Types of Dentures: Which is Best For You?

December 11, 2019 | Blog

As someone who is looking to invest in a pair of dentures, the many different options that exist can be a bit confusing. Your dentist will know what kind of dentures you need best, but it’s always a good idea to research before you are seen. Here is a list of the main types of dentures that will help you decide which ones will suit you best.

Complete Dentures

Full/complete dentures are for patients who have lost all their teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly, removable and resemble natural teeth. The set consists of both the top and bottom teeth, and they can last up to 10 years with proper care.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for you if you still have at least one remaining tooth. They are typically secured in the mouth using a metal clip to fill any gaps with natural-looking teeth. Partial dentures are usually removable as well, but speak to your dentist about whether removable partial dentures would be right for you.

Custom Dentures

There are a number of other types out there, such as temporary dentures, flexible dentures and tooth implants. Temporary dentures are designed to be placed in your mouth as soon as your teeth are removed – with the purpose of getting you used to the feeling of dentures before getting full ones. Flexible dentures are similar to partial dentures, only the material gives a lot more and are known to be more comfortable than standard partial dentures. A tooth implant is essentially screwed into your jaw to replace a single tooth.

Everyone is unique, and there is always the perfect option available just for you. If you’re looking to invest in a brand new smile, contact us at Gulf Coast Dental for affordable services that will make you grin from ear to ear!
