Different Types of X-Rays

There are two types of dentures according to the number of missing teeth.

Partial Dentures

These dentures are used when some of your natural teeth are missing but the remaining natural teeth are weak and unable to support structures such as dental bridges.

Cast partial dentures are made up of a combination of metal and acrylic which gives them strength.

Such dentures rest on a metal framework attached to your natural teeth.

Some partial dentures are entirely made up of acrylic but are less durable.

Partial dentures are less invasive and also less expensive as compared to other alternatives to replace missing teeth.

Complete Dentures

These dentures are used to replace all the teeth of upper and lower jaw. They are held in place along your gum by suction or oral adhesive.

Just like partial dentures, they can easily be inserted and removed from mouth.

Complete dentures can be of two types:

  1. Conventional Dentures: These dentures are not placed immediately after extraction. Instead, your dentist will let your tissues heal before the dentures are inserted.

2. Immediate Dentures: These dentures are placed immediately after the removal of remaining teeth to promote excessive healing. Such dentures need to be relined several times because during healing of gums, denture loosens its fitting.

Overdentures

These dentures are used to replace all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw. They are held in place along your gum by suction or oral adhesive.

Implant Support Dentures

As the name suggests, implant-supported dentures are attached to the dental implants.

A dental implant is a permanent fixture that can be anchored to your jaw bone and is used to replace several teeth.

Such dentures are more common in the lower jaw because your upper jaw may have denture fit issues.

Implant-supported dentures are a great option for individuals who are seeking an affordable option to significantly improve their ability to chew and smile.

These dentures can prove to be beneficial as they preserve your bone and gum tissues. Moreover, they function more like normal teeth and are easy to remove like other dentures.
