Types of Dentures

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Fern Creek Dentistry
Types of DenturesWhen you visit our dentist with missing teeth, we may recommend different treatment plans, including bridges, implants or dentures. Therefore it's crucial to know the different types of dentures available as they are made from different materials to serve different purposes.

Full Dentures

They are also referred to as complete dentures and are recommended, especially when one is missing all sets of teeth. Complete dentures are made from porcelain materials with a touch of the metal base to hold them together and leave you with an ideal smile. They consist of the upper and lower sets that rest on their respective gum tissues. Our dentists will apply denture adhesive to eliminate the chances of food remains causing discomfort and give you a peaceful life.

Partial Dentures

These types of dentures are fitted when one has a small number of missing teeth, unlike complete dentures. They contain the upper or lower set of dentures to fill the left gap, uplifting your confidence when interacting with other people.

Temporary Dentures

Dentists recommend temporary dentures to offer short-term solutions when you experience missing teeth while you await the fitting of the permanent dentures. They enable one to carry on their usual eating habits while the mouth is healing simultaneously.

Flexible Dentures

These dentures are classified as partial, although made from different materials such as nylon. Their beneficial impacts include the comfortability properties they bring forth as they do not use metals, unlike ordinary dentures. If you are new to wearing dentures, our dentists may advise starting with flexible dentures.

Our offices have various types of dentures for all our patients' needs; hence, when you decide to have one, visit our practices today. Our team of professionals will advise you on the best dentures depending on your conditions and preferences. Contact us for appointment bookings.
