Do You Need Complete or Partial Dentures?

The type of denture that is right for you will depend on the number of teeth missing and the condition of your remaining teeth. Dr. Perno may recommend complete dentures if you are missing all your teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures, on the other hand, restore your smile when some healthy, natural teeth remain. If, however, the remaining teeth are in poor condition and need to be removed, complete or full dentures may be the best option.

What Are the Types of Dentures?

At Highrise Dental, we offer a range of denture options, including the following:

  • Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are created before removing any remaining damaged teeth. During the healing period, your mouth will change in shape, so your dentures may not fit the way they should. Immediate dentures are temporary solutions until your mouth is ready for traditional dentures or implant restorations.
  • Traditional Dentures: These aesthetic dentures are created after any remaining teeth are removed, and the area heals. They take into account the subtle details of your mouth, providing a better fit and function than immediate dentures.
  • Partial Dentures: Partial dentures typically consist of one or several replacement teeth set in metal frameworks. They attach to healthy teeth using metal clasps or precision attachments. Partial dentures fill gaps between your natural teeth, restoring your complete smile.
  • Implant-Retained and Implant-Supported Dentures: These superior restorations rely on dental implants placed into your jaw for support. They offer unmatched comfort, security, and stability. Your new replacement teeth will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Complete and Partial Dentures?

Replacing missing teeth with complete or partial dentures helps support your facial muscles and structure, preventing a sunken appearance. Your new restorations will allow you to enjoy many more of your favorite foods, speak more clearly, and smile with confidence once again.

If you are missing one or several teeth, partial dentures can safeguard your oral health. Leaving a gap in your smile can lead to the remaining teeth shifting out of alignment, leaving you with crooked teeth and problems with the bite. The imbalance resulting from missing teeth can also increase the risk of periodontal disease, uneven tooth wear, and TMJ problems. Partial dentures keep your remaining teeth from shifting, preventing the complications that often follow tooth loss.
