Modern dentures are more comfortable, convenient, and reliable than the dentures that were available to dental patients in years past. Many people associate dentures with large, oversized teeth that look unnatural and interfere with the wearer’s ability to speak clearly. But advances in materials, fitting processes, and manufacturing mean that the dentures of today look and feel much more like real teeth.
At 101st Adult Dentistry, we’re proud to offer high-quality dentures at affordable prices. We love seeing the difference they make in our patients’ smiles and self-confidence, and that’s why we go to great lengths to make sure each patient gets the right solution for his or her dental needs.
And while dentures are great options for many people, they’re not right for everyone. If you’re interested in getting dentures for yourself or a loved one, read our list of ideal candidates below or call our office at (931) 906-8800 to set up consultation. We’ll evaluate your smile and determine if dentures are the right solution for you.
We Recommend Dentures for 3 Types of Patients
Our dental team recommends dentures for the following types of patients:
Patients who are missing all their teeth
Whether due to age, disease, or trauma, some patients end up losing all their teeth. These patients are ideal candidates for complete dentures, as they can easily be fitted for dentures that fit both their top and bottom gums. At 101st Adult Dentistry, we take impressions of patients’ mouths to make sure their complete dentures are perfect fits.
Patients who are missing multiple but not all their teeth
Dentures aren’t always full sets of teeth. Partial dentures are another option for patients who are missing multiple teeth, but not entire rows. Like complete dentures, they are created using molds of patients’ mouths, and they’re designed to fill the gaps between existing teeth, creating a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
Patients with broken, chipped, or unhealthy teeth in addition to missing teeth
Complete and partial dentures are also good options for patients with teeth that are badly damaged due to trauma, gum disease, or other oral health conditions. In some cases, a better result can be achieved by extracting unhealthy teeth and fitting a patient with dentures than other options that involve preserving damaged teeth.
