Choosing the Right Type Of Dentures for Your Smile

Dentures are a practical solution that many people choose to improve both qualities of life and the appearance of missing teeth. Different dentures are available depending on a patient's situation and lifestyle. During the initial consultation, your denturist will work with you to determine the treatment and appliance that is most suitable. Appearances and comfort will vary by recommended solution.  In this article, we discuss Dentures typically utilized by our patients at Future Smiles Denture Clinic.

Four Most Common Types Of Dentures Explained

The right set of dentures can help restore and complete a brighter smile. Choosing the right type of dentures can make all the difference when it comes to convenience, cost, and comfort. 

Standardized Full Set of Complete Dentures

A full set of dentures refers to the fact that all spots that were once available for your natural teeth will now be taken up by a set of artificial teeth. A natural looking tooth replacement option for patients who have very few remaining natural teeth. Also known as “false teeth'' , a full set of complete dentures sits on top of the gum lines in the mouth. 

Partial Set of Dentures

These types of dentures are meant to blend in, and fit around your natural teeth. These types of dentures are meant for patients who still have some remaining natural teeth and need dentures to fit around them. Partial dentures are convenient because they are easily removable. Also, partial dentures prevent further shifting of your bite alignment because they fill the empty spaces in between any missing teeth. 

Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures are the ideal choice when it comes to stability and comfort. They can snap conveniently into place and do not require metal clasps to keep them stable. The materials are soft, hypoallergenic, and biocompatible. From an aesthetic point of view, this style of dentures are hardly noticeable. Lastly, this type of denture also has the added convenience of being easily removable.   

Custom Equilibrated Full Dentures

Custom equilibrated full sets of dentures have been increasingly popular lately because of the precise personalization of the dentures to your unique jaw movements and bone structures. Equilibrated dentures use high-quality materials in the base and the tooth itself that feels stable, secure, and allows for a smooth transition into a new pair of dentures in the future.
