What Are the Different Types of Denture Prosthesis?

Posted on 6/19/2023 by Front Desk
What Are the Different Types of Denture Prosthesis?There are many ways a patient with missing teeth can replace them with the help of a dental expert. After a thorough assessment, a dentist can recommend a range of dental solutions to replace the missing teeth. Some of these teeth replacement solutions include bridge, denture, or implant. Depending on the current state of your mouth and the reason for losing teeth, the dentist can help you make the best decision for your oral health to replace missing teeth. If dentures are recommended, you will be aware of the different types of dentures and the benefits each offers since they vary in purpose and material.

Full Dentures

Also referred to as complete dentures, they consist of lower and upper sets and can be removable depending on the patient's preference or dentist's advice. These dentures are made of acrylic or porcelain and held together by a metal or acrylic base. These appliances are commonly used when a patient has lost all the teeth, affecting their appearance. With full dentures, a patient can regain their natural look, enhancing their self-confidence.

Partial Dentures

These dentures are designed to partially fit a patient's mouth's lower or upper part where missing teeth leave a gap. Partial dentures can be removed when need be and can help you regain confidence since they can replace a few missing teeth, making them quite convenient.

Temporary Dentures

These dentures are also referred to as immediate dentures and can be fixed soon after teeth are removed. These dentures are usually recommended for patients who are waiting for patients who are waiting for permanent dentures. They are an excellent way of preparing your mouth for permanent dentures or if the patient has a history of sensitive gums and teeth. Before having dentures fixed, it is crucial to consult an expert to determine the most effective denture prosthesis.
