As long as you possess the following criteria, you should have no problem rebuilding your smile with dentures:
During your consultation with Dr. Kandov, she will thoroughly examine your oral cavity and facial structure using advanced technology and equipment to identify whether it is possible for you to receive dentures or any kind.
There are three different types of dentures you may be eligible to receive. These include:
Should you be missing all your teeth along the top or bottom arch, or both, a full denture can restore the look of your smile. Using artificial teeth that are placed into a gum-colored, acrylic base, your natural suction will help to keep them in place.
If you are missing several teeth along an arch, a partial denture can be used to restore your smile. These missing teeth can either be consecutive or spread out. Using the same materials as a full denture, the only difference is that a partial denture will have clasps or clips that attach to your natural teeth to hold them in place.
If you prefer a more stable, permanent solution, implant-retained dentures can give you the look you desire. Instead of having a restoration sit on top of your gum line much like a full or partial denture, an implant-retained denture uses titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. After months of healing and allowing the implants to fuse to the bone and surrounding tissues, your customized denture is secured to the top of the implants to create a fully restored smile.
Depending on the type of denture you receive, the benefits can vary, but the one thing they all have in common is their ability to restore the look of your smile. While full and partial dentures can give you increased confidence, improved functionality, and greater peace of mind, implant-retained dentures offer permanence, longevity (30+ years or more), and more stability.
It is ultimately your decision as to which type of tooth replacement you prefer, but if you do find yourself leaning toward one that requires implants, you will need a strong jawbone before moving forward.
