What are the different types of dentures?

Dentures in San Jose, CA can complete your smile and make you feel like a superstar. There are several different dentures, including complete (full) dentures, partial dentures, and implant-retained dentures. Each of these dentures have their own unique set of benefits and characteristics, but one thing is certain—they all can restore your smile!

#1 Complete (Full) Dentures

Complete, or full dentures, replace all of your teeth, sitting on top of the gums instead of being attached to the remaining teeth. Within 8-12 weeks of tooth removal or extraction, complete dentures can be placed. Once they are placed, you will be ready to greet the world with your new, beautiful smile!

#2 Partial Dentures 

Partial dentures help complete your natural smile if you’re missing only some of your teeth. Parietal dentures can be removed at will, but they also help prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty spaces left behind. These dentures are attached to your remaining teeth and create a seamless and natural-looking smile. 

#3 Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures stay secure in your mouth because a dental implant supports the denture. The implant provides a solid foundation for the denture, which helps your new smile stay in place. These dentures can be removed for cleaning and maintenance as well.
