Tooth loss requires patients to speak to a dental professional about ways to restore the smile to address function, health, and appearance. Many patients are advised to consider the benefits of dentures. Dentures come in several different varieties, including:
- Partial dentures
- Full dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
Which one is right for me?
Patients in the Palm Beach Gardens, FL area who are missing one tooth, or several along the dental arch, may be a great candidate for partial dentures. These dentures are fabricated with metal and acrylic framework and snap into place along the dental arch. They are easy to remove which make them simple to adjust, care for, and store overnight. It is a wonderful alternative to dental bridges or dental implants.
Patients with all their teeth within the dental arch missing or extracted will want to ask about full dentures. These are dentures which include false gum tissue and fake teeth and are kept in place with dental adhesives or natural suction. These dentures should be soaked in a cleaning solution every night to extend their longevity. These are great for patients who need to fully repair their smile in an economical manner.
Last but not least are implant-supported dentures. These are full dentures that are fabricated to snap into place with several dental implants inserted along the dental arch. The benefit of this type of full denture is the ability to enjoy better stabilization without dental adhesives. Many patients who are serious about ensuring their dentures stay in place may find this to be their best option.
