Choosing a denture is an important decision and you need to know the facts. These are just a few frequently asked questions and answers about dentures:
What are some of the benefits of wearing a denture?
Wearing a denture restores your full chewing function, which aids your digestion and your overall health. You also get to enjoy eating the foods you love, without worrying about chewing ability. Dentures also help restore your self-esteem and self-confidence by giving you an outstanding smile. Your smile is often what people notice first about you, and the right denture can help your smile get noticed. You may also look younger wearing a denture because dentures can restore the youthful contours in your face, an important part of a younger-looking face.
What is a partial denture?
A partial denture is designed to replace one or several missing teeth, but not an entire arch of teeth. Partials can be made in a sturdy, permanent conventional type, or a transitional, temporary partial if you are planning on dental implants at a later date.
What is a full denture?
A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth, upper or lower. Full dentures can be made as an immediate denture, which is placed immediately after your teeth are removed, or a conventional denture which is made after you have healed completely, at around 6 to 8 weeks. If you choose an immediate denture, a conventional denture can be made for you later, after your tissue has healed.
What is an implant-supported denture?
An implant-supported denture, which is also known as an over denture, is snapped in place over dental implants. The implants provide a strong foundation for the denture, and can help maintain bone structure, bone density, and a firm jawline.
