Types of Dentures
You can choose between traditional or implant-supported dentures at our Dallas dental office. We of course will evaluate your teeth and gums fully during a comprehensive exam. From there, we will offer our professional opinion for your oral health situation.
Some of the types of dentures available include conventional dentures, immediate dentures, overdentures, and partial dentures:
Conventional: This completely removable denture is created and placed in your mouth once the remaining teeth are removed and the tissues have healed, which normally takes several months. This type of denture includes an upper or lower ridge or jay. This is placed immediately after the removal of teeth. This denture type can also include implants, special attachments or other frameworks.
Immediate: This removable denture is implanted during the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. Your dentist will take measurements and make models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. You don’t need to be without your teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture re-lined or re-made after your jaw has recovered.
Over the Implants Dentures (Overdentures):Sometimes, your teeth can be saved in order to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An overdenture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after they have been prepared by your dentist. Implants are able to serve in the same capacity.
Partial Dentures: This is a removable and natural-looking appliance that helps to restore the form and function of the jaw. This helps to prevent further shifting of the teeth in the mouth and allows your gums, jaw bone, and facial muscles to remain engaged.
Pros of Getting Dentures
Perhaps the biggest advantage to dentures is the confidence it gives the wearer. Without having to worry about empty spaces in their mouth, they are free to smile and speak like normal without self-esteem issues. Dentures also allow wearers to eat whatever they want without dietary restrictions. Next, it will address speaking problems and will help people to understand what you’re saying. Most importantly, dentures can last a long time, anywhere from five to ten years.
