Is There a Better Option Than Dentures?

Posted in Dentures

A denture may be the first tooth replacement option that comes to mind. But you don’t want to be known as someone who wears false teeth.

Are there any other alternatives? Fortunately, you have quite a few to choose from, depending on your tooth replacement needs.

Dental Implants

If you’re missing just a single tooth, then there’s no need to quickly jump to the conclusion that you need dentures.

One or two dental implants may be all you need to complete your smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Are you missing most or all of your teeth? You might need a denture, after all. The good news is that you may qualify to anchor your appliance onto dental implants. This gives you more security and confidence than wearing a regular denture on its own.

Dental Bridge

A bridge is a classic “permanent” solution for replacing missing teeth. Bridges are permanent in that they can be fixed to other teeth instead of removable like dentures.

Partial Denture

If you have healthy remaining teeth, then there’s no hurry to get them pulled out and replaced with a denture. You might opt for a partial denture, instead. This appliance is removable, but it’s secure since it snaps around your natural teeth for support.

Is a Denture Your Only Option?

If your health won’t allow you to have implant surgeries, then you may have no choice but to get a denture. This is especially true if you don’t have many healthy natural teeth left to work with, either.

In the end, a simple classic denture may be the best for you considering your health and circumstances. Contact a denture provider near you for an evaluation.
