Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Whether you’re missing several teeth throughout your mouth or you don’t have any of your natural teeth left, you’re likely a candidate for dentures. After all, they are custom-made for each patient and don’t require oral surgery! As with any dental treatment, there are some exceptions. For example, if you are only missing one tooth, then a dental bridge or single dental implant is a better fit. Similarly, if you’re struggling with severe gum disease, then we will need to address that before moving forward.

Types of Dentures

Did you know that there are several types of dentures? At Pleasant Valley Dentistry, we offer partial dentures, full dentures, and implant dentures, and you can learn a bit more about each right here.

Partial Dentures

As you may have guessed from the name, partial dentures are ideal for patients with partial tooth loss. In some cases, that looks like replacing several teeth in a row. In other cases, that looks like filling several gaps throughout your mouth. Either way, a custom restoration will be made, using the most lifelike materials to ensure the final result looks and feels great.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, on the other hand, are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. While partial dentures are secured in place with a discreet clasp, full dentures are held in place with natural suction or a special adhesive. Again, both the gum-colored base and the prosthetic teeth will be custom-made just for you, ensuring your denture doesn’t look bulky or unnatural in any way.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are a combination of tried-and-true dentures and state-of-the-art dental implants. In this case, we secure your restoration in place with a series of implant posts instead of allowing it to rest against your gumlines. There are several benefits of this approach, including that you won’t have to worry about movement while you’re talking, laughing, or chewing.
