Types of Dentures

During your consultation with our team, we will carefully examine your mouth before we make a recommendation about which type of denture we believe would best fit your needs. Depending on the circumstances, we might determine that you are an ideal candidate for one of the following:

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fit in like a puzzle piece, working around the natural teeth so you can keep as much of your existing smile as possible. They are typically made out of acrylic, and they may have acrylic or metal clasps to help them remain secure in your mouth.

Full Dentures

As their name implies, full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are usually held in place via natural suction, sometimes with the help of adhesive. Their custom fit helps them to stay secure and comfortable during use. In most cases, their base is made out of acrylic while the teeth are constructed out of acrylic or porcelain.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are held in place via prosthetic tooth roots, called dental implants, which get inserted into the jawbone during a minimally invasive surgery. This is the most sturdy and reliable form of denture. It also has the longest life expectancy. However, its price can be significantly higher than that of a conventional denture.
