Types of Dentures

Missing teeth can negatively affect your everyday life in various ways, from the presence of self esteem issues to the impediment of properly eating or speaking. Fortunately, our expert team at Rockefeller Cosmetic Dentistry is dedicated to finding the perfect solution to restore your smile and get you back to living your life to the fullest! Dentures are one of the oldest and most trusted methods for restoring lost teeth. They are removable dental appliances that fit over your existing teeth and gums to both restore missing teeth and mimic a fully healthy smile.

Conventional

The remaining teeth are removed and a fully, removable denture is made to be placed over your exposed gum once the tissue has healed. This could take several months.

Immediate

During your first visit, your dentist will take measurements and build your denture, which will then be inserted during your next visit, on the same day as remaining teeth are pulled. You never have to go without teeth using this method, but the denture may need to be reconstructed after your jaw heals.

Overdenture

Occasionally, your dentist will find it more beneficial to save some of your remaining teeth to provide structure, support, and stability for the denture. An overdenture is placed over a small number of natural remaining teeth after being prepared by your dentist.

Dentures vs. Dental Implants

As opposed to dental implants, dentures provide structure and support to the jaw. Therefore, it is recommended for those with weakened jaw bones and gums to choose dentures. Alternatively, if your jaw bone is strong, implants have a variety of advantages over dentures. They are known to be easier to install, they require less healing time, and they can be less invasive to healthy remaining teeth.

The Process of Getting Dentures

First, your dentist will evaluate the current state of your dental health in order to conclude on the best course of treatment for your particular case. If the remaining teeth are unhealthy or unable to support a partial denture, your remaining teeth will be extracted to prepare for the placement of a full denture. The time that it takes your tooth sockets to heal varies depending on the quantity of teeth removed and also depending on your natural healing speed. An impression will then be made of your mouth to model the new dentures.
