Types of Dentures
Full Dentures replace a complete arch of teeth. When used to replace the upper arch, they include an acrylic base that covers the gums and the roof of the mouth, providing a firm fit. Full dentures for the lower arch are similar, but the base is shaped like a horseshoe to avoid restricting the tongue.
Partial Dentures fill gaps left by several individual missing teeth and are attached in many ways, most commonly by metal clips. Our dentist can also secure your partial to crowns if the anchoring teeth require treatment, which may actually improve the fit of your denture. When you receive partial dentures from our Central Park dentist, you have the option of having your existing teeth whitened before we professionally shade match your new prosthetic for a uniformly brighter smile.
Implant-Supported Dentures are dentures that are secured by titanium posts that have integrated into your jaw. This method provides the most stability and can be permanently fixed or, in the case of overdentures, removable. To be eligible for implant-supported dentures, you should have healthy gums and teeth and adequate jawbone volume. Bone grafting can be performed to augment your jaw for the implant procedure, as necessary.
Which is Right for You?
If you have no existing teeth and want a fast and affordable replacement option, Dr. Shahinyan typically recommends a full adhesive-based denture. She will also discuss the cost and process for implant-supported dentures since these are a more comprehensive solution.
If you have any healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture will be most appropriate. If your remaining teeth are not healthy, our dentist will determine if they can be treated and topped with crowns to support a partial denture or if they should be extracted. Depending on your specific case, she will make a recommendation for either a partial or full denture. With all treatment plans, Dr. Shahinyan and her team will make sure you are aware of all associated costs and any alternatives that are available for your needs.
