Types of Dentures
Dentures today aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution – they are custom-made! Depending on your unique dental needs, Dr. Condie will recommend one of the below options:
If you are missing teeth, but still have a few of your natural ones intact, then partial dentures are ideal. By anchoring natural-looking, durable prosthetic teeth onto a gum-colored base, this restoration can seamlessly fill in the gaps in your smile. Plus, the discreet metal clasps are virtually undetectable and provide maximum stability.
Full dentures, on the other hand, are the best solution for patients missing an entire arch of teeth. Although this option is similar to partials in their lifelike look and durable makeup, they are distinctly different since they are held in place with natural suction, denture adhesive, or a mixture of the two.
Implant dentures are where traditional dentures and state-of-the-art dental implants intersect. The primary advantage of this tooth-replacement option is that it is unmatched in durability, allowing you to bite, chew, speak, and laugh without stressing about embarrassing slipping.
The Benefits of Dentures
Dentures have been used for decades to help patients struggling with advanced tooth loss. However, they’ve advanced exponentially in the last decade or so, which provides patients with a number of benefits including:
- Custom-made approach, leaving obtrusive, clunky prosthetics in the past.
- Lifelike look and feel, allowing you to go about your day with complete confidence.
- Cost-effective, since they require a lower upfront cost.
- Easy cleaning, ensuring your dentures stay in pristine condition for years to come.
- Improved oral health, protecting your oral cavity from decay, disease, and damage.
Tips for Maintaining Your Dentures
Dentures can last 10+ years, which is great news for your smile, bite, and wallet. The key to prolonging their lifespan is caring for them properly. To start, make sure to brush and floss any of your remaining natural teeth and clean your dentures daily with a denture-friendly toothbrush and cleaner. Additionally, avoid poor dental habits at all costs, like using tobacco products and chewing on ice. And, of course, visit our team every six months for a dental checkup and professional cleaning.
