Removable Dentures

Though many advances have been made in the field of dentistry, loss of teeth is still an ongoing problem In the United States, 26% of adults between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-five have lost all of their teeth. Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile and affordable is a set of removable dentures.

Standard Full Dentures

Standard full dentures are ones that comprise a full set of upper and lower teeth. This type of denture uses suction to stay in place. However, it is for this reason that standard full dentures require routine visits to the dentist. The dentures are susceptible to shrinkage, thus creating an ill-fitting prosthetic that will result in the atrophy of the jawbone.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are dentures that replace only a limited number of teeth, and not an entire set. They are much more secure than standard full dentures, and are more comfortable.

Implant dentures

Implants are installed in the mouth so that the dentures have something to hold onto. The cosmetic denture will either rest on or snap onto the implant. What this does is allow the denture to stay in place without the chance of it moving around, which makes the denture more comfortable than a standard one.

If you are in need of dentures or partials, give Dr. Head a call for a consultation.
