Millions of Americans have dentures. But how do you know if you need dentures? Here are some indicators that dentures might be a good option for you:
You are missing multiple teeth: Missing teeth limit your ability to chew, smile, speak normally, and enjoy daily life. It also puts a disproportionate amount of stress on your surrounding teeth because they have to bear the role of your missing teeth. Dentures can restore these abilities and make it possible to eat what you want, smile confidently, and speak naturally.
You avoid smiling in public: It’s normal to feel self-conscious or want to hide your smile if you are not fond of how it looks. Dentures will fill the gap in your smile so that you can show off your amazing teeth to your family and friends.
You often have inflamed and bleeding gums: If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, which will then lead to needing dentures.
Dentures are a cost-effective option to help you smile, enjoy your favorite food, and perform activities with confidence that require your teeth. Give us a call to discuss your options today!
What Is the Difference Between a Denture and a Partial Denture?
There are a variety of options that we offer for replacing missing teeth. Dentures and partial dentures both replace missing teeth, with the greatest difference being the number of teeth they replace. Full dentures replace your entire set of upper and lower teeth, while partial dentures fill the gaps of your remaining teeth.
Dentures vs. Implants
Dentures and implants are both restorations designed to restore missing teeth, but they have similarities and differences:
A dental implant is surgically implanted into your jaw. A dental implant has three parts: the implant, the abutment post, and a prosthetic tooth that is attached to the abutment post.
Dental implants mimic the entire tooth structure. They are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Because implants are inserted into the jawbone they function like natural teeth.
Dentures are a removable set of prosthetic teeth. Similar to implants, they help you bite, chew, and smile. However, unlike implants, they are not inserted into your jawbone.
Dentures do not cost as much as dental implants, making them a more cost-friendly option.
If you are having a difficult time deciding which option is best for you, give us a call and schedule a consultation.
Did you know that you can get implant-supported dentures? The All-on-4® treatment concept is a technique that combines implant and denture technology. Here’s how it works:
First, the dentist will place four implants into your jawbone.
We will create impressions to make your set of custom dentures.
When you come in for your final appointment, we will place the dentures and show you how to remove them. Your new dentures can be removed as needed throughout the day.

The All-on-4® treatment concept is popular for many reasons:
Save money and achieve similar results: A full set of dental implants is a significant financial investment. However, with this technique you save money and achieve similar results like eating your favorite food, improved oral health, and more smiling.
Save time for your busy lifestyle: A full set of dental implants require many visits to our office. While you will still have multiple appointments, the All-on-4® treatment concept is significantly less time intensive because only four implants are used.
Discover a long-lasting new smile: With proper care for your oral health—like daily brushing and flossing—dental implants last a long time.
They require minimal bone density for use: Dental implants are inserted in an existing portion of your jawbone. If you are missing a portion of bone, we can use the available bone for the procedure.
