Dentures have been around for centuries, helping people throughout history restore their smiles and regain the ability to eat and speak confidently. But with so many options available, navigating the world of dentures can feel overwhelming. This guide unravels the different types of dentures and their unique benefits, empowering you to make an informed decision for your individual needs.

  • Function: Replaces all missing teeth with a custom-molded set for a natural look and improved oral function.
  • Process: May require removal of remaining teeth and custom fitting for secure adhesion.
  • Maintenance: Daily removal and cleaning for optimal hygiene.

2. Partial Dentures: Filling the Gaps Discreetly

  • For whom: Suitable for individuals missing only a few teeth.
  • Function: Fills in missing teeth while preventing remaining teeth from shifting.
  • Components: Composed of a pink gum-colored base, prosthetic teeth, and clasps or wires for secure attachment.

3. Implant-Supported Dentures: Stability Meets Convenience

  • For whom: Individuals seeking a more permanent and stable denture solution.
  • Function: Secured by titanium implants fused to the jawbone, providing a natural feel and superior functionality.
