Missing teeth can be replaced in various ways. When you visit a qualified dentist, he can recommend the best possible option like a dental implant or a dental bridge, or a denture. If you are recommended to use dentures, you can rest assured that they are available in various types and sizes in the market today.

Naturally, it is important for you to have an idea about the benefits offered by various kinds of dentures while trying to decide on the most suitable one for your needs. 

Here we have listed some of the different kinds of denture options that you can choose from.

Full denture

These are recommended to patients who have lost all of their teeth. Full dentures are used as a substitute tooth and these have to be fitted atop the gums. Within a few weeks of extracting the last tooth from the mouth, full dentures are fitted in place and the process takes 8 to 12 weeks. 

These comprise of lower as well as upper set of teeth and they are easy to wear and remove. These are kept in place with the help of suction. Full dentures are made of acrylic or porcelain with a metal or acrylic base that holds them together. This can help fill your mouth again and make you confident while smiling.

Full Dentures can also be secured with the help of denture adhesive. This can prevent the discomfort that can be caused due to any food particles trapping beneath a denture. When cared for and maintained in a proper way full denture or complete denture can last for around 5 to 10 years.

These have a more natural appearance, as the dentures are composed of costly porcelain or ceramic material.

Immediate denture

Such a denture is made fast and immediately put in position following the removal of natural teeth. A few points must be kept in mind here while using these. 

  • Other cavities should not be there. 
  • Also, your dentist needs to take exact measurements for accurate dentures to be made. 
  • These have to be put in place right after the extraction of natural teeth.

Overdenture

These tend to rest on the gums along with dental implants. These are convenient as patients can remove them whenever needed.

Upper denture

These are fitted upon the upper jaw for the substitution of upper teeth and are often used today.

Implant-supported dentures

These types of dentures are supported by a dental implant. The denture has to rest in place upon the implant in a proper manner. As compared to other types of dentures, these can last for a longer duration.
