What Type of Denture Is Right for Me?
We understand that each patient's dental needs are unique, and weigh a number of factors to determine which type of denture is best for him or her. During an initial consultation, you may be asked a number of questions pertaining to your lifestyle and habits, as well as discuss the formation of realistic expectations and how dentures can help strengthen your bite and rejuvenate your smile.
Drs. Robertson and Orchard help to fit patients with a range of denture types, including:
- Full dentures - suitable for patients who are missing all of their teeth
- Partial dentures - removable or fixed; work in tandem with one or more existing natural teeth which anchor a removable denture or fixed bridge
- Implant-supported dentures - used with a conservative number of dental implants to support and stabilize either removable or permanent dentures
- Immediate or same-day dentures - placed immediately after extractions have been performed
A range of materials, including flexible, natural-feeling plastics and rubbers as well as metal, may be used to construct a denture. The technology used to make dentures has become extremely sophisticated in recent years, allowing for a customized dental prosthetic that not only looks good but feels natural as well.
Benefits of Dentures
The benefits of dentures are twofold: aesthetic, as well as functional. Restoring missing teeth has been shown to provide a significant boost to individuals' self esteem and confidence in their appearance. Nutrition may benefit as well, as denture wearers are able to introduce foods that were difficult to consume, and enjoyment eating favorite foods may be enhanced. Sense of taste may improve and lastly, speaking ability and enunciation are often improved.
