Types of Dentures

Posted by Ghasem Darian on Apr 9 2023, 05:43 AM

At Winning Smiles Dentistry, dentures are prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth and can be made for both the upper and lower jaw. Over time, the jawbone can shrink if the teeth' roots are not stimulating, leading to changes in facial structure that can make a person appear older. By using dentures, you can prevent this natural loss of bone and restore the natural shape of your facial features. A complete denture might be the best option if you are missing many teeth in both jaws. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the gum line that does not need to be extracted. They fill in the gaps where teeth are missing and prevent other teeth from shifting position.

The Different Types of Dentures

Full Dentures

Your dentist can create a custom set of complete dentures to restore your smile after you have lost your teeth. These dentures are designed to fit comfortably over your gums and jawbone, restoring your smile's function and appearance. New dentures may feel strange as you get used to them, but they will gradually become more comfortable.

Partial Dentures

You can think of partial dentures as replacement teeth on a gum-colored base, resembling the gums and fitting snugly within the mouth. This prosthetic type is removable and often recommended if patients are missing a few teeth within the upper or lower jaw. As such, it is ideal for people who wish to avoid the cost and hassle of dental implants but still has sturdy and reliable teeth replacements.

The Benefits of Dentures

Improved Self-Esteem

By filling in gaps in your mouth with dentures, you can gain confidence as you flash your bright smile! Your teeth play an essential role in how others perceive you; if you have missing teeth or gaps in your smile, you are less likely to feel as confident in your appearance. With new dentures, you will finally feel great about your appearance and can interact naturally with others without feeling self-conscious.

Improved Chewing Ability

Dentures provide patients with improved chewing abilities, which is especially important for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. Complete tooth loss can affect a patient’s ability to chew food effectively, leading to nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition. When patients can eat correctly, their overall health can improve.

Benefits of dentures include improved chewing function and enhanced appearance. If you want high-quality dentures to improve the look of your smile, visit Winning Smiles Dentistry at 20165 N 67th Ave #103, Glendale, AZ 85308 or call (623) 777-7942.
