What types of dentures are available?

There are various types of dentures that might be used for patients who have lost one or more teeth. They include:

  • Partial denture – the partial denture is a great solution for patients who are missing one tooth, or even several throughout the dental arch. The partial denture is made with a metal framework that snaps into place, utilizing, existing teeth to support it. The partial denture is easy to remove and replace, and can be adjusted as needed over time.
  • Full denture – a full denture is the type of denture many patients think of when their dentist approaches them with tooth replacement options. It may bring memories of elderly family members with false teeth. Fortunately, complete dentures have come a long way over the years, and these acrylic restorations are made to look completely natural. They are also easy to care for and an economical solution to full tooth loss.
  • Implant-retained denture – patients who want to avoid messy dental adhesives for maintaining the placement of a full denture may wish to ask the team at Foster Dental Care about the advantages of the implant-retained denture. This is a more conservative full denture that utilizes dental implants along the dental arch to hold the restoration in place for better functionality and fit.
