If you need dentures, you have options. Dentistry and oral surgery are rapidly expanding fields, and new technologies are creating more choices for denture wearers than ever before. Below, we’ll go over the most common types of dentures and explain why implant secured dentures might be the option for you.
What Are the Different Types of Dentures?
There are a few different types of dentures. Complete dentures are designed for people who need replacements for all of their teeth, whereas partial dentures are designed for people who still have some natural teeth remaining.
Traditional dentures are removable, so a patient must take them out of their mouth to properly care for them. Implant secured dentures are non-removable dentures that an oral surgeon attaches to your jawbone using a dental implant.
Choosing Implant Secured Dentures
Patients choose implant secured dentures for a variety of reasons. These dentures tend to fit into people’s lifestyles better than conventional dentures because they do not need to be removed and the patient does not need to worry about an embarrassing denture slip. After the healing process, these dentures will look and act like natural teeth, which is a comfort to people dealing with teeth loss.
Implant secured denture also stimulate the jawbone the way a tooth root does. This promotes jawbone health, allowing the bones to stay strong and supportive over time.
