Why Choose Langworthy Family Dentistry for Dentures?

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are an excellent choice for people who are missing anywhere from a few to all of their teeth. Eating and speaking shouldn’t be made difficult. Depending on the number of teeth you’re missing and where they are located in the mouth, a customized plan can be created just for you. However, if you have any existing oral health issues, like periodontal disease or tooth decay, these need to be treated and completely eliminated ahead of time. Our number one priority is the health of your smile!

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures out there to cater to a variety of different needs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Langworthy will determine which one is most ideal for you:

Partial Dentures

If you are missing multiple teeth, but still have remaining healthy teeth, a partial denture may be the right option for you. They are created by bonding replacement teeth to a gum-like base that clips to remaining teeth to hold them into place. This way, missing teeth in different locations of an arch can be replaced with a single restoration.

Full Dentures

While partial dentures rely on neighboring teeth to stay in place, full dentures are held in thanks to the natural shape and suction of the gums. This type of denture can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. It is made from a gum-colored acrylic base and enamel-colored replacement teeth for a natural-looking finish.

Implant Dentures

For a more stable denture that lasts longer than traditional methods, dental implant dentures are a great solution. A series of screw-like implants are placed throughout the jawbone before the customized restoration is attached. The additional stability allows patients to regain up to 70% of their natural chewing power. Implant dentures are also designed to last for many decades, so you don’t need to worry about routine repairs and replacements.
