If you have lost an entire arch of natural teeth, a full denture can instantly bring them all back. This custom-made prosthetic consists of a pink acrylic base and an entire row of artificial teeth. It is designed to sit on top of the gums and stay in place with a natural suction. For a bit of added security, you can purchase some denture adhesive, but that shouldn’t be necessary. A traditional full denture is removable and should be taken out while you’re sleeping and cleaning your mouth.
A partial denture may be right for you if you are missing several teeth throughout your mouth and want to preserve the rest of your natural, healthy pearly whites. Like a full denture, a partial has a gum-colored base and false teeth, but instead of suction, it remains in place with metal clasps that fit behind the natural teeth. Traditional partials are also designed to be removable.
In most cases, we strongly recommend that our patients consider attaching their new or current denture to dental implants. These titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone, acting as the roots of your lost teeth. Because they stimulate your jawbone, they prevent the bone atrophy that often occurs after tooth loss, which is why many elderly people’s faces appear “hunched.” Once your dentures have been secured by dental implants in North Grafton, your new smile will feel more stable, restore more of your biting and chewing power, and last for decades longer than a traditional denture. Oftentimes, they’re also fixed in your mouth, so you can maintain them in the practically the same way as you would care for natural teeth.
