3 Types of Dentures To Consider

Dentures have been a part of human life for thousands of years. The oldest record of their use dates back to 700 BC in Northern Italy. Dentures have been used throughout the history of the Roman Empire and beyond. If you are considering dentures or have been advised to use them, know you are not alone. Men and women have been wearing dentures through some of the most significant events in history.

There are different types of dentures available to suit your needs. Dentures can help your mouth feel normal again regardless of how you lost your teeth. The cosmetic benefits of dentures are obvious, but they also help people eat and speak, which is why they have been so popular throughout history. 

Here are the 3 types of dentures we offer:

  1. Full Dentures: These are custom-molded to your gums and are used when you have lost most or all of your teeth. Some teeth may need to be removed if they are still in place. An adhesive holds the dentures in place, and they should be removed and cleaned every night.
  2. Partial Dentures: These are used when you are missing only certain portions of your teeth. They help your teeth look natural and prevent remaining teeth from becoming crooked. Partial dentures consist of a pink artificial root that matches the color of your gums, false teeth to replace the missing ones, and sometimes a clip or wire to hold everything in place.
  3. Implant-Supported Dentures: These are held in place by four implants that fuse to your jawbone, allowing you to snap the dentures in and out for cleaning. This type of denture does not require adhesive.

We’d love to help you find the right type of denture for your needs. Thanks to centuries of innovation, modern dentures are more comfortable, convenient, and realistic than ever before. If you think dentures might be right for you, call us at 720-617-1499. We will discuss the different types of dentures and the fitting process with you, so you can achieve the smile you want.
