If you have missing or damaged teeth, dentures are a great option for restoring your smile. While many people prefer dental implants, these are not the best solution for everyone.

What Are Dentures and How Are They Different From Dental Implants?

Dentures differ from dental implants in that they are removable oral appliances that can be used to replace multiple missing teeth. They can help you feel confident about your appearance again, and you’ll be able to use them the same way you did your natural teeth. There are two types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

When are Complete Dentures Used?

Complete dentures are used when you require the replacement of your full dental arch. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Johnson may recommend replacing one or both of your dental arches. You also might need to use a denture adhesive to improve stability.

When are Partial Dentures Used?

Partial dentures are preferred when you have several natural teeth remaining in your dental arch. The partial denture involves a thin framework that attaches the removable partial dentures to your natural teeth to help secure the fit. Partial dentures are usually removable for proper cleaning.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Partial or complete dentures can help restore your smile, of course, but they do much more than that. They also can improve your ability to speak and eat, restore the natural volume to your facial appearance, and enhance your smile. Dr. Johnson will ensure your dentures are custom-made so they fit your individual smile and create an aesthetic appearance.
