Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Whether you’re struggling with mild or severe tooth loss, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Kevin Dann so he can learn more about your medical and dental history. From there, he can determine if you’re a good candidate for dentures. The good news is that this tried-and-true tooth-replacement solution is suitable for a wide range of patients, including those who don’t have any of their natural teeth left. If for any reason dentures aren’t ideal, like if you’re only missing one tooth, then Dr. Dann will recommend a different solution, like a single dental implant.

Types of Dentures

At our Toronto dental office, we offer more than one type of denture. That way, we can help patients at all stages of tooth loss! Read on for a brief overview of partial, full, and implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures work like a puzzle piece, filling in the gaps in your smile with ease. Whether we’re replacing several teeth in a row or multiple teeth throughout your mouth, we’ll use a gum-colored base and custom-made prosthetic teeth to ensure your restoration looks natural and functions well.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, on the other hand, are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. While there are some similarities with partial dentures, including a gum-colored base and custom prosthetic teeth, there are also some distinct differences, including that it’s held in place with natural suction or denture adhesive.

Implant Dentures

While traditional dentures rest against your gums, implant dentures get their strength from your jawbone. This helps prevent bone loss, but there are other benefits too, including the fact that the results can last for several decades with proper care.
