Missing teeth can impact your oral health, and compromise your ability to enjoy everyday activities like eating your favorite foods. Dentures are a tried and true method of restoration, designed to replace most or all of your natural teeth on the upper or lower dental arch.
Traditional Dentures vs. Dental Implant Dentures
A traditional denture is a removable arch of artificial teeth that rests comfortably over your gums. The gum and palate areas of a denture are formed from pink acrylic, and the prosthetic teeth (spanning an entire bottom or top arch of missing teeth) are typically fabricated from porcelain. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and rely on suction and adhesives for support.
Dental implant dentures are created by small titanium posts that are surgically embedded in the jawbone. After the implants fuse with the bone over a period of several months, they provide a very secure foundation for a denture.
What Kind of Dentures Are Right for Me?
Choosing dentures is an important and personal decision—one that is best made in collaboration with a skilled dentist like Dr. Kohler. He will work closely with you, considering factors such as lifestyle, cost and aesthetic goals in order to recommend the denture option that feels and looks incredibly lifelike and provides you with lasting satisfaction.
