If you’ve been considering dentures, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed. There is a lot of information out there, and there are tons of different options. Which dentures are right for you and your needs, and how do they work?
Don’t let questions about dentures stop you from getting the new set of teeth you need to look and feel your best while you go about your daily life! Today, we’ll walk you through the basics of dentures.
Types of Dentures
If you’ve never had dentures or done much research into them, you may not be familiar with how they work and what types are available. Dentures have come a long way in the last few decades, and there are now plenty of options depending on your needs.
For example, if you’re looking for traditional dentures on a budget, BPS ® dentures are an affordable, high-quality option designed to be well-fitted, comfortable, and attractive without breaking the bank. Alternatively, if you want your dentures to do more than just replace your missing teeth, Fountain of Youth dentures® not only offer a comfortable, functional fit, but are designed to fit the shape of your jaw and face, allowing your muscles to contribute to keeping the dentures in place. The careful fit of Fountain of Youth dentures ensures that your dentures look just as natural as your real teeth — and can even perform a sort of “face lift” by providing the support that your facial tissues need to prevent a sunken appearance.
These types of dentures will require a few appointments to ensure that your dentist can get the perfect fit. But when you leave with your new dentures, they’ll be custom-created for your mouth for optimal comfort and ease.
Both BPS and Fountain of Youth dentures can be removed easily when they aren’t needed, such as during sleep. But if you’re looking for a more permanent option, you may want to consider implant dentures. This one-day procedure not only provides sturdy, secure dentures that won’t budge when you eat or speak, but the implantation process even helps your jawbone retain bone density, ensuring longer effectiveness of the dentures.
Just missing a few teeth? Partial dentures are a great solution if most of your teeth are in good condition, and can make speaking and chewing easier and prevent teeth neighboring the gap from drifting out of place. These dentures are removable and will be secured to the teeth on either side of the missing ones.
Choosing Your Dentures
Still not sure which dentures are right for you? Don’t worry — your dentist can help talk you through the differences and the pros and cons of each type of dentures. Depending on your priorities and your needs, different dentures may be a better fit.
