Have you lost most or all of your natural teeth? A denture is a removable appliance that can restore your smile. Bella Dentistry, LLCA in Athens, GA offers high-quality dentures that will save you time and money in the long run. Our dentist, Dr. Chanda Bennett, provides exceptional denture services. Read on to learn about the different types of dentures that are available today.
1. Full Dentures- Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. This denture is created and placed in your mouth after your remaining natural teeth have been removed and the tissues have healed.
2. Partial Dentures- A partial denture is used when some teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework that attach to the teeth. Sometimes dental crowns are placed on some of the natural teeth and serve as anchors for the partial denture.
3. Overdentures- An overdenture is attached to either two dental implants or two mini-implants. The implants help to stabilize the overdenture in the mouth. An overdenture can be removed for cleaning purposes, and will require less investment than a fixed dental bridge.
4. Implant-Supported Dentures- Implant-supported dentures can be used if you do not have any natural teeth in your jaw, but have enough bone to support dental implants. An implant-supported denture is attached to dental implants. Regular dentures rest on the gums, and aren't supported by dental implants.
A denture is a good solution if you are missing multiple teeth because it fills the gaps in your smile and helps make eating and talking easier. Are you ready for a brand new smile?
