What Are the Different Kinds of Dentures?

Getting Fort Pierce dentures has several benefits, particularly if you have difficulty speaking and eating. When teeth are lost, your face’s bone structure gradually deteriorates, giving your face a weak-looking appearance. If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dentures can help support your face.

Teeth have a significant role in our looks and our ability to maintain positive social interactions. Teeth, whether natural or not, allow us to grin while giving the face a proper framework. Here are some types of dentures to help you decide what to get.

Different Kinds of Dentures

Full Dentures

You should obtain a complete denture if you have lost all of your teeth or if your current set needs to be removed because of tooth decay, an infection, pain, or other dental issues. Complete dentures can be taken in and out and rest on the gums. Some full dentures can also be implanted in your mouth so that you don’t need to remove them anymore. 

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a fantastic option for replacing one or more missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They are made of gum-colored bases and stick to your teeth to retain your replacement teeth in place. Partial dentures are often used for patients with missing or severely damaged teeth.  

Dentures Supported by Implants

Dental implants are utilized to support the fake teeth in implant-supported dentures. The denture can stay in place thanks to the implant’s strong support for a secure base.  

Other Types of Dentures   

  • Snap-in prosthetics  
  • Overdentures  
  • Flexible dentures
