Dentures are prosthetic oral appliances that replace missing teeth. They have a gum-colored base that holds the artificial teeth in place. The artificial teeth are typically made from porcelain or composite resin, which have a similar color and translucency as your tooth enamel.
With great advances in denture technology in recent years, today’s dentures are much more comfortable and natural-looking than they used to be, giving you a beautifully restored smile that you’ll be proud to share with the world.
Dentures offer a variety of benefits, including:
Dentures also restore your smile, which can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social situations and day-to-day activities.
The team at Palmetto Family Dental offers a wide range of dentures, including:
Full dentures replace all of the teeth on either your upper or lower arch, or both. They sit on top of your gums and attach with either a suction or adhesive mechanism.
Implant-supported dentures are held in place by dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots that your provider surgically embeds in your jawbone. Dental implants are made from biocompatible materials, like titanium or ceramic, enabling them to fuse with your bone tissue and provide a highly sturdy foundation for your dentures.
Implant-supported dentures tend to feel more stable and secure in your mouth. They have the added benefit of providing healthy stimulation to your jawbone, which helps prevent bone loss.
Your provider might suggest partial dentures if you need to replace multiple missing teeth but still have healthy teeth left in your smile. Partial dentures secure to your smile through either hidden metal clasps or a base that sits on top of your gums with holes where you still have natural teeth.
Dentures feel great once you get used to wearing them, since they help retain the shape of your face and enhance your ability to properly eat and speak. Most patients go through an adjustment period, however, where their dentures feel loose, bulky, or uncomfortable. This is entirely expected, since the muscles in your mouth need time to adjust to the new device.
