Choose Among Several Types of Dentures
You have many options for new dentures to suit your needs. Dr. Thrasher will happily discuss all the possibilities with you so you can make the decision that works best for you. Here’s a rundown of dentures options you can choose from:
- Conventional full dentures – These are the traditional style of denture you may be most familiar with. You can be fitted for either a full upper denture, lower denture, or both. They can easily be removed for daily cleaning. With proper care, these dentures are designed to last for several years.
- Conventional partial dentures – These dentures are similar to full dentures, but are used when you have some healthy teeth still remaining. They usually attach to your teeth using clasps and, like full dentures, can be easily removed for cleaning.
- Implant-retained dentures – This style of denture provides a more stable and secure fit than conventional dentures. They stay in place because they attach to dental implants with a convenient snap-and-ball system. These dentures are designed to be removed for easy daily cleaning. A big advantage to this style of denture is that dental implants stimulate jawbone growth just like your natural teeth do, so they prevent bone deterioration that is common with tooth loss.
- Implant-supported dentures – These are the most stable of all dentures because they attach to a bar that runs along your dental implants. They are also very comfortable because the bar and implants transfer biting force to your jawbone, the same way that your natural teeth do. Just as with implant-retained dentures, the dental implants securing these dentures will prevent jawbone loss.
Enjoy An Easy Process to Get Your Dentures
No matter which type of dentures you choose, Dr. Thrasher will begin the process by taking images of your teeth using safe, digital X-rays that produce less radiation than standard X-rays. Then, instead of traditional dental impressions that involve putting messy goop in your mouth, we will take comfortable digital impressions so that your new dentures can be accurately crafted.
