Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Basically, anyone who is missing several or all their teeth could benefit from getting a denture. Implant crowns and bridges are best for those who still have most of their teeth remaining. However, dentures are better for patients who have lost all their teeth.

Do you ever think twice about what you eat, what you say, or when to smile because of missing teeth? A denture might just be the solution you need to solve all these problems and more.

Types of Dentures

Tooth loss is different for every patient. Derby Dental offers three distinct types of dentures so we can provide the ideal prosthetic for each individual. No matter which one you choose, our team will tailor it to your particular wants and needs.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture fits seamlessly in the spaces between natural teeth to complete the dental arch. The dentist attaches lifelike prosthetic teeth to a gum-colored base. Small clips that wrap around the nearby teeth hold the base in place, ensuring good stability.

Full Dentures

If a patient is missing an entire row of teeth, a full denture can bring it back instantly. This prosthetic sits on top of the gums and stays secure thanks to natural suction and maybe some denture adhesive. It can dramatically change a patient’s appearance for the better while also greatly increasing their bite force. Our traditional dentures make it easier to enjoy a wider variety of foods.

Implant Dentures

On the surface, an implant denture looks just like a traditional full denture, but what makes it special lies below the gum line. Instead of sitting on top of the tissue, four to six dental implants anchor the prosthetic to the jawbone. The implant posts act like new tooth roots.

This gives the teeth incredible strength and guarantees they won’t move a millimeter while the patient is chewing or speaking. The implants also prevent the jawbone from changing shape and shrinking over time.

The Benefits of Dentures

While a new denture will of course do wonders for your appearance, the benefits don’t stop there:

  • More daily confidence
  • Ability to eat more types of foods
  • Better chewing means you get more vitamins from your diet, improving overall health
  • Protects the gums from soreness and infections
  • Aligns the jaw to prevent teeth grinding and joint pain
  • Supports the cheeks and lips to minimize wrinkles
  • Certain sounds and syllables will be easier to say
