Restorative Procedure | Modern Denture Options
Dentures have been long been considered a standard for tooth replacement. While still effective, they come with unique positives and negatives. The later of which has been reduced by modern advances in dentistry and technology. There are three primary types of recommended Dentures:
Partial Dentures: Historically, partial dentures have been used to replace groups of teeth or a few teeth scattered across the lower or upper jaw. There are a variety of removable partial dentures available to patients and each one comes with its own set of benefits and disadvantages.
Full Dentures: Prosthetic teeth and gums used to replace missing teeth. The main difference between full and partial dentures is that full dentures are a total replacement system for either upper or lower teeth and, in some cases, both.
OverDentures: Overdentures are a more modern alternative to dentures, combining traditional denture technology with the latest advancements in dental implants. A primary benefit of this option includes the limited amount of bone loss where the implants are placed. This results in the procedure being more successful in the long run and helping to preserve facial structural integrity.
