Denture Types – Pros and Cons

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

A prosthetic device is an artificial replacement for a missing part of the body. Dental prosthetics such as dentures, replace human teeth. If you have suffered tooth loss due to disease or injury, an affordable dentist can help restore your smile and improve your health by creating either removable or permanent dentures to replace your missing teeth. Before you can wear dentures, your dentist in Crown Point may have to remove any remaining teeth and allow the tissues to heal. Depending on what type of work needs to be done, the process may take weeks or months to complete.

Know Your Options

Several types of affordable quality dentures are available:

  • A complete or full set of dentures is created to replace all upper or lower teeth.
  • Partial dentures correct gaps when only a few teeth are missing. Attachments are used to hold the dentures in place. Acrylic partial dentures form a plate that covers the entire roof of your mouth, while metal partial dentures only cover part of the area and are generally more comfortable to wear.
  • Immediate dentures are placed on the same day tooth extractions are performed. These serve as a temporary solution while permanent dentures are being made. Periodic adjustments are often required.
  • Overdentures fit over and attach to one or more natural teeth. Implants may also serve as an anchor for overdentures. Overdentures may require multiple dental appointments because of their complexity.

Pros and Cons of Wearing Dentures

  • The benefits of wearing dentures include improved appearance and self-esteem, prevention of tooth migration, and support for sagging facial muscles. With dentures, you may be able to eat and speak normally again.
  • Downfalls of dentures include a frustrating but temporary adjustment period, possible mouth irritation if dental hygiene is neglected, and a reduced ability to taste food. As your mouth changes shape over time, you may have to have your dentures adjusted or replaced.
