What are the types of dentures?

Dentures are dental prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth and are available in various forms. Complete dentures consist of a larger structure to replace an entire row of teeth. In the past, complete dentures were the most conventional, and because they replaced all teeth on a jaw, they could be attached to a plate for a greater surface area for adhesive.

Partial dentures restore between one and several teeth, where you have adjacent natural teeth that may serve as an attaching point for the restoration. You may have heard some partial dentures referred to as dental bridges.

Implant Supported Dentures in Lake Forest

Implant supported dentures at dentist in Lake Forest CAImplant-supported dentures are a modern marvel. With this option, your Lake Forest dentist surgically implants a structure best described as an artificial tooth root. Then, your dentures are attached to special connectors on the artificial root, creating a solid connection between your mouth and your denture, with no slippage or movement of any kind.

Depending on the size of your restoration, your dentist will decide how many implants you’ll need. For a complete denture, you may choose an All-on-4 restoration, which uses four implants as the connection points for a full-mouth bridge that can be used and cared for easily.
