How to Choose the Right Denture Solution for You

Not sure which type of denture solution is right for you? With many denture types to choose from, it can be tough knowing which one will work best for you and your unique circumstances. Our article this week from our Calgary denture clinic aims to solve that problem for you.

The word "dentures" stills bring with it a negative connotation for most people, despite the amazing advancements that have been made over the past few decades when it comes to denture solutions. Technically speaking, dentures are just a removable plate or frame which hold artificial teeth. But most people immediately picture the classic stereotype of dentures popularized by cartoons and pop culture, namely them falling out at the worst time or being comically oversized. Neither of these two caricatures could be farther from the truth given how dentures look and function today. 

Let's take a look at some of the more common dentures out there now and see which one might be right for you.

How to Choose the Right Denture Solution for You

From complete dentures to dental implants, the world of tooth replacements has changed drastically over the last little while. With all the advancements, the term false teeth is barely uttered anymore. Instead, terms like "denture solutions" are starting to accurately represent just how far technology has come with respect to these vitally important prosthetics that allow their wearers to eat, talk, and smile confidently. 

But if you don't know where to start when it comes to picking the right denture solution for you, the list below should be a big help.

Complete or full dentures

These are what many people think of when they picture dentures. These traditional types of dentures are for people who are missing all of their natural teeth and they sit on top of the gums.

Partial dentures

Much like their name suggests, partial dentures are a denture solution for those who are only missing a few of their natural teeth, or for those who only have a few natural teeth remaining. Many professional hockey players wear partial dentures, thanks to the brutal nature of the sport and frequency with which teeth are lost when playing it.

Flexible dentures

Providing less rigidity and more comfort than partial dentures, flexible dentures are made from a plastic material which fits neatly into your mouth and they're virtually invisible. They also don't require metal clasps to hold them in place. These dentures are ideal for those who want something a bit more light and comfortable than what partial or complete dentures can provide.


Dental implants

Modern dental implants represent one of the biggest leaps forward tooth replacements have seen over the past half century. Using titanium roots inserted directly into the jawbone which attach to an artificial tooth, dental implants are best suited for those who are missing a single tooth or no more than three due to their higher cost.

Denture implants

Using the same principles that make dental implants such an attractive and durable choice, denture implants are one of the latest developments on the denture solution scene. Instead of one titanium root being inserted into the patient's jawbone, multiple ones are surgically placed and the denture prosthetic snaps onto the heads of the roots. This makes it extremely easy for the wearer to remove and clean the dentures, while still being able to easily and confidently eat, talk, and smile with them without having to ever worry about them shifting or falling out.

These dentures are ideal for those who would like a more permanent and easy to maintain denture solution. They're also extremely durable and attractive. 


More options than ever to choose from

Given the advancements in denture solutions over the years, people now have more options than ever before when it comes to replacing missing teeth. But with more options comes more confusion at times. Hopefully the above list has helped give you a better idea of which denture solution may be best for you.
