North Hollywood patients ask about the different types of dentures
Dr. Edmond and the staff of North Hollywood’s A-Dental Center understand the importance of a beautiful, fully functioning smile. When tooth loss strikes, patients must speak to a dental professional about restorative solutions. Restoring the smile is essential to maintain the ability to speak and eat properly while keeping a smile looking its best. Many methods of restoration are available, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures.
Dentures can be an economic solution for patients who are on a tight budget. They can also be a great temporary solution for those who may be considering permanent options later on. There are several types of dentures available.
Partial dentures are made for patients who have lost one or more teeth within their dental arch. These dentures are made of metal and acrylic framework with false teeth affixed to slide into place when the denture is worn. This is a common denture used as an alternative to dental bridges or dental implants.
Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. They are held in place with suction or dental adhesives. They are made of high-quality acrylic, and they include false teeth and gum tissue. Dentures are customized to the needs of patients to ensure they look and feel their best.
Full dentures that require further stabilization and strength may be integrated with dental implants. Implants are placed into the jawbone and are made to connect with the dentures for a secure fit. This ensures dentures do not slide and rub against the gum tissue causing sores and discomfort for patients. This is a common complaint from denture-wearers, which can be resolved with the placement of implant-supported dentures.
