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.

What Issues Can Invisalign® Fix?

Invisalign® is a popular orthodontic treatment known for its aesthetic appeal and effectiveness in correcting many dental issues. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® uses clear, plastic aligners that are virtually invisible, making them a preferred choice for adults and teenagers who are self-conscious about their smiles. Here are the issues Invisalign can fix:

  1. Crowded Teeth
    • Crowded teeth occur when there is insufficient space in the jaw for all teeth to fit naturally, leading to overlapping, twisting, or being pushed out of the row.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: Invisalign® aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into proper alignment. Invisalign® not only improves the appearance of your smile but also makes it easier to clean your teeth effectively, reducing the risk of gum disease and decay.
  2. Overbite
    • An overbite is when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. Overbites are often genetic, but thumb-sucking is another main cause.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: Invisalign® can correct an overbite by realigning the teeth and distributing the bite force more evenly, which can improve jaw function and prevent wear on the teeth.
  3. Underbite
    • An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front upper teeth, often due to undergrowth of the upper jaw or overgrowth of the lower jaw.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: Invisalign® aligners can move the lower teeth back while bringing the upper teeth forward, which helps to achieve a more balanced bite and improve the overall facial profile.
  4. Crossbite
    • A crossbite is when some of the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when the mouth is closed, which can cause uneven wear and increase the risk of gum disease and bone loss.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: Invisalign® aligners gradually move the misaligned teeth to the correct position, allowing for a healthier bite and reducing the risk of dental complications.
  5. Gaps Between Teeth
    • Gaps between teeth can occur naturally or as a result of habits like thumb-sucking or tooth loss.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: Invisalign® aligners can close the spaces between teeth, leading to a more even and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  6. General Misalignment
    • Even minor misalignment can affect the way you smile and chew. Invisalign® is suitable for correcting these less severe cases of misaligned teeth.
    • How Invisalign® Helps: The aligners make incremental adjustments to the teeth’s position, which can improve the functionality of the teeth and enhance smile aesthetics.
