Types of Dentures

Did you know there are multiple types of denture prosthetics available? Depending on your needs and the information collected at your consultation, your treatment plan could look very different based on which option you choose. However, whatever form your denture treatment takes, United Dental Centers of Merrillville offers brilliant results.

Partial Dentures

If you’re just missing a few teeth in a row, or even in different parts of your mouth, a partial denture could offer the most conservative solution. These prosthetic teeth are attached to your remaining natural teeth via metal brackets or clips. This eliminates the large gaps that could cause alignment problems or issues with how your teeth fit together.

Full Dentures

A full denture is a great way to restore the functionality of your mouth if you’re missing a whole dental arch, or even all of your natural teeth. A full denture consists of an acrylic base that is custom fitted to your gums and durable porcelain teeth that are fabricated to provide the best comfort for everyday wear. They adhere to your gums through natural suction, forgoing the need for additional attachments.

Implant Dentures

If you’re worried about stability issues, an implant denture is the best choice. These are a more permanent solution, anchored in place by four to six dental implants. The nature of an implant denture also offers unique benefits like easier maintenance and jawbone stimulation that keeps your facial structure looking younger over time.
