What Are Dentures?

Dentures are dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are designed to resemble natural teeth and gums, providing support and restoring the appearance and function of a person’s smile. Dentures can be a suitable option for people who have lost some or all of their teeth due to various reasons, such as tooth decay, gum disease, trauma, or age-related issues.

Full dentures take the place of missing teeth, standing in for complete tooth loss. Partial dentures, on the other hand, stand in for partial tooth loss.

What is the Difference Between Full and Partial Dentures?

There are two primary types of dentures – Full Dentures, also known as Complete Dentures, and Partial Dentures.

A complete denture means a full set of artificial teeth on a gum-colored arch. The arch depends on your gums and natural suction for support. These are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. They are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth and are held in place by suction, natural oral muscles, and sometimes dental adhesives.

A partial denture means artificial teeth placed strategically on a gum-colored arch to fill in only the smile gaps for a seamless finish. Partial dentures rely on healthy teeth, clips, or implants for support.

Are Dentures Right for You?

Oak Family Dental offers a variety of tooth replacement options to restore your smile, but if you are considering dentures, the first step is always a consultation—especially if you have not been to the dentist in a while.

Considerations for denture candidacy may include the condition of your jaw bone, as tooth loss leads to bone loss. However, most patients can successfully wear dentures.

For partial dentures, it is essential that your remaining teeth are healthy to support this appliance.

If dentures are right for you, your dentist takes impressions of your mouth. We use these results to create your custom denture or partial denture.

For those looking for added stability, we can also provide an implant-supported denture. This means four or more dental implants lock your denture in place.

How to Care for Your Dentures and Your Oral Health?

Even if you have full or partial dentures, it is still crucial to visit your dentist at least twice each year for dental exams. Tooth replacement will not prevent gum disease, which can cause additional tooth loss and even loss of your denture. For partial denture wearers, it’s important to keep your remaining teeth healthy to support your prosthetic.

You should also soak your denture daily in a denture bath and never use toothpaste to clean your plate or artificial teeth. There are denture pastes available that are less abrasive compared with toothpaste but just as effective.

If you notice a crack in your denture, it is important to contact your dentist—these cracks allow for the accumulation of bacteria, which can lead to gum disease.

Getting dentures is a gift you give yourself, and with proper care and maintenance can last many years. We encourage all our patients to be active in their oral health, so we take the time to go through all your options and explain each procedure. In the end, the decision is up to you—you will always have an ultimate say in your smile treatment plan. We will still support your choices and will work with you to achieve your dream smile.

All Your Dental Solutions in One Place

At Oak Family Dental, we have denture options to fit your lifestyle and needs. Some of our patients enjoy removable dentures, while others prefer permanent implant-retained dentures. The choice is yours, but we are happy to explain the process of either and which dental treatment is perfect for you.

We offer full or complete dentures in Metairie and Mandeville for patients who are missing all their teeth in either their upper or lower arches.

Partial dentures are for patients who are missing a few teeth, but not all of them. Partial dentures anchor to neighboring teeth using teeth clasps to support the prosthetic.

While removable dentures instantly restore your smile and bite function, many patients dislike how these dentures can shift or move around over time and as the jawbone shrinks away. Implant-Supported Dentures can treat this issue by anchoring your prosthetic to your jawbone to eliminate any movement.
