Which Type of Denture Solution Is Right For You?

For patients who have experienced tooth loss, there are several tooth replacement options to choose from. Discussing your choices with an experienced and qualified denturist can ensure you get the right type for your needs, at a great price!

Here are some of your denture options:

1. FULL VS PARTIAL DENTURES

Traditional dentures are often the cheapest tooth replacement option. They are designed to sit on top of your gums and are supported by denture glue or adhesive.

FULL DENTURES

Full dentures are recommended when you need ALL of your teeth replaced. This is often the case if:

  • You have extensive gum disease
  • Many teeth are missing
  • Bone loss is causing your teeth to shift irreparably

While some patients simply require either a full upper or a full lower denture, others may need both.

 
PARTIAL DENTURES

Partial dentures are an ideal solution for patients who still have SOME or MOST of their natural teeth remaining. They bridge the gap between missing teeth to prevent potential infection and additional tooth loss.

They are a good option for patients who have:

  • 2-4 consecutively missing teeth
  • Healthy bone tissue
  • Budget constraints
 

2. DENTURE IMPLANTS

Today, more and more patients are choosing denture implants over traditional dentures as a solution for smile restoration. Unlike full/partial dentures, denture implants do not sit on your gums but are supported by tooth implants for a more stable, comfortable fit.

Some of the incredible benefits of denture implants vs traditional dentures include:

  • Denture implants preserve remaining jawbone and maintain your facial structure
  • They feel, look and function more like your natural teeth
  • There is no need for adhesives or messy creams
  • Denture implants are an investment that can last a lifetime
  • This tooth replacement option is much more simple and easy to take care of

Even though, in the short-term, traditional dentures may be cheaper, investing in a high-quality implant-supported denture can significantly reduce your denture repair and replacement costs, saving you money in the long run.

 

3. FLEXIBLE PARTIAL DENTURES

Unlike traditional, acrylic dentures, flexible partial dentures are made from a thermoplastic nylon resin that is ultra-thin and very flexible. This allows for a more comfortable eating, chewing and speaking.

Candidates for flexible partial dentures include those who:

  • Have lost a group of teeth from the same area of the mouth
  • Are looking for a more cost-effective and faster treatment option compared to denture implants
  • Are waiting for their tooth implants to fuse with their jawbone
  • Are looking for a more comfortable, durable alternative to acrylic partial dentures
 
However, it is important to note that flexible dentures do have certain limitations and CANNOT be used for full dentures or for patients with extensive periodontal disease.
