The different types of dentures that may be suitable for you

Dentures are a common and effective solution for individuals who have lost teeth due to various reasons. Choosing the right type of dentures can significantly improve one’s oral health, appearance, and quality of life. In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of dentures available and help you determine which option may be suitable for you.

1. Conventional Full Dentures: Conventional full dentures are used when all teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing. These dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and provide a natural-looking smile. They are removable and require regular cleaning and maintenance.

2. Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are recommended for individuals who have some natural teeth remaining. They are designed to fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and can be attached to the natural teeth using metal clasps or precision attachments. Partial dentures are removable and can improve chewing ability and speech.

3. Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are securely attached to dental implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone. These dentures offer greater stability and function compared to traditional dentures. Implant-supported dentures can prevent bone loss and provide a more natural feel when eating and speaking.

4. Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are placed immediately after tooth extraction, allowing patients to have teeth during the healing process. These dentures are a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made. Immediate dentures help maintain facial aesthetics and function until permanent dentures are ready.

5. Overdentures: Overdentures are designed to fit over a small number of remaining natural teeth or dental implants. They provide added stability and support compared to conventional dentures. Overdentures can help preserve the remaining teeth and prevent further bone loss in the jaw.
