Thanks to technological advancements, dentures have become much more efficient, comfortable, and attractive than they were many years ago. Dentures have also been made more durable and can last for many decades.

If you are looking to get dentures, our experts at Singing River Dentistry in Russellville, AL are here to explain how they work and the different types that exist.

Our dentists will restore your smile with the right dentures that address your specific oral problem.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

There are several benefits of using dentures - discussed below.

•  Natural and Confident Appearance - You will have a natural and confident appearance thanks to dentures. These oral appliances come with a cohesive look that guarantees a radiant smile.

You will regain your confidence and be able to interact with others freely. Dentures replace missing teeth that make your face appear smaller. With dentures, your face will appear livelier and fuller.

•  They Are Easy to Maintain - Another benefit of using dentures is that they are incredibly easy to maintain. You can easily clean them either inside or outside your mouth.

We advise that you rinse them after meals to prevent the accumulation of bacteria.

It is easy to store your dentures without using them - keep them in a glass of cool water. You don't have to invest in advanced storage methods that could be costly.

•  They Work on Anyone - Other restorative dentistry procedures require patients to meet criteria like a healthy jaw and sufficient bone mass; dentures can work on anyone.

You can get dentures even if you don't have the healthiest teeth, jaw, or gums. You don't need to have strong bones or perfectly healthy teeth and gums to get dentures. This makes them very beneficial.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

There are different types of dentures. Knowing some of them will help you choose the right one in relation to dental problems. Here are the common types of dentures: complete and partial traditional dentures, implant supported dentures, same day immediate dentures, and snap on dentures.

Complete & Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are one of the most common types of dentures. These dentures are used to replace one or multiple missing teeth in your mouth. They can also help solve biting and chewing problems after losing your teeth.

And, of course, partial dentures can be great for aesthetic function as they help improve your smile.

If you have lost teeth in one side of your mouth, partial dentures are a great fit.

These dentures typically contain one or several replacement teeth depending on your needs. The teeth rest on a metal or plastic base that is colored pink to match your gums and the roof of your mouth.

Partial dentures can be removed at any time, making them convenient. They are not designed to last permanently in your mouth and will need replacement after some time. You should also remember to take good care of them to avoid damage.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported overdentures are also a common alternative. This is a type of removable denture that is connected to your dental implants.

Dental implants are fitted with a unique mechanism that allows dentures to lock them securely.

Implant supported overdentures are different from traditional dentures because they don't sit directly on the gum tissues. Even though regular dentures can do a good job by themselves, implant supported overdentures can provide function, comfort, and better aesthetics.

You will have a natural and beautiful smile with these dentures. Implant supported overdentures were specially designed to help patients with partial or complete tooth loss regain dental functionality.

While traditional dentures are held with aligners, implant supported overdentures are anchored on metallic posts. This provides better stability that enhances the tooth's functionality. You can bite and chew on hard foods without worrying about breakage.

Same Day Dentures / Immediate Dentures

These dentures can be put in place right after your teeth have been extracted.

When you come in for a tooth extraction, we will place same-day dentures after the procedure.

Also referred to as immediate dentures, these dentures fit in your mouth after undergoing an extraction procedure.
These dentures can therefore be a great confidence booster as they enhance your smile significantly.

They fill gaps left by missing teeth and give you a more natural smile. If you have lost your teeth and need new dentures within 24 hours, same-day dentures are the go-to option.

These dentures come with a wide range of benefits, including the fact that you can get them on the same day. You don't have to spend weeks waiting for dentures as they will be ready in no time.

Fixed Dentures with Dental Implants

Even though fixed dentures with dental implants are not very common, they are another reliable alternative.

What makes these dentures unique is that you don't have to remove them from your mouth. We can fix dentures to implant bridges and help restore your teeth functionality.

You don't have to worry about the stability and efficiency of the dentures as they are firmly fitted into your mouth.

Fixing dentures to implant bridges allows you to enjoy a wide range of foods without worrying about their stability.

They are permanently fitted, and you will never have to remove them. In addition, they are durable and function just like natural teeth.

Snap On Dentures

Snap-on dentures feel and look like traditional removable dentures.

What makes them different is that they have several locators on the underside of the plate, which can attach to the dental implant abutments.

Snap on dentures fit very comfortably in your mouth and cannot shift or rub against your gums. They are also very secure and durable.
