What are dentures?

Dentures are false teeth and gums, made out of plastic to replicate your natural teeth. They are either full or partial, implying they can either replace all teeth or as per the requirement. Regardless of which type of dentures you might need, they are custom-made to replace lost or removed teeth. There are different types of dentures if you are not aware of them, we can explain a few examples of dentures and find out which one is the best for you.

What are the types of dentures

1. Complete dentures (Traditional)
2. Partial dentures
3. Implant-supported dentures
4. Custom dentures
5. Immediate dentures
6. Snap-in dentures

1. Complete dentures

As the name suggests, full dentures are a replica of a complete set of teeth. They cover the entire portion of your jaw, upper and lower, or partly one of them. They are also called ‘Plates.’ Complete dentures rest on the top of your gums, opposite to bridges. After getting your tooth extracted, it takes about 8-12 weeks to start using dentures.

2. Partial dentures

Removable partial dentures are made of a metal framework with teeth and gums. Partial Dentures are used for patients with some natural teeth. Fixed partial dentures, also known as bridges, are cemented in place. Bridges are made in different ways. Some are made of porcelain and some are made with enamel covering a gold framework. There are two types of appendages that are used in partial dentures — precision attachments and metal clasps. They help to prevent the other teeth from moving and are made from all-acrylic or acrylic material.

3. Custom dentures

Custom dentures are more natural-looking compared to full or partial dentures. They are made as per requirements, and you can even see and inspect them before they are completed.

4. Immediate dentures

They are one of the fattest installed dentures, as they are placed on the same day the teeth are extracted, the only concern is that you have to be the right candidate for an immediate denture.

5. Implant-supported dentures

With implant-supported dentures, a dental implant is placed to support the denture securely. A denture provides a significant amount of support for a solid foundation, which allows the denture to stay firmly in place.

6. Snap-in dentures

They are very much similar to partial dentures, snap-in dentures are the most preferred pick when it comes to stability. They are braced securely in a spot with the help of anchors on the existing teeth. The dental implants placed in the jaw help the dentures to snap into the locator’s attachments.
