Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Have you lost a few, several, or even all of your teeth? If so, then chances are you’re a good candidate for dentures! Each of these prosthetics are customized to meet your specific needs and complement your facial features to appear natural. Dr. Dunker or Dr. Buck can examine your mouth and determine whether you can begin the denture treatment process straight away or whether you’ll require some preparatory procedures first, such as gum disease therapy or tooth extractions. These treatments will ensure that your dentures have the healthy foundation they need to deliver years of lifelike smiles.
Types of Dentures
During your consultation with your dentist in Mount Vernon, you’ll learn about the three basic types of dentures:
As the name implies, partial dentures bring back missing teeth when you still have some natural teeth in an arch. We capture impressions of your remaining teeth to ensure the replacement teeth blend right in with them. Once we have designed and created your partial denture, it attaches to your real teeth with metal clasps. It fills in the gaps so seamlessly that your denture is practically indistinguishable from your home-grown pearly whites!
If you have lost all of the teeth on your top and/or bottom arch, then a full denture can recreate all of them at the same time. Instead of relying on a metal framework, the acrylic base of a full denture sits on top of your gums and stays in place with a natural suction force. Denture adhesive can also be used for added stability.
Alternatively, a full or partial denture can be attached to dental implants. These titanium posts are surgically placed in your jaw, where they fuse with the bone and function like the roots of your missing teeth. This allows implant dentures to not only last longer than traditional ones, but also restore more chewing power and prevent embarrassing slippage.
The Benefits of Dentures
As a tried-and-true tooth replacement, you can look forward to multiple benefits of dentures, including:
- Modern dentures are personalized to be more realistic and comfortable than ever before.
- You’ll be able to speak with clarity again.

- Smiling with confidence will be a breeze.
- Cleaning dentures is pretty simple, and it’s made easier by the fact that you can take them out of your mouth.
