Depending on your situation, the dentist at Amazing Smile Dental may recommend either complete or partial dentures to replace or fill in the spaces of your missing teeth. For your convenience, we've compiled some information to help you better understand the different types of dentures and their advantages:
Otherwise known as “immediate” or “conventional” dentures, complete dentures are the optimal solution for those who have lost all of their teeth or require removal of additional teeth. These dentures will improve the patient's ability to chew and speak, while also providing support for facial muscles. The options for complete dentures include a full denture for the lower or upper jaw, or both.
Removable or partial dentures are the optimal solution for those who still have a number of natural teeth remaining. These dentures will also enhance the smile and facial appearance by providing facial muscle support. Partial dentures attach to the natural teeth with metal clasps. These clasps are also attached to gum-coloured bases made of plastic.
Our professionals will help you get the right fit, style, and type of dentures for your needs. Before you know it, your smile will be as beautiful and natural-looking as you've always wanted. Our dentists will also give you the guidance and information you need to care for your new dentures! All you need to do is get in contact with our dental clinic and we will be happy to provide more information.
Just as with natural teeth, your dentures may become permanently stained without the proper care, so make sure to brush daily and remove food deposits and plaque from the dentures. For more information, please read our full guide to caring for dentures.
