What is a Full Denture?
Are you missing an entire row of teeth? Whether you don’t have any remaining teeth in your top or bottom arch, a full denture is likely the best solution for you. This denture is custom-made from either ceramic or acrylic restorations which are then placed inside of a gum-colored base. This base is designed to match your existing gum tissue as closely as possible.
To create a full denture, we start by capturing dental impressions of your mouth, which is then sent to an offsite dental lab of trusted technicians our office partners with. Your impression mold is then used to design and fabricate your future prosthesis. After it is created, you’ll come back to our office to have it fitted. We’ll go over the steps to wearing and cleaning the denture as well as products that can help make this process as smooth as possible.
Are Partial Dentures the Same?
Partial dentures are a bit different in a few unique ways. For starters, they are only meant to fill the gaps in either your top or bottom arch, much like how a puzzle piece fits into a larger puzzle. This effectively prevents neighboring teeth from shifting out of place and making your smile and bite uneven. While they are also made from ceramic and acrylic materials to ensure natural-looking esthetics, they use metal clasps that wrap around teeth to stay in place rather than solely rely on natural suction to the gums.
Benefits of Using Full or Partial Dentures
Whether you’re missing a handful of teeth throughout your mouth or an entire arch, dentures can offer many lasting benefits for your diet and overall quality of life. While giving back your smile is one obvious benefit, it’s far from the only one you can expect. For example:
- Dentures work to reduce the level of “facial collapse” that can occur when teeth are missing. This ensures your smile and face look fuller.
- Dentures are typically covered by dental insurance, at least for a portion of your care. Even then, they remain one of the most affordable solutions for severe tooth loss.
- Whether you need full or partial dentures, your diet will thank you after receiving them. You can enjoy many more foods you love with a denture. Even foods that were totally off the table can be more easily consumed, (especially when cut into smaller pieces.)
