Why It’s Important to Replace Missing Teeth 

When you have missing teeth, it affects more than just your smile’s appearance and your self-confidence. There are other implications that can affect your oral health and overall health as well.

  • Missing teeth cause the remaining teeth to shift
  • You have an increased risk of developing gum disease
  • Cavities are more likely to form in your remaining teeth
  • Your speech is affected, and you can’t speak as clearly
  • You can experience uncomfortable or inefficient chewing, affecting your nutrition

Different Types of Dentures 

Dentures are an affordable and effective option for patients, whether you’re missing just a few teeth or your entire dental arch. There are several different types of dentures, and these four are the most common.

Removable Partial Dentures

If you’re missing just a few teeth in your dental arch, you can consider a set of partial dentures. These dentures are made from a metal framework and snapped into place onto your remaining natural teeth using clasps. Partial dentures rely on your natural teeth for stability and support.

Removable Complete Dentures

These are traditional dentures held in place via either denture adhesive or suction. Removable complete dentures may be what you picture when you think of traditional dentures. Removable complete dentures replace all of your teeth and are an excellent option for people who have lost all of their teeth.

Immediate Dentures

With immediate dentures, you can get your dentures the same day that you have your teeth extracted. When you leave the office, you’ll have your new appliance in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are secured with titanium screws placed strategically into your jawbone. The implants support your dentures and function nearly as efficiently as your natural teeth.
