Dentures for Different Types of Tooth Loss
Dentures have been a part of prosthetic dentistry for as long as dental bridges, though traditionally, they were only designed for patients who had lost all of their teeth on the upper or lower dental ridge. Today, partial dentures can offer the same restorative benefits while also helping patients preserve the healthy, natural teeth that remain. Full dentures are still commonly recommended for completely edentulous patients, though like partial dentures, they’re highly customized to provide optimal cosmetic, restorative, and functional results. Dentures are typically crafted from lifelike porcelain, making your replacement teeth virtually indistinguishable from your healthy and natural smile.
While modern dentures can rebuild your smile with lifelike visual results, many patients can enjoy more comprehensive results with the help of dental implants. The prosthetic posts, which are inserted into your jawbone, serve to support your denture while also restoring stimulation within your jawbone. This reestablishes a healthy flow of nutrients to your jawbone, which improves your long-term oral health and the long-term functionality of your custom denture.
Rebuild Your Smile with a Custom Denture
Partial dentures can help you save the healthy teeth that you still have while replacing those you’ve lost. If you’ve lost all of them, then full dentures can completely rebuild your smile and your confidence.
