How to Know If You Are a Good Candidate for Dentures

We understand that missing teeth can make it difficult to eat and speak with ease. It can also cause smile insecurities. You shouldn’t have to settle for a smile that isn’t functioning or looking its best. At Jackson Smiles Family Dentistry, we proudly offer a variety of tooth replacement solutions, including dentures to help you get your smile back on track!

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are oral prostheses that are designed to look just like a natural set of teeth. They have a gum-like base with false teeth attached. When dentures are put in place, they will fill in any gaps in your smile or complete the rest of the smile. Dentures are a versatile tooth replacement solution because they can replace a full or partial arch of teeth. There are two types of dentures: traditional and implant-supported.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are the original type of dentures, but don’t fear, they have had many advancements over the years to make them look and feel great! They are attached using a strong denture adhesive and secured onto the gum line. Traditional dentures are also a cost-effective tooth replacement option, so patients don’t have to break the bank to replace their teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a high-tech tooth replacement solution. Instead of attaching to the gums with adhesive, the dentures snap onto implants. Dental implants are small, titanium rods that are implanted into the jawbone where the missing teeth once were. With implants, dentures are snapped into place and won’t budge until you remove them.
