What are dentures?
Dentures are a tooth replacement option that restores the appearance and function of your smile. While conventional dentures are removable, you do have more secure options available to you that rely on supports from dental implants or surrounding teeth. Talk to your Meridian dentist at Riverbend Family Dental about what options are best for you.
Who are dentures for?
If you are missing teeth, particularly an entire arch, or row, of teeth, then dentures are likely a great option for you. No matter how you lost your teeth, dentures provide the restoration and functionality you need to reclaim your life.
Benefits of dentures:
- Enhanced self-confidence
- Long-lasting tooth replacement
- Restore your ability to chew and speak
- Restore the appearance and function of your smile
- Dentures are often more cost-effective than other tooth replacement options
Types of dentures
- Partial dentures: Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth and are custom-made to your jaw. In conjunction with restoring your smile and improving your ability to eat and speak, partial dentures also support the remaining teeth so that they do not move, promoting the health of the dental tissues and structures that are already in place in your mouth.
- Immediate full dentures: Immediate full dentures are inserted immediately after your teeth are removed. While this means that you will not be without teeth while the tissue heals, they must be relined after the tissue in your mouth heals because it will have changed its shape.
- Conventional full dentures: Conventional full dentures are inserted after the tissue in your mouth has healed from the removal of your teeth. However, during this healing time, you will be without teeth.
