At Village Smile Care, we understand the importance of a confident smile. If you’re missing teeth or experiencing dental issues that affect your smile and oral function, dentures could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Understanding Dentures

Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function, aesthetics, and confidence for individuals with partial or complete tooth loss. They consist of artificial teeth (pontics) set in a flesh-colored acrylic or resin base that closely resembles natural gum tissue. Dentures are custom-made to fit comfortably and securely over the gums, supporting facial muscles and enabling the wearer to chew, speak, and smile easily.

There are two main types of dentures: partial dentures, which replace one or more missing teeth and are supported by the remaining natural teeth or dental implants, and complete dentures, which replace all of the teeth in one or both dental arches (upper and lower) and rely on suction, adhesives, or dental implants for retention. 

Dentures are removable for easy cleaning and maintenance, and they can be adjusted or replaced as needed to ensure a proper fit and optimal function. Dentures offer a practical and cost-effective solution for restoring oral health and function for individuals experiencing tooth loss.

Types of Dentures

There are several types of dentures available to replace missing teeth, each designed to meet specific patient needs and preferences:

  • Complete Dentures: Also known as full dentures, complete dentures replace all of the teeth in one or both dental arches (upper and lower). The base is made of flesh-colored acrylic, and they are composed of supports with a full set of artificial teeth. Complete dentures are custom-made to fit snugly over the gums and, for retention purposes, rely on either suction or glue.
  • Partial Dentures: When there are some natural teeth that are still present in the dental arch, partial dentures are used to replace one or more lost teeth. They are made out of artificial teeth that are affixed to a framework made of either metal or acrylic that clasps onto the remaining natural teeth for support and stability. Depending on the patient’s needs, partial dentures can be removable or fixed (implant-supported).
  • Immediate Dentures: Immediately following the procedure, instant dentures are inserted into the mouth tooth extraction, allowing the patient to have replacement teeth while the gums heal. These dentures are pre-made based on measurements taken before tooth extraction and may require adjustments as the gums shrink and heal over time.
  • Overdentures: Overdentures are removable dentures that fit over dental implants or retained roots of natural teeth. They provide increased stability and retention compared to conventional dentures and help preserve bone structure by stimulating the underlying jawbone.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are fixed dentures supported implants are dental prostheses that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They make available superior stability, functionality, and comfort compared to traditional dentures and eliminate the need for adhesives or clasps.
  • All-on-4 Dentures: All-on-4 dentures are implant-supported dentures that it is possible to replace an entire arch of teeth with just four dental implants. strategically placed in the jawbone. This innovative technique provides a permanent and natural-looking solution for edentulous patients. 

Each type of denture comes with a number of benefits and considerations, and the decision is influenced by a number of elements including the extent of tooth loss, oral health status, bone density, and patient preferences. A thorough evaluation and consultation with a dentist or prosthodontist are essential to determine the most suitable type of denture for each case.
