Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures in Jefferson are an excellent option for those who are missing either several or an entire row of teeth, as their unique design helps rebuild smiles in these situations. However, the best way to determine whether you’re a good candidate for dentures is to schedule a consultation with either one of our skilled dentists, Dr. Hammond or Dr. Pichler. Once our team has a chance to examine your smile and ask you a little more about your restorative dental goals, we’ll be able to make the best treatment recommendations for your needs.
Types of Dentures
Depending on your unique tooth loss situation, as well as other factors, like your jawbone density and oral health status, our team may recommend any of the following denture treatments to you.
Partial dentures are designed to fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth to replace several gaps throughout your arch. They’re typically crafted from a metal base that holds gum-colored acrylic and natural-looking ceramic teeth. They’re also removable, making cleaning them a breeze.
Full dentures are crafted to fit atop the gumline and utilize natural suction within the mouth to stay in place. The base is crafted from a gum-colored acrylic, while the replacement teeth are made from natural-looking, durable materials like ceramic. To help with stability, denture adhesive can also be used to make eating and speaking easier.
Traditional dentures are at-risk of slipping or shifting within the mouth, but when they’re anchored to the jawbone with dental implants, they’re unwaveringly strong. The implants are crafted from a biocompatible metal (titanium), that’s able to naturally fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. The dentures can then be attached to the implants, resulting in a stronger bite force as well as replacement teeth that function and look like natural.
