Whether you’ve lost teeth due to gum disease or injury, dentures can effectively replace them. These prosthetic teeth attach to a pink, gum-colored base that looks identical to your gums. Modern dentures are a realistic, seamless addition to your smile that restore the look and function of your mouth.
There are three main types of dentures provided at American Family Dentistry:
Full dentures replace all your teeth if you have none left. These dentures consist of prosthetic teeth that attach to an acrylic pink base, which covers the roof of your mouth and part of your gums in the lower arch.
Partial dentures replace some of your teeth. While partial dentures do attach to a gum-colored base, the base does not cover the roof of your mouth. Instead, partial dentures often connect to a metal framework, which holds them in place.
Implant-supported dentures connect directly to dental implants — small titanium posts that screw into your gums and jawbone to replace your tooth roots. Instead of resting on top of your gums, dental implants hold your dentures securely in place, making it easier to chew and speak.
