All About Traditional Dentures
Losing teeth can be a stressful and uncomfortable experience, so dentures from Aspire Dental are a practical solution to restore your smile and quality of life.
Thanks to technological advancements, dentures have come a long way, and there are more options than ever to get your smile back. Traditional dentures are removable dental appliances made from acrylic and metal materials.
Traditional dentures are custom-made to fit snugly in your mouth and may require several fittings to achieve the perfect fit.
Types of Traditional Dentures
Full Dentures: Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw. They consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums and holds the replacement teeth in place.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used when some of the natural teeth remain. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal or acrylic base that your dentist will attach to your natural teeth with clasps.
The Benefits of Dentures
Improved appearance: Dentures can restore your smile and give you a more youthful appearance.
Better oral health: Dentures can help support your facial muscles, prevent bone loss in the jaw, and reduce the risk of gum disease.
Improved speech: Replacing missing teeth with dentures can improve your speech.
Improved diet: With dentures, you can eat a wider variety of foods, improving your overall nutrition.
What Are Denture Implants?
Implant dentures are a type of denture that Dr. Felder secures with implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jawbone.
Once the implants have fused with the bone, your dentist will attach the denture to provide a more stable and secure fit than traditional dentures.
Types of Implant Dentures
Bar-retained dentures: Bar-retained dentures use a thin metal bar attached to the implants. The denture is then attached to the bar with clips or other attachments.
Ball-retained dentures: Ball-retained dentures use a ball-and-socket mechanism to attach the denture to the implant. The ball is attached to the implant, and the socket is attached to the denture.
Differences Between Dentures
The main differences between dentures and implants include the following:
- Stability: Implants provide a more stable and secure fit than dentures.
- Cost: Implants are generally more expensive than dentures.
- Procedure: Implants require a surgical procedure, while dentures do not.
Find Your Perfect Fit
The best denture option for you depends on your individual needs and preferences. Dr. Felder will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to determine the best approach for your smile. Factors to consider include:
Cost: Implant dentures are slightly more expensive than traditional dentures.
Health: If you have a healthy jawbone and gums, you may be a good candidate for implant dentures.
Lifestyle: If you’re active and enjoy sports or other activities, implant dentures may be a better choice since they provide a more stable fit.
