for just about every situation, even missing teeth. There are different types of dentures available depending on how many teeth you have missing, and whether you want something permanent or reversible. At Wager Evans Dental we offer three different types of dentures.

Types of Dentures

At Wager Evans Dental we offer partial dentures, full dentures, and implants dentures.

Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used when you are missing multiple teeth but not all of your teeth in a single arch. Your missing teeth do not have to be side-by-side, but they do need to be in the same arch. Partial dentures are attached via metal clasps and the prosthetic teeth prevent your natural remaining teeth from shifting and becoming misaligned.

Full Dentures: Full dentures replace a whole arch of missing teeth, the upper arch, lower arch, or both. The artificial teeth are permanently attached to a pink gum-colored base. Full dentures are held in place via suction and denture adhesive and are removable. They restore your smile and your ability to eat healthy.

Implant Dentures: Implant dentures offer more stability than traditional dentures. Mini dental implants are surgically placed in your jaw and your dentures snap onto them preventing them from shifting or slipping while talking or eating. For implants to be successful the patient must have solid, healthy jaw bone structure.
