Your choices for dentures include:

  • Partial Denture – If you still have many healthy teeth, this type of denture can fill the gaps created by missing teeth or damaged teeth that need to be removed.
  • Full Denture – This type of removable denture will fill your mouth with a whole arch of realistic replacement teeth.
  • Temporaries – Don’t spend a moment without a full smile. Temporary dentures are a great option to ensure you always have a full mouth of teeth.
  • Implant-Retained Denture – Dr. Shook combines the power of dental implant restoration with the restorative beauty of dentures. Your new denture is held firmly in place by ball connectors on top of your dental implants.
  • Implant-Supported Denture – A bar is fitted to your dental implants that attaches to your denture. This keeps your new teeth right where they are supposed to be, no matter what you are doing.

Common Questions About Dentures

Who might need dentures?

If you are missing all or nearly all your teeth, dentures are a fantastic way to get back your smile and your bite. Depending on your individual situation, you may want either full or partial dentures. Full dentures replace a complete arch of teeth on one or both of your jaws, while partials are used when you have some healthy teeth remaining.

Which is better: dentures or implants?

Conventional dentures cost less than dental implant dentures. However, some of the benefits of implants may make it worth the added cost. For instance, dental implants will keep you from suffering the bone loss that causes your jaw to shrink, giving you an older appearance and making it more difficult to keep your dentures in place. They can also last a lifetime.

What types of dentures are there?

There are many types of dentures; however, they fall into several broad categories. You can get conventional full dentures for replacing a complete arch of teeth, conventional partial dentures if you have some healthy teeth remaining, or implant-secured dentures that will give you excellent stability and performance. Temporary dentures are also available while your final dentures are being made.
