If you've got loose or missing teeth and would like to replace them, dentures are an ideal option for you. However, there are many different types of dentures, and it is easy to get confused as to which one is right for you. Here we explain the few main types of dentures to help you get acquainted with the available options.
Full Dentures – they replace the complete set of a patient’s teeth. If you want a simple, removable option for your teeth, full dentures are ideal for you as they go over your gums.
Partial Dentures – If you have multiple missing teeth in one section of the mouth, you can get partial dentures. They can replace up to half of your jaw and come with a pink base and two metal clipping on either side. The clippings hold the denture in place, preventing the few remaining teeth from moving or getting damaged.
Immediate and Customized Dentures – if you want a quick solution, then same-day or immediate dentures are the way to go. However, if aesthetics is an important consideration, look into customized dentures. They may take longer, but they look just like your natural teeth and are customized to mimic your smile's natural shape and look.
Snap in Dentures – Snap-in dentures are a variation of full dentures. As the name suggests, these snap on to anchors placed within the gums with the help of implants. These are a lot more comfortable than traditional dentures as these don't move and are held securely in place with the help of attachments secure onto dental implants. They are also a lot more functional as they are removable, easy to clean, and a lot more comfortable and secure than other available options.
You can get dentures for your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. You can even get it for a few missing teeth or a full set of teeth. They help restore your dental structure's functionality, eliminating chewing problems, and restoring one's confidence, allowing them to smile without worrying about the appearance of their smile.
