Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures can be used to treat patients of all ages who have one or a few teeth missing, as well as those who are missing one or both arches. To determine if dentures would be a suitable treatment for you, Dr. Moreau will thoroughly inspect your mouth during your first consultation. If he finds untreated tooth decay, gum disease, or another relevant concern, he will recommend treatments to help you achieve a healthier mouth that can safely support dentures.
Types of Dentures
There are different types of dentures to treat different types of tooth loss, and advances in dental technology have made these restorations completely lifelike and comfortable. Our team here in Covington will recommend one of the following treatments depending on your situation:
Partial dentures are used to replace several teeth and are clasped to the patient’s remaining natural teeth. The gum-colored base and high-quality artificial teeth blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, making your grin both functional and beautiful. These restorations are completely removable and can restore a smile after losing one or several teeth.
Many people deal with complete tooth loss, and full dentures can allow them to have a complete smile again. Just like partial dentures, full dentures boast a lifelike gum-colored base and beautiful prosthetic teeth, and may be held in place with natural suction, denture adhesive, or both. Full dentures are removable and incredibly comfortable.
Implant dentures work just like full dentures except they are anchored to dental implants surgically placed within the jawbone. This allows them to provide the patient with maximum stability and chewing force. This is the denture option of choice for those who love steak or corn-on-the-cob.
The Benefits of Dentures
Dentures have been a proven and popular solution to tooth loss for decades. A few of the many benefits dentures can bring you include:
- Allowing you to chew comfortably and speak clearly again.
- Preserving the youthful shape of the face.
- Each denture is customized to match each patient.
- Dentures can last for up to ten years with excellent care.
- Dentures are easy to clean and cost-effective.
