What kind of dentures can I get?

Altitude Family Dental offers three choices for custom dentures.

  • Partial Dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth on an arch, and they use metal clasps to grip onto nearby teeth and remain in place.
  • Full Dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, either all of the top teeth, bottom teeth, or both. They rest on top of the gums and can use adhesive to stay in place.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures attach to a few dental implants that are placed throughout the arch. This makes the denture very stable and reliable.

How do you take care of dentures?

They need to be brushed and soaked in denture solution at least once per day to keep them looking and feeling great. They should be brushed with a soft-bristle toothbrush and denture cleaner or liquid soap, as most kinds of toothpaste are too abrasive. Soaking them overnight kills even more bacteria and also keeps them moist, which helps them retain their custom shape. Taking them out before going to sleep will also give your gums time to relax, which tends to make dentures more comfortable to wear.

Are dentures the best tooth-replacement method?

They are not objectively the best method for replacing missing teeth, but they might be the best option for your smile! Partial dentures are less invasive than dental implants and don’t require nearby teeth to be modified like dental bridges do. On the other hand, they are also not as durable as dental implants. Full dentures are the preferred method for replacing an entire arch of teeth at once, and whether you choose to use traditional full or implant-supported dentures will depend on you and your specific needs and preferences.
