What types of dentures are available?
If you are considering dentures, you should know that a lot has changed in recent years! Gone are the days of fake-looking artificial teeth that look like they belong to someone else. Modern dentures are individually customized to complement your appearance resulting in replacement teeth that look as close to natural teeth as possible.
There are three types of dentures available:
- Full dentures in Columbia, IL are the right option for you if all your teeth are missing in your upper arch, lower arch, or both. Artificial teeth are customized and positioned in a gum-colored base which is held in place by suction.
- Partial dentures are a good choice if you have one or more teeth missing because they’re customized to fit in and around existing teeth. Partials may be set on an acrylic base or held in place with clasps attached to remaining teeth.
- Implant-supported dentures combine the best of removable full and partials with advanced dental implant technology. We place one or more dental implants in your jaw and design dentures with attachments that snap onto the implants. Implant dentures look, feel, and function most like natural teeth and eliminate the shifting that is so common with removable dentures.
