Conventional dentures have been commonly used in the past to address missing teeth. They are an economical solution for patients who are on a tight budget and are interested in finding a way to replace their teeth without breaking the bank. Dentures come in two types – full dentures and partial dentures.
Patients who are missing one or more teeth within an arch will be great candidates for partial dentures. Partial dentures are made of a metal framework and integrate in false teeth called pontics which slide into the empty spaces from missing teeth. The other option is for patients who are missing all of the teeth either on the top or bottom arch. These restorations are made of acrylic. They include false gums and teeth. They are placed over the gums and they can be held in place using implants, natural suction, or denture adhesives. Many patients use full dentures to replace all of their teeth once disease or other problems have caused them to lose their entire smile.
