Types of Dentures

Full Dentures

Full dentures are the type of appliance you most likely picture when you think about dentures. They feature false teeth set in pink resin which is designed to look like gums. This type of denture slides over the entire upper or lower gums, so the edge of the denture is hidden underneath the lip.

Full dentures are custom made in a laboratory from an impression we make of your mouth. When full dentures fit properly, they should stay in without any adhesive. However, some patients do like to use adhesive for added security. With proper care, your full dentures should last up to 10 years.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed for patients who only have a few missing teeth. Rather than setting false teeth in resin like full dentures, partial dentures use a wire framework, similar to a retainer, to hold false teeth in place. Partial dentures are helpful in preventing natural teeth from shifting into the gaps left by missing teeth.

Partial dentures do not require adhesive, as the wire framework gently holds the entire denture in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures rely on dental implants that have been installed in the jaw bone for stability. While you can have a permanent bridge fastened to implants, some patients prefer to use implant-supported dentures because it allows them to remove their false teeth if need be. Even though they are removable, implant-supported dentures offer greater stability.

How to Care for Your Dentures

  • Do not let your dentures dry out. Instead, keep your dentures in a glass of denture cleaner or water when you’re not wearing them. Do not store your dentures in hot water.
  • See your dentist regularly to ensure your dentures still fit properly. Your mouth will most likely change as you get older, which can cause your dentures to irritate and possibly injure your mouth.
  • Brush your dentures every day to remove bacterial buildup.
  • Brush your gums and tongue every day to stimulate blood flow and prevent the build-up of any bacteria.
