Types of Dentures

We have multiple denture options, which allow us to restore various patterns of tooth loss. These solutions include:

Partial Dentures

If you’re missing teeth randomly throughout your smile, we may recommend partial dentures! This tooth replacement allows us to restore the missing gaps in your teeth like putting together the pieces of a puzzle. Partial dentures are artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and they’re usually held in place using metal clasps. The result is that you can enjoy a beautifully complete smile while leaving your remaining natural teeth intact.

Full Denture

We use full dentures to restore the smiles of patients who are missing all or most of their teeth. These lifelike replacements are made possible with a durable, gum-colored resin base attached to artificial teeth. Full dentures rest on top of your gums, using suction to stay in place. Sometimes, they may require denture adhesive to keep them stable.

Implant-Retained Dentures

If you’re looking for the most secure and strong smile, an implant-retained denture is your best option. Dr. Earnest combines dental implants with dentures for the most natural looking and feeling full smile replacement. Dental implants are rooted in the jawbone, which stabilizes your denture, allowing you to eat, speak, and chew with ultimate confidence. Plus, dental implants stimulate your jawbone to prevent it from deteriorating after tooth loss.

The Benefits of Dentures

We offer multiple options for dentures, which give our patients a variety of benefits, including:

  • Appearance: if you’ve been hiding your smile due to missing teeth, dentures allow you to grin with ultimate confidence once more!
  • Convenience: Full dentures are completely removeable, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze. Plus, implant-retained or partial dentures are easier to care for than a smile with missing teeth.
  • Diet: You may have switched to a soft food diet if you’re missing many teeth. However, dentures allow you to eat more variety, adding nutrition to your diet.
